Welcome 2012!

I’m a few days behind welcoming 2012 but my Christmas Celebrations post was over a week late so 4 days isn’t so bad.  Back to Saturday night, we met our friends Kate and Shawn at Tellers in Hyde Park for a New Years Eve dinner.

I didn’t take any pictures from dinner but let me tell you, it was fantastic!  I enjoyed the filet and Tony had angel hair pasta with scallops and bacon dressing.  They were both great but I have to say that mine was a little better!  After dinner we came back to our house and changed into jeans.  We headed to Oakley square which is only a 10 minute walk from our house to see the ball drop!
