Happy New Year!

We spent New Years Eve with the Meesters and the Kampmans. Jamie and Aaron are 2nd cousins and their families have spent New Years Eve together since they were very young. It's their family tradition to eat Specken-Dicken for New Years. They invited us over to join in on their tradition. It was our first specken-dicken and it was YUMMY! Specken-Dicken is a German New Years Tradition that is thought to bring good luck. It is basically meat pancakes.

Madison got to try some too

There 9 kids between our 3 families...it was a full house! They all wore their pj's for the party.
Lilly, Emma, Chloe, and Sophia Meester, Lucas, Ben and Eli Kampman, and Hunter and Madison.

Such a fun tradition!

Looks like everyone had a blast. I'll have to ask Dan and my in-laws about that German tradition. They are full German, speak fluently and everything but I've not heard of that tradition.
