I did a little research to enlighten myself about the meaning of those words.
Auld Lang Syne.
What do they mean?
According to Wikipedia, Auld Lang Syne can be loosely translated to mean for the sake of old times.
For the sake of old times, we celebrated New Year's Eve with an activity on every hour.
We launched the festivities by making party hats.
6 p.m. brought snow-angels.
At 7 p.m. we made ice-cream floats.

At this point, the kiddies began to lose interest.
Not to mention the stomach flu hit and knocked out 1 and a half participants.
We had planned to decorate a '2012' banner at 9 p.m., have a dance party at 10 p.m. and tell a favourite memory from 2011 at 11 p.m.
When midnight rolled around, we were ready to ring in the New Year.
With what else, but...
Milk and cookies of course!
To all of you I wish a prosperous 2012 filled with much love and laughter.
Thank-you for visiting me over here at all is well...
I leave you with this...
Perhaps not the best photo...
But it is the only proof from the evening that I do have a hubby and he was in fact part of the festivities!
