Auld Lang Syne

Palmier cookies hurriedly made at the last minute: Check.

Hair & makeup: Check.

French/Mexican hosts, who together are amazing chefs, bar tenders, and all-around lovely people: Check.

Beautiful newly redecorated house with a pool and hot tub: Check.

One adorable baby who seems determined to make it all the way to midnight: Check.

One cheese plate that definitely includes a wheel of brie: Check.

One DJ with a laptop and excellent taste in music: Check.

A pair of Mexican men who love singing boleros and rancheras, even while the DJ is playing something else: Check.

Twelve grapes for good luck in the new year, to cram in my mouth during the 12 strokes of midnight: Check.

An assortment of noisemakers: Check.

An especially noisy Chilean who isn't afraid to use them, despite death glares from his wife: Check.

And the results are a particularly agreeable evening spent ringing in the new year.
