reason #2 why new years was awesome.

Kissing with a mouth full of grapes.

A tradition that Matthew started on his mission in Spain {and we've continued the last 3 years} is eating 12 grapes during the last 12 seconds of the year. It makes the whole kissing at midnight thing much more interesting, let me tell you. And we always make sure to have green grapes, because they are much bigger than red grapes, therefore much harder to have 12 in your mouth at one time. This should lead us to a year of good luck and success... or so the the legend says.

getting ready to count down..

I'm the lucky girl that got to kiss that

{it's harder than it looks to fit 12 grapes in your mouth}

I am so glad we have these silly traditions, it makes New Year's Eve more special that way. And funnier. Definitely funnier.


  1. Carla G you have the best ideas for traditions. Ryan and I need to think of some fun traditions of our own. Love the burning heads, hope it works and you guys have un prospero ano nuevo!

  2. I love it! You guys are the funnest!
