Here's a brilliant, worthwhile way to spend seven spare minutes: watch these two videos and tell us which is your favorite.

Grab your kids first, they'll want to see this, too.

AWESOME, right?!

Ringing In

If the quality of our coming year is in any way connected to the quality of our New Year's Celebration, then 2011 is sure to be a year to remember.

Our annual NYE Christmas Tree Burn was gathered 'round by our closest friends, and sparks flew higher than ever. The kids all made it to midnight, which is good, because if they hadn't, they'd have missed the snow.

The Midnight Moment turned magnificently surreal when our bonfire sparks rose to meet huge flakes of snow, falling silently onto our squealing children. Magical, truly.

Back in the warmth of the house, we indulged in a little friendly boys v. girls Just Dance competition. Those pictures, however, are best left to the imagination.

We rung it in right, and can't wait to see what we get back.

Cheers, all, to 2011!
