We spent New Year's Eve with my cousin, Liz, her daughter, Sidney, and Mazin and his family at the First Night celebration in downtown St. Petersburg. They have so many activities including an ice skating rink, drum circle, arts and crafts, food vendors, horse drawn carriage rides and fireworks at 9pm and midnight. Michael Lynch, third runner up from last season's American Idol, was the star performer of the night.

I hope you all had a great New Year's Eve, and that 2011 brings you health and happiness.
