I bought some colorful party trumpets and sparklers for welcoming the New Year. Pop picollo is a kind of firecracker that produces a noise when you step on it or bang drop it. I didn't buy the ones that produce a very loud bang and can cause injuries in children. The trumpets are enough to make noise in welcoming year 2009.

We had finger foods for our New Year's Eve late dinner. I baked some bacon wrapped asparagus and tomato and made some canapes.
