Tanya McQueen for zitos

Lifetime's The Picker Sisters and ABC’s Extreme Home Makeover: Home Edition's lifestyle expert Tanya McQueen is back and this time she's got some great new family traditions that will help us feel "rejuvenated" into the New Year.

And bonus! She also has a delicious recipe for New Year's Beef Stew! Nom nom nom!

Tanya says:

"One of the best parts of growing up in a small town was being able to pop fireworks. Two times a year, July 4th and New Years, we waited with crinkled bills in hand to go buy our Black Cats, sparklers and roman candles.

Another great part of growing up in a small town, is that our parents seemed to not mind that a bunch of kids were running around in the pasture with open flames, lighting fireworks. Well, as we all know well, things aren’t always that carefree. For starters, I don’t think I’ve ever seen fireworks sold in the city, much less kids running around with matches and poppers in hand; obviously for good reason.

While I do miss those memories, I’ve started to create a few of my own. New Year’s is a great time for rejuvenation. Without sounding too mushy, I do spend the 31st of December thinking about my life, my marriage and my children. We usually spend the holidays in Texas, which allows for us to ring in the New Year with my extended family. The 31st finds us around a campfire, roasting marshmallows on sticks that each kid has to find on their own…(part of the thrill).

We always make a stew that is washed down with champagne, while the kid’s kick back with their sparkling juice. Dinner is followed with an annual hayride under the stars, while covered in blankets. Then, the pinnacle of the night, for ALL the kids, is that they get to stay up until MIDNIGHT…gasp!!! I can remember the thrill of fighting Mr. Sandman, when I was a kid. I would try so hard to stay awake for the ball to drop with very little success. Now it’s fun to watch my kids deny their fatigue and fight through the night waiting to usher in another year. Even though the kids put up a heck of a fight, we always find ourselves counting down the clock with very few of them awake. After a whirlwind of kisses and well wishes, we add another log to the fire, pour a celebratory glass of champagne and think about how lucky we are to be with our family.

May 2012 be your YEAR!!"

Making New Year's Eve family traditions for your children is a healthy and fun way to keep you connected for generations to come!

gwyneth paltrow to raise children jewish

So since she's said she doesn't believe in religion…is the plan to just raise them culturally Jewish? If so, we suppose we couldn't argue with that. Passover food is delish! LOLz.

Following Gwyneth Paltrow's recent appearance on ancestry show Who Do You Think You Are?, she's decided to raise her children as Jewish.
