Where Were We?

I believe I finally made it through Christmas.  Next on list was New Year's Eve.  Since Bean was born we've been available for New Year's Eve caregiving.
Cots are ready.
 First we went to the movies. Pap and Bean watched Star Wars while Bugg and I endured  enjoyed the latest Chipmunk nonsenses.
Then it was home for fireworks.

We watched the ball drop.
Toasted with sparkling cherry juice.

 Bugg still finds this drink rather ticklish.
 Rae's family joined us for the New Year lunch.  Usually it is supper, but my team was serving supper at the soup kitchen that evening, so we switched it up.

Here we're giving the traditional blessing gems, or balls as Bugg insists on calling them, a shake.
 Whoa, look at that, we have a blessing chicken.
 I love thinking and discovery, so when Bean wondered if Nestle Quik added would make chocolate blessing balls, I said, "Give it a whirl."
 Wise young man who noted that added something did not add to the enjoyment of the original.

Next, untrim the tree.
 Bugg and Giddy-Up spent much of the morning with playdough.
It was time for traditional cabbage, corn beef and black-eyed peas and thanking the Lord all all the good we've enjoyed and asking for His blessing in 2016.
Happy New Year to one and all.

  1. Amara has always been a huge Star Wars fan so we went to see it in IMAX on New Years Eve morning! We pretended it was New Year's Day. Look like all of you had a wonderful time. I hope 2016 will bring you and yours lots of health and happiness.
