We had our big New Year’s feast last night–New Year’s Eve rather than on New Year’s Day. This gives everyone New Year’s Day to relax and rest up so that they are ready to go back to work and a regular schedule tomorrow!
These are pictures taken at dinner last night–we had the four immediate members of my family, the girlfriend and boyfriend of my son and daughter, and my parents. Our meal was simple–ham, mashed potatoes, peas, broccoli, salad and baking for desert–simple but delicious!
After dinner discussion was lively–the pros and cons of various large screen TV formats, computer technology, etc. This is my husband studying the research on TVs that he got off the Internet.
This is my husband and mother….
Later we spent the evening playing board games–Wizard, Sequence, and Scrabble.
This morning, those younger members of the family are still asleep and my husband headed off to work. I have the house to myself and I am enjoying the quiet.
I will leave you with a picture of Joey that sums up how I feel right now–too pooped to do much of anything after a great holiday season!
Happy New Year everyone!
