Happy New Year to one and all!
New Year greetings from my humble abode to yours.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
We had a blast celebrating New Year’s at our humble home. Two of my dear husband’s co-employees and their families came over to celebrate with us. They bought fireworks and we had fun shooting fireworks in a cold New Year’s Eve. The kids had fun dancing with Just Dance on Wii U. We’re supposed to do Just Sing Karaoke too, but for some reason the CD didn’t play.
It was a great New Year’s celebration. We missed a few family and friends but they were sick and my brother-in-law and his wife already had a commitment ahead of time.
Happy New Year to you! Wishing you all the best of 2017.
It’s amazing how time flies these days. It’s Christmas time again. Are you traveling to see family and friends and spend time with them this holiday season? Or, are you staying home and host a big Christmas Party? Whichever it is, I bet it’s going be a wonderful event for everyone.
As for me and my family, we are celebrating Christmas Day at my parents-in-law’s home in Tyler. While making this post, my dear husband is currently prepping the brisket to put in the oven in a few for tomorrow’s Christmas Day dinner.
This Christmas Eve, we attended the church service at 6:00 P.M. When we got home after church and had dinner, we started the party. The children could not wait to open their Christmas presents. So after dinner, we head on and started the Christmas Party. They started opening gifts from the youngest kid to the oldest. Boy, they were so excited and anxious!
So, the young ones had a great time opening their presents. I think everybody loved the stuff they got from the family. K was so excited to see if Santa will give her nice gifts for Christmas. We brought the reindeer food she received from the class Christmas Party at school since we’re at the grandparents’ house. We had to make sure Santa will stop by and drop off her presents. 🙂 Na-Na helped her scatter the reindeer food in the backyard. (FYI: Reindeer food is a mixture of oatmeal and glitters or sparkles.)
After the kids’ unwrapping presents, it was adults turn to open gifts and play the White Elephant Gift Exchange. We missed my brother-in-law and his wife in this year’s family Christmas Party because they’re both sick. Nephew M is in Florida and niece M and her family will be coming over tomorrow, Christmas Day.
It was a fun evening. So thankful for family, love, time, and the blessings we received all year.
