Happy 2010

We rung in the New Years with these three...

Brut, Owie & Mar 

{Not really...they were all in bed and fast asleep before 9:00. Jody and I barely made it past midnight ourselves!}

Banks and Mary Reese had a special drink to commemorate the holiday...


...they thought it was fabulous!  Our little family of 5 all enjoyed a quiet dinner...

Boef Bourguignonne

...of Boef Bourguignonne, salad and bread {Thanks Debbie}.  Then we inhaled these...

Molton Lava Cake

...Molton Lava Cakes with ice cream!  Even Owie got a bite of cake...

Mikey Likes It

...that he thought it was delicious & delightful!

On New Year's Day, we had the families over for 1 last meal {I feel like that is all I have done for 2 weeks...EAT}!

Happy NY
Our guest were greeted at the door by this diva...


...Aunt Stacey's MIL sent this to MR.  I think it is too cute on her and VERY fitting of her personality!

We had a traditional New Year's late lunch...

Boston Butt

...smoked Boston Butt, Turnip Greens {for wealth}, Black Eyed Peas {for luck and prosperity}, Turnips, Stuffed Potatoes and Cornbread.

Debbie always "hides" dimes in the peas to add an extra boost of luck!  These 2 found a dimes...

...Popsy and Uncle Topher!

We spent the rest of the day lounging and playing things like...

Bob Sled

...bob sled on the Wii {Mario and Sonic Winter Olympics Games...very fun}!

Connect 4

Connect 4 x 4


and attempting to work this puzzle we started on Christmas Day!  {We haven't made much progress from this picture take on NYE}

I also claimed after the kitchen was cleaned up on New Years Day that I was done cooking for a while!  I did however muster up the energy to make a huge pot of...


Chicken-Tasso-Andouille Sausage Gumbo.  It took a lot more stirring than I really wanted to do today...but it is made and will be fabulous on the subzero nights!

Our family hopes everyone has a safe and prosperous 2010!  We can't wait to see what is in store for us in the new year!
