Happy New Year!!

We wish to thank everyone who has viewed, commented and followed our blog for this year. We got started late in the year with this blog, but have enjoyed all of it so far!

New Year's Day finds us taking down the Christmas decorations inside of the house. We used to have a tradition of taking it down on New Year's Eve. We had too much to do and couldn't get it done in time!
We have all made our resolutions for the up coming year. Hopefully, we will be able to keep them!!
One of my resolutions is to paint more things for myself. I never have any of my artwork around, it is always sold or given away as gifts!

On Boxing Day (day after Christmas) we all go over to my mom's house for GUMBO! It is the highlight for my oldest son! It is a soup full of crab, shrimp and veggies. The photo with the sunflower tablecloth is my mom's dining room.

As a joke present we gave my older kids some pullback car toys. You pull them back and then they race forward. One of my german shepherds was fascinated by the toy.
