New Year's Day 2011

Nate and Joshua playing Monopoly

Joshua and his good luck meal

Trey with his good luck lunch
Our first day of 2011 was quite, simple, and absolutely perfect.  We enjoyed an all-time favorite, PJ Day, and spent much of the day exploring Christmas treasures and playing games.  Joshua proved to be the next Donald Trump-like real estate mogul, smoking us all in several games of Monopoly.  We also enjoyed the traditional parades and football games of the day.

Our traditional lunchtime meal consisted of spiral glazed ham, mashed potatoes (mac & cheese for the boys), black-eyed peas, collard greens, and cornbread.  The boys decided that a single black-eyed pea for each day of 2011 seemed excessive and both hoped a good spoonful brings them all the luck they need in the new year.

We are thankful for so much, especially having Nate home for the holiday season.  We're constantly aware of the servicemembers who serve abroad today ... and the Families at home praying for their continued safety.  Happy 2011 to all!

  1. Hi. I’m an italian girl. I just opened my Blog here.
    I think I’ll write both in Italian and English because I’m learning it and I want to improve it; so if you want to leave some comments, now and then, I would be very grateful.

    Ps. Fabolous Family and Fabolous Christmas Day :)

    Thank you. Hope to hear you soon.
