large New Year's party...

We rang in the New Year at our house in Brighton. Grammie came for a visit on New Year's Eve to play with the kids and their new toys from Santa. They really enjoyed playing their Light Brights. Yes, Light Brights are back and better than before. I remember playing with the 1980s version which was almost as large as a tube TV. The newer version is more like playing on a flat screen computer. They have still provided hours of entertainment for the kids.

On New Year's Eve night we enjoyed a visit from Mimi, neighborhood fireworks (compliments of the Freeman's), music from DJ Skipper, and dinner and cupcakes. The kids thought we had a large party and they were in bed by 9:30 at the latest. Skipper and I did not stay up to ring in the New Year either. After all, it was still duck season and duck hunters needs their rest!

The First Of Many...

I have wanted my own blog for a few months now. I have been so inspired by the blogs of friends that I have met in Tipton Co. You guys really know how to capture the moment! I have resisted thinking I don't have time to keep it current. After all, I went through the scrapbooking phase a few years ago and that was a flop. I have decided I am going to give it a try though. I do better with technology anyway - who needs all of that scrapbook paper, cutters, stickers, glue, layouts, etc., etc., etc. for the kids and dog to mess up! I do much better dragging and dropping!
