Happy New Year!

Bedroom slippers and PJ's on.

It's 7:45 p.m.

Happy New Year!

Happy 50 Years Friends!

It's so rare to know people who have been married for 50 years.

In recent years we have, through our business, become friends with Thomas and Doris.

They celebrated 50 years December 16. Last night we were invited to a celebration for them.

The invitation was adorable. I love an old wedding picture. So classy!

 They stopped on the way to their honeymoon and stayed at the TROT MOTEL!
This was a post card she sent her mom from there!
They still had it after all these years!

What a sweet night celebrating sweet people.
They had couples stand up showing how long they had been married. 
There were two couples there that had been married for 61 years!!!!!
So nice to see that marriages DO last.....and they get sweeter with time.
Congrats Thomas and Doris.
Thank you for being an example to so many.
May God bless you with many more wonderful years together.

Coconut Cookie Balls

Last night we had our Beach Buddy Christmas meal. It's always so much fun to get together as couples. We don't do it often (as couples) and I love it! You know, it's difficult to have *couple* friends. The husbands of friends are not always compatible just because their wives are friends. We always have lots of fun together and last night did not disappoint. I forgot to take a picture. UGH. But, here is last year's picture.

Dee (in the middle) brought dessert.

Oh. My. Word.

These are called Coconut Cookie Balls.

The recipe is from Kraft.....and it's even better than it sounds.

Cream Cheese. Coconut. Golden Oreo cookies. White Chocolate.

That's it.


I posted the link above.

Try it. You'll like it.

Today. Random.

Today at work I was hungry. 

I found this in a drawer.

29 fat grams. 


I ate the whole thing.

Then, I had visitors:

I forgot all about the fat grams.

Happy Birthday Jesus!

Christmas is different every year these days. It use to always be the same. People keep having babies, and inlaws keep wanting to see them....funny how that happens.:) So, we were missing a few kids last night.

Mom and Dad
Yeh, I'm 54 and these are my PARENTS!

My brother brings the kids dogs from P*t Smart. They get bigger and bigger every year. 

The dogs AND the kids!

 The girls listened to their mommy play the piano.....

Tomorrow nephew J turns FOUR....

and yesterday his sister P, turned TWO!

All of this for Jesus.

Happy Birthday Jesus!

Just a few *snippets* of what went down....

I held the twins....

She held the twins:

 so did she............

They were pretty much the center of attention.....

except for a few other things: this baby boy who should be a post of his own this Christmas with his bump ups and mall escapades.....

....and these girls who wanted to *ride* the neighbor's deer when we went on a walk!

 We took our pajama picture....

  ....and realized how BIG the double jogging stroller was.

We had brunch with Santa.
 SOME were HAPPY....

 Some were NOT!

 SHE won *Pretty Pretty Princess*....her new game....

 ....and played it with JiJi.

 It has been a fun, chaotic Christmas......and Santa hasn't even come yet.

 Peace on earth.....and at Nonny and Poppy's house too, please!! :)
