Our family had a great New Year's Eve. We started the night of with Some Micky D's. I had cooked so much in the last 2 weeks, that I just told everyone that I was taking a break! For I would be soon cooking AGAIN, New Year's Day. Everyone agreed on some eating out, so Jerry so kindly got McDonald's for us.
After eating, We watched Our LSU Tigers pull out a GREAT and WELL DESERVED victory in the Chick-fil-a, eat more chick in Bowl! We are so proud of them Tigers! We enjoyed the game so much. Bailee at one point had to leave the living room because I was yelling so loud, sorry Bailee you know how Momma loves her Tigers!!
Jerry and Bailee chose a wonder variety of fireworks. When they got home them, we had to pull everyone out and look at them. Caiden was so excited, and he was deciding on with one to do first!
Great job Tigers!!
We had to wait till after the game to pop all the fireworks. We invited the Knight family over to pop firecrackers. They also brought with them lots of fireworks!
Caiden and Bo lit most of them, the girls were so cold, and I thought my hands were going to freeze off!
Leslie and I were having a great time making fun of Jerry and Larry!
Isn't that so pretty!! I love fireworks! Jerry and I decided to wait and do fireworks for New Years Eve instead of Christmas, and I am glad we waited, it was so much more exciting!
The men, looking all tough!
Caiden and his best buddy Bo, They were really having fun! I was jealous of Bo, He had a flashlight attached to his head, and he was lighting them fireworks with no problem!
Megan, Emily, and Bailee
The day after...thanks to my Bailee for picking up the BIG mess!! I love you and thank you for being such a BIG help, your kindness does not go unnoticed!
New Year Day, was a great one, I woke up very early to start cooking my New Years Day Dinner. I put on a ham to bake, and started cooking black eyed peas. Peas take forever to cook, and Jerry likes his peas well-done, LOL! Everyone got up a little later, and we all wished everyone a happy new year, and promised each other that we would all be kind to one another, mainly Caiden and Bailee! This was the beginning to a new year, and a new time, so lets make a special effort to say at least one kind word of sisterly/brotherly love! That lasted till maybe 4pm, but at least they tried!!
How often do you see a man in the kitchen?! Well, Jerry is great about using the electric knife! He is always the one who cuts and carves the game, I mean,the main course! HA HA! Seriously, he does help me out a lot!He often asks "can I do anything?!" but he knows how I am in the kitchen, I want to do it all myself, thanks Jerry for being so considerate, but knowing you are glad when I say " I got it, go play games with Caiden." I love seeing the look of RELIEF on his face!!
I love watching them together. They were lighting the firecrackers and then throwing them into the water to see how far water would go up into the air.
