Wow, what a year 2010 has been! We wrapped up the year quite nicely with our kids who I have to keep reminding myself are not so little anymore. We watched movies, made lots of delicious food, and played lots of Nintendo Wii together. I have had the Wii since October and nobody else seemed all that interested in it but me until now. With everybody home at the same time we have had lots of fun with it. The 11th grade son had his Wisdom Teeth out a few days before Christmas and has had a rough week healing but is now finally feeling better and looks so much better. His sister created a Mii which is a Wii character for playing the games and gave him a big round face and named him “Chip” for Chipmunk. Sounds like a mean thing to do but he laughed and we all got a kick out of it.
The 2nd year college student daughter had a ball at the Debutante Ball she attended a few nights ago. I have yet to see any photos from that night but she said it was a very fun evening. She said it was kind of like going to a Wedding and The Prom at the same time. I’ll bet there will be photos in the Sunday newspaper tomorrow. She left yesterday to ring in the New Year with her friends in Chapel Hill.
We haven’t quite yet adopted the Southern tradition of eating black-eyed peas and collard greens to bring good luck in the new year although I am a fan of both. How about you? Do you have any traditions that you follow for ringing in the New Year? Actually, we have no tradition in this area at all. Today we will celebrate by going out to breakfast and I am planning to make a pot of French Onion Soup and watch some football. That’s it. Calm and relaxing. Just the way we like it!
I am looking forward to a Happy, Healthy, and Prosperous New Year and I wish the very same for you!
Happy New Year!
