Almost the New Year

Jessica works noon to close (around 11:00 pm) today so we decided to start celebrating the New Year last night. She's going to try to get off early if the theater isn't busy, but you never know. Everyone is probably going to want to get off early.
Sunday morning everyone went to church as usual. I'm glad my adult children still go by choice. Tyler goes to a different church than us. It's Southern Baptist like ours, but much smaller which works better for him. There was no evening service at either church, so we played games together. Normally both Adam and Jessica both have to work Sundays after morning service, but Jessica was off  yesterday.

Just Dance Disney has turned out to have been a good choice for these guys. The most used present so far.


We took a break from the games and went out to light sparklers to remind us that Jesus is the light of the world. Thankfully Jesus shines without all the trouble we had getting the sparklers lit.

Aww. Ty's sparkler went out before I got the picture taken. My camera does not like to take  photos in the dark.




Kaleb does not look thrilled. He didn't quite get this game. 


There was a whole lot of cheating going on this game. Some not so sneaky trading of tiles!

Jessica wanted to play Apples to Apples.


The game can get a bit out of control.




Tyler went to the kitchen to get something and lost control. This is not posed.




Today we went to DQ for "Happy Hour" when drinks are half priced. Our first time to do this, but not our last.






Hope you all have a good evening and a happy New Year!

our Sonic has happy hour half off drinks- I'll have to see if our DQ does- that would be great. Looks like you had a fun time of game playing- I'm glad to see that we are not the only ones that get a little crazy during board games.

oh- and a lot of the time I read your blog on my phone and it won't let me do the word verification- so please know that I still read- even if I can't comment. (and honestly half the time I can't read it correctly on my regular computer and give up) :)

Tanya-Do you know why it doesn't show up correctly? I wonder if it's something on my end?

I hate adding word verification but I'm getting 12-20 spam a day and it's annoying. They all say something rude or shocking or act like they want my opinion on something to get me to go to their site but all the gibberish links are a give away as if I didn't already know.

Mr Saul crashed at 8:30 so there was no sparlers at this end..Happy New Year!

I sent my youngest ones to bed at 10:00. I'd had enough together time :)

I think it's my phone- but I also sometimes have to type it a few times on my computer just because I can't tell what the letters say. My phone though- freezes up- so I'm not sure if the thing that helps spell words correctly gets frustrated with me :)
