Welcome 2017

Well another NEW YEAR has arrived.  Sharing some photos from last night with you all.

First up the FOOD!

We fix up all kinds of snack foods:  Wings, Meatballs, Meats, Cheeses, Veggies, Crackers eat during the evening.

For dessert it was Brownies with Vanilla Ice Creams, Chocolate Sauce, Nuts & Whipped Cream!  Yummy!!!

 One of our New Year's Photos - We are a goofy bunch!

 The fireworks - Note the dry ground....Why?...............................................

Well about 8:30 this morning this is what started....We've got about 2 inches already.  It stopped for awhile but it's coming down again.  What a way to start the year. 

Hope you all had a great start to your New Year!

  14. O, what a SNOW! I wish you a Happy New Year. Great photos.

  15. Scrolled through your humorous and cheerful December posts. Wishing you a belated best for this New Year! My blogging suffered as well being there for 7 grandkids, and one big "kid" coming over from Holland for two weeks. But it helped that ALL SEASONS was open the whole week, for the last two weeks. Hope you knew about that option!
    Anyways, with new energy, hope to see you this next week at this address with one of your lovely photos :) (a direct link)

  16. Wow! Send it here! We are suppose to get some tonight!
