Welcome 2021 - Willy Nilly Friday Five

 Welcome! Please Note that I have added a new statement in my welcome header. - After this past year I felt it was important to add this.

HAPPY NEW YEAR! - I'm joining Tom (The Backroads Traveller) for WILLY NILLY FRIDAY FIVE

Today's post is all about sending out the old year & ringing in the new year.
1.  As per our family tradition we had a "ton" of snack food to send the old year out with.  Our daughter had all kinds of things like, Potato Skins, Little Mini Corn Dogs, Pizza Bits, etc...and we provided a veggie tray & meat/cheese platter and cheesecake for dessert.  - We watched a movie and then took our annual New Years Eve photo (see #2)

3.Set off Fireworks and blew our party horns.
4.  Had a New Years toast & headed to bed.
5. Making Black-eyed Peas/Ham for "Good Luck" for this coming year.

My wish for everyone is a safe & Happy New Year.  Thanks for stopping by.


  1. You had a far better feast than we did, but we did have a glass of champagne though. We slept through 12 midnight. As usual.

  2. So glad you had such a fun celebration! Your family is beautiful, and the baby is beyond cute!!

  3. ...Ida, you cute new addition sure has grown! What a send off of 2020 and a welcoming of 2021. You are the second that I've read about making Black-eyed Peas and Ham for "Good Luck." We have never had any food traditions about the New Year! I hope that your 2021 with be healthy and bright.

  4. Happy New Year! Wishing you and your family all the best this year!

  5. All the food looks good. Sounds like you had a fun night. Happy New Year

  6. Such wonderful foods and fun photos! Happy New Year from all of us!

  7. love the family foto. we had ham and blackeyes for 2 days, today i will freeze the rest because i can only eat them 2 days in a row, or anything else. 2 days and i am done. i figure two days should cover the new year, but then last year we ate them 2 days and look what happened....

  8. Looks like a good time together! Happy New Year, Ida!

  9. Ida - Happy New Year to you and yours! That snack buffet is fit for royalty!

  11. I am late visiting, but I do hope the rest of the New Year is good for you. I read the post above this so done know it is not off to such a great start. But maybe things can only improve from there.
