New Years Eve Day

It was a gorgeous (but cold) day today and we decided to take a ride.  I fist wanted to go to Island Beach S.P., but figured that’s it’s even colder there so we went to Smithville instead and followed up with Edwin B. Forsythe park.  It was a great day!

Happy New Year everyone!

December sun

Debby, Barbara and I spent some time at the Island Height’s boardwalk and the weather couldn’t have been more beautiful.  I didn’t find a lot of subjects today.  Gotta change photo shoot locations. LOL

Ginny’s house

We can’t stop partying!  Christmas day and everyone alone?  No way!  Ginny had us all over and we were having a real great time.  Delicious snacks from dips to cakes……and the tiramisu….to die for!  Never mind the pretty wreath cake!  We never got a chance to even eat it, because there was so much food!

Christmas Eve 2014

Thank you Tammy for once again hosting Christmas Eve.  As always it was great and it was fun watching the kids opening their presents.  We had Chinese food for dinner and Black Forest Cherry Cake and assorted home made cookies for dessert.

Anna’s concert

What a great concert it was!  It was beautiful and VERY professional.  I truly enjoyed it.  Too bad that Peter was sick and he didn’t feel like going.

Elisabeth’s 7th Birthday

Our little baby granddaughter is 7!!!  She had a great birthday party.  11 girls making and decorating ginger bread houses, but not before they designed their own little aprons to wear for the occasion.  Pizza and cup cakes and a yummy punch.  It truly was fun for everyone.

Bunco

Had a nice time with the girls substituting at Bunco over Dee’s house.  We had a grab bag and lots of food.  It was great but…. I have such a terrible cold and I was miserable.  I haven’t had a cold like this in a long time.

Just a little update….

Nothing much exciting happened.  We are ready for Christmas and I am a little sad that we are staying home this winter. 

Anna joined the swim team at her high school and she is really enjoying it.

Ava has a few digestive problems and the Drs. ordered a colonoscopy as well as an endoscopy.  We are waiting for the results.  Poor Ava, while she was under, the hose they used to look inside the colon was causing some pretty bad bleeding and they kept her over night for observation.  The procedure was done at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, so she was in good hands.

Tree’s up!

Because we are staying home this winter, we decided it is time again to get the tree from the attic and decorate it.  It does look so pretty and gives a nice atmosphere.  I also a fresh little Elf living with us.  I think that she arrived at the wrong house, because there aren’t any kids around in our senior village, but I think it’s the cutest thing, despite all the mischief it gets into.

Anna’s 1st High School Swim Meet

Today was Anna’s first swim meet.  The opposite team was Toms River East.  Central was great!  They have some awesome swimmers.  Anna was doing good too.  Love going there….but those bleachers…Peter and my backs don’t handle them very well.
