New Year's Eve Day

What a wonderful day it was.  We took a ride to Island Beach State Park in hope to find a snow owl.  Well, no such a luck, but it was still nice.  We ended the day with dinner at the Fortune Buffet.

I am comparing
2005 Chrysler 300C
Sometimes things are mind-boggling....especially when you get old.  So we bought the new car yesterday and now we are trying to remember when we had the last Chrysler.  When this happens, I always look at my pictures which are neatly stored in folders by year and then month. 
We bought the prior Chrysler 2005.  I loved the car and then, when we bought the 5th wheel in 2008, we traded it in for the 2500 Dodge Ram truck that pulled our 5th wheel.
Here is a November 2005 picture of the car and our van camper.  We took the van camper around the whole country in 2005 and 2006.  It was awesome.  Then we traded in the car for the truck, sold the van camper and got our first 5th wheel.

New car

We looked two day for the right car and finally found one that had the right price.  It is a Chrysler 300.  We had one in 2006 and loved it.

Christmas Eve

Like every year for many years now, we celebrated Christmas Eve over Tammy's house in a German tradition.  On Christmas day, the kids visit the in-laws and this way no-one's feelings are hurt.  I like it this way.  Tammy cooked a delicious ham dinner with all the works.  Anna baked a cake and of course the famous cookies were on the table too.

Grounds for Sculpture

Life goes on.  We went to take our friends from Germany to see our favorite place: "Grounds for Sculpture" in Hamilton NJ.
Rudi was like a kid in a toy store.  It truly is an amazing place.

Monday was a pretty bad day for us.  We had company from Germany (Rudi & Katrin) and we wanted to drive to the outlets in Tinton Falls.  Well, it all went a different way.....we were in Brick on Hooper Avenue to first do some other business and got involved into an accident.  Everyone was fine, except the truck, which was pretty much damaged and I got quite a few bruises.  Katrin, Rudi and Peter were OK.  We went to get a rental and my computer was fixed at the place in the Hooper/Rt. 37 U-turn.

It's been a while....

I can't post anything when nothing is going on.  We are getting ready for the trip.  Last minute stuff like Drs appointments, hair cuts, Kia's grooming, and, and, and....
Christ will be here before we know it. 
Yesterday was Ava's Christmas concert.  It was very nice.  It's Ava's last concert in Elementary school.  Next year she'll be in middle school.
