Happy New Year! (a day late) I hope your new year got off to a good start. We had a really nice New Year's Eve. We didn't do anything big. We just went to dinner at one of our favorite restaurants-Cajun Yard Dog. Then we came home and watched South Carolina get beat pretty bad. That was a sad game. After that, we barely could keep our eyes open till the ball dropped. We watched it in our pajamas then went to sleep!
Yesterday we took down all of our Christmas stuff. Everything is boxed up and put away and our house looks so plain now. But I do like having all the clutter gone. We worked really hard on that all day. Steve even cleaned out the attic to make everything more organized. For dinner we had the traditional black eyed peas and collard greens.
I know it's better to make them homemade, but if you are pressed for time, I think Margaret Holmes has the BEST blackeyed peas and collard greens and I use her alot! I made a pork tenderloin and rice to go with it and it was all delicious.
John and Ashley came over for a while last night and played games with Laura and Lindy and Sean. They always have fun together.
I have been trying to get our pictures organized and put on a website that will keep them safe if my computer ever crashes or something happens to it. I am actually considering getting a new laptop soon. If you have a good one that you love, tell me what you have and what you like about it!
Tomorrow it is back to reality. I know 5:00 is going to kill me. It has been a nice break though. I've been able to really relax and enjoy being with family and friends. And I have to admit I am a little ready for routine again.
So...here we go into 2011! I am praying it is a really good year for you and for me too!
