Happy New Year!

Fireworks seen from our front porch
The end of our holiday break is quickly approaching.
We all will be starting back to work and school on Monday. Hopefully well rested and ready to go!

Yesterday's weather was super. My thermometer was reading the low 60's by afternoon. What a change from the below freezing temperatures that we've had for the past month. I love the winter and the SNOW however yesterday really made me want spring to get here fast.
We took the kids out to shoot their new BB guns.
We all (including adults) had fun.
Remember the pink gun that Katie got for Christmas?
Well guess who took it!
Her Dad did!
Her gun seemed to be right on target. We had paper targets and balloons set up to shoot at. The balloons were a hit. We didn't have to tromp through the mud to see where you hit each time.
In the evening we played board games and then at midnight we went outside to ring in the New Year. Lots of fireworks, horns, hootin' and hollerin' going on all around our neighborhood.
Needless to say it was a late night for all and some are still sacked out on the couch.

Happy New Year to all of You!

BB guns were a big favorite of mine as a kid. Great idea with the balloons. Happy New Year!
