We rang in the New Year with a big party at the homes of the Ponderosa Princesses.
Shopping Cart Racing
And Taste Testing--Is it Coke or store brand cola?After a few games of Sequence, it was bedtime for babies and we took the party to another location where 6 year olds can stay up until the new year!
The first day of the year began with a New Year's Day lunch with all the foods that are suppose to bring you good luck. There was hog jowl, cabbage and black eyed peas.
Then. . . the squirrels returned! They get in between the stories of the house and into the laundry room which is under the stairway. We tried glue traps with little luck. They began hiding hickory nuts in the dirty laundry, so we tried a live trap.
The last week of January I spent some time with the grand kids doing lots of playing and book reading and running around. Parker even got a day off from school while I was there because a tornado the night before had caused power outages. Ponderosa Princess, Stephanie and I took The Babies to the Discovery House children's museum in Murfreesboro. They enjoyed it and wore their little selves right out, playing in the store, climbing, digging, driving the firetruck, riding the rocking toys, and watching the turtles and ducks!
