How we Rang in 2011

We had an amazing 3 full days to spend with each other.  Something so rare.  (We can’t even get a half day without plans very often.) 

We spent New Years eve finding homes for all our new things we got for Christmas and doing a full Grocery trip.  Sam’s and Wal-Mart.  (My idea of a good time.  Really!) We spent the evening with some friends we hardly ever see anymore.  Mike & Leslee and their kids.  We cooked, chatted and got all caught up.   No matter what the occasion or day, we don’t party after 9:00 anymore and thankfully Mike and Leslee don’t either.

Joshua Promised me he would stay up and ring in the new year with me this year.  We did!  The best way I can think of.  In Bed!  Watching all the New Year stuff on TV.

New Years day was started also, the best way I can think of.  With donuts:

Homemade with powdered sugar icing/glaze.  Wonderful.  Simply Wonderful!

Before we could even get the donuts eaten Joshua already had out tamale making stuff.  We thought we would try some since we can’t find anyone to make us any!  They were amazing.  He made pork for him and chicken for me.  Mine had only the good parts of chicken, cilantro and green chilies!  They were amazing and did not take near the time we thought.

He also made homemade salsa to go with them!  So Yummy!  I have never in my life had tamales this good!  Good job Hunny!


The girls spent the afternoon playing dress-up

That evening we went to Granny’s to see my cousins from Georgia.  As always it’s a blast to get together with them!

So Cute to see him chatting with Georgia Claire. 


It was not glamorous or fancy, but I think we gave 2011 a pretty good start!



  1. Great photos! You are TRULY gifted! I love the second one of the doughnuts and the ones of Josh making the tamales. They are artful and tell a story at the same time. Love it!
