We celebrated the start of 2009 with our friends Bill and Jackie just like last year. And we had a blast!
We got the kids together and went bowling at Chippewa. Well, the kids call it bowling. We adults call it picking up a heavy ball, throwing it down the lane and praying that it stays out of the gutter!
This year we had a couple of additions to the group. Hannah, Cody's girlfriend and Kelli, Ben's girlfriend came along and added a little bit of beauty to the group!
Afterwards we came back to the house to consume way too much food and act as chaperone's for the kiddos. We stayed in the kitchen playing cribbage, a game I'm not very good at. Poor Bill drew me as a partner! We became determined to keep playing until we won a game against Mark and Jackie. I'm embarrassed to say that it took until 2:30 am for that to happen! Thank God Bill is a patient man!
It was a great way to start the New Year. The end of 2008 brought a few challenges and changes for me (hence my absence from the blogging world) and I'm looking forward to a new year. I've got my feet back under me and am looking forward, not back
Love and Happiness to you all.
