New Year’s Eve 2019

Buffalo Chicken Meatballs

Photo-A-Day 2.0 #00365

As we hit the last day of the year for 2019 I look back at taking photos every day once again. I had done this for 14 years and then missed a day. I stopped for almost half a year and then decided to start back up again. This has been my 2.0 version of the project and here I am at the end of a year and for some reason my numbering is showing 364 and not 365. My photo folder on Google photos also shows 364 for the 2019 Photo-A-Day album. I have a feeling that there is was some point in the numbering where I messed up. So I’ll have to go back and try and fix. Sometime this year.

* UPDATE * – I found it, it was only a few days ago. So I didn’t have to change much.

Today we visited with friends and celebrated the holiday early. We were home before 10pm so the kids could get sleep. Allison and I got to bed before midnight, too. That was fine with me. Whether or not we saw the ball drop didn’t matter since there would be a whole new year come the morning.

Allison made Buffalo Chicken Meatballs for the party and they were very good, everyone enjoyed them. We also brought over some cookies and we enjoyed many wonderful things to eat including empanadas. It was just good to spend time with friends. The kids enjoyed playing with the other kids and Eva had lots to talk about with fellow fans of Percy Jackson and Harry Potter. Andrew got to run around with the boys and eat lots of fun things.

Bonus Day on The Cape

Little Tree Set Up

I’ve been making sure to take the day after Thanksgiving off so that we can stay on the Cape longer. It makes for an easier transition back to work after the holiday and gives us a nice relaxing day on Cape cod to spend with my parents.

We had a nice big breakfast and a relaxing morning. The kids helped Mem and Grandfather put up the small Christmas Tree in the living room. Then I helped dad bring in the larger tree for the sun-porch. Then he and Andrew set it up and decorated it.

In the afternoon we took a ride into town to check out the shops and to get out of the house. We had to break up the day a bit and change up the scenery. We checked out some of the shops along main street in Falmouth. Eva likes a surf and skate shop there. Not exactly sure the draw for her but she enjoys it. We also looked at the book store and my parents got Andrew a Mad Libs book. he could not wait to do a Mad Libs with everyone. He loves how silly they are.

We had a nice dinner and then settled in to watch another Christmas movie. this time we watched Klaus on Netflix. It was a cute movie. I had heard it was good from Andrew an Allison. they had already seen it but liked it enough to watch again. It was a different sort of story but a good one.
