Happy New Year !

Hi  Friends, 
I hope you had a very Happy New Year! We had a wonderful start to the year, we spent it with  family on New Year's Eve . We watched the Acorn drop on our local TV station . It's an acorn around here , what does your locality do? I'm sure there are different spins on the ball drop everywhere . lol

But, before that, last Thursday we drove to" The Meadow Lights" near Benson , NC  to view the beautiful Light display .

Here is the back story of "Meadow Lights" from  a local TV station.

They also have this beautiful Carousel . I love Carousels !   8 D

 New's Year's Celebration 

 We toasted the New Year with Sparkling Apple Cider & Jones Soda 


 We played a new board game , sang some silly songs & had a ball posing with these silly photo props I printed from the internet .

I am joining :
 Blue Monday, Mellow Yellow Monday ,Ruby Tuesday 2
Our World Tuesday, Rednesday, Outdoor Wednesday 

I  will leave you with this wonderful promise from  Jesus in John 14: 27. My 13 yr.old  granddaughter has it on her New Year's Blog post , it's her favorite verse.. I  have adopted it for my New Year's verse also.

"Peace I leave with you ; my peace I give you . I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid . "

Love & Blessings,

  15. Here in GA we have the Peach Drop...although I heard some town here in GA was having an opossum drop. I didn't ask. I didn't want to know. I mean won't that give Georgians a bad name?
    You guys look like you had a fantastic New Year's eve. I could barely stay awake for anything to drop....
    Happy New Year to you and yours! Peace to you.
