A Great New Years Day

Well we had a wonderful New Years day with family. Every year we have a brunch here at our house, usually family sometimes a few friends (last year was 32 people). It was really small this year no one from my side could make it and I forgot to send out and invite/evite so didn't invite many friend (3 to be exact) because I figured many had probably made plans already so did not want anyone to feel any guilt. I cooked from tuesday - Thursday afternoon (I'll post my menu at the bottom). On Wednesday night I cooked from 5pm until 5:30 am. I was so darned tired. Yes there was a reason for that, if Bobby's Mom comes to our house she want to eat within an hour of getting there I guess so she can hurry and leave...LOL, but when we go to her house or any other family members house we have to wait 2 hours usually. So, I was trying to make sure I had as many dishes done as possibe so I could just heat them up the next day. That worked out great. We ate exactly 2 hours after everyone arrived, and yes after being there for 55minutes his Mom asked when are we eating UGH!

The kids all had a ton of fun and even played with the dogs (all the kids in Bobby's family are always afraid of our dogs. even when we had the shelties they were afraid of them too) But they took them on a hike with Bobby and his Dad and bro Dennis. They played and were so Loud I was laughing so hard.

Hope you all have a great New Year and all everyones wishes come true (mine of winning the lottery has to come true with 8 days...HA)
