TRADITIONS....

Every year since we have been married (April 22, 1967) we have started the New Year with our best man and his wife....Tony and Judy....hmmmm...we are Tony and Judy....and they are Tony and Judy....!! It is always at our house and I prepare....pork and sauerkraut, corn, mashed potatoes, applesauce, hot rolls and cheese pie !! It is quiet now as our children have started their own traditions with their friends...but boy when the kids were young - yi yi yi !!!
We play pinnacle after dinner....and the boys usually win most of the games... we have lots of fun as we are a "homemade family" and have lots of memories thru the years that we talk and tease each other about. It is a great thing growing olde with friends...lots of memories....some exciting and fun and some sad like the passing of our parents. We can joke and laugh down memory lane knowing so much about each other!! Even though we complain about our aches and pains....being together...remembering ....makes us YOUNG again....if only for alittle while. I am hoping we have 20 more years of "Tradition" ahead of us....oh I can just imagine the conversations then!!! HAPPY 2009 - it is going to be a great year!!

What a great tradition! May you have many more such happy New Years together with your husband and friends! That's what life is all about!

If not for traditions how boring things would be - events would just come and go with no special memories!
I think yours sounds just wonderful...glad you get to do it with best friends.
HAPPY NEW YEAR

We spent the day cooking. Black-eyed peas and rice,fried cabbage and cornbread. Lots of phone calls to see who hasn't had any Black-eyed peas and cabbage, and those who didn't should come get some right away!
