Happy New Year!

Do you stay up until midnight on New Years Eve? 

Most years I don't even try, but this year I thought I would at least give it a shot. I'm more than happy to put 2019 in the past. (I did and didn't make it - I dozed on and off but didn't actually go to bed until after midnight)

2019 was not the best year. There was a lot that went on - some of it I've shared here - some not.

It wasn't all bad though. 

Hubby and I celebrated 40 years in March but we took our 'anniversary trip' to New York in May. Baby boy has lived there for 10 years and this was our first trip. We did and saw a lot but there is more to see and I hope we don't have to wait another 10 years to go again. 

In August, my sister and I went to Las Vegas for a few days. We went to see Donny and Marie before they closed their Las Vegas show. It was a fun trip and again, lots more to see than we could fit into a few days. I would go again - but not sure I would go in August again!

 November brought us a wedding!

These guys here, they are my everything. I don't get them all together at the same time very often but when I do, I'm a happy girl.

We clean up pretty good!

Brittany has been part of our family for a couple of years but it's 'official' now. I've never seen Brian as happy as he has been since he met Brittany and that makes this momma very happy.

Baby boy made two unplanned trips to Texas this year. While both trips were not for fun, we did enjoy having him here and he was a lot of help while he was here. He finished staining the fence for us when he was here in December. 

We rewarded him for a job well done with a shaved ice treat. 

Between our trip to NYC and his trips to Texas, we saw more of him in 2019 than we have since he moved to NYC.

I hope 2020 proves to have more of the good/fun stuff. We don't have any big plans for this year - calm and uneventful would be just fine. Spending as much time as possible with family and friends - that's all we really need.

Here's to a blessed 2020!

Wishing you a more peaceful New Year, Tina! I did make it to midnight and watched the ball drop in Times Square.

Happy New Year, Tina! Oh, you have a lovely family - those boys are all so handsome. I love to sit up late at night so staying up til the New Year rolled in wasn't hard for me. But just let me sleep in in the morning! :) Thank you for your sweet visits to my blog and here's to blogging with you in 2020.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)
