Happy New Year!!

Wishing each one of you a great 2016!

May it bring realization of dreams, good health, and lots of happiness!
We had our Christmas here in home on the 25th. The church celebrations were on the 24th.
We headed to Iowa on the 27th to have Christmas with his extended family. That house was very noisy because now our nieces and nephews have their young children. They scream playing and scream crying about one thing or another. It was however fun and very relaxing to be there with them. I made a few casseroles and took them frozen for it is over 8 hrs trip. Our daughter and her husband who live in India were unable to came for Christmas. They took vacation in the US in the Summer. For Christmas they headed to Darjeeling and other places that I have no idea at the moment how to write the names. The son went back to law school at the same time we left on Friday.
The older cousins played games like they always do at grandmothers house. There was a total of 22 people in that house including the little kids that do not appear in these photos.

TV time and a slice of pumpkin pie. We do not like whipped cream on it.
The quietness and complete stillness of this town is just great! (our town)

Pumpkin pie, sweet potato cranberry dish, scalloped corn, 3 bean dish and carrot casserole. I made just turkey breast this year along with cranberry sauce. My son bought the Panettone which is something we traditionally have for Christmas at our house. I don't have a photo of it here since I was apparently so hungry and forgot to take a few more photos.

We have snow and low temps however Spring will be here soon!

May you have a wonderful year in 2016!!  XOXO!!
