to spend New Year's Eve out in the desert
visiting, playing, grilling, eating, four-wheeling, and shooting.
A tradition that my kids and I have gladly adopted!
The kids run and roam freely
The moms and nannas play with the babies and visit
|Have you ever seen such a big skillet???|
The men grill
Mmmmmm, the food sure is good!
|Nothin' better than a Hebrew National dog roasted over mesquite!|
|My granddaughter Laney was tired,|
so I snuggled two camp chairs together to make her a "Rest Nest"
Papa (Cowboy) took every kid on a ride around the 'mountain' at least once.
|I don't know who these boys are, but they sure were enjoying our 4-wheelers!|
My daughter Maddie (in the red striped jacket below) decided to build her own fire nearby.
It didn't take long for the other kids to show up and play near her fire.
Hmmmm, there are mostly boys here.
Maybe she's on to something?
|Uh, oh, someone forgot to tell this guy to not dance IN the fire! |
He blistered up his ankle pretty good after catching his pants & sock on fire.
I think he's okay now.
Oh yeah, shooting...........there was plenty of that too!
|Trace giving Laney a piggy back|
|Bella LOVES the desert too!|
|Happy New Year!|
|Our son Kyle with his babygirl Makenna. They are visiting from Texas.|
(Kyle already looks like a Texan!)
|Ohhhh, one of my favorite parts, roasting marshmallows for smores!|
See the chocolate & graham crackers next to the fire? Yummmmmy!
|Laney enjoying s'mores with her Nana. :)|
|Our little friend Connor just so happened to be celebrating his 8th birthday.|
We had joined his family earlier in the day for his wonderful baptism.
Can you believe this amazing barrel cactus cake that his mom & grammy made?
|I think those cactus needles are made of chinese noodles! Clever!!|
We pray your family also enjoyed a fun and safe Eve
and that you are blessed with a prosperous and
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
What are YOUR New Years Eve traditions?
