2016 in Photos

It's New Year's Eve.

We are home again and around our house things are settling down from a quick overnight visit to my in-laws in MA.

Laundry is tumbling in the dryer.

Oldest daughter is preparing to go out to dinner with friends and then a party.

Youngest daughter and I are drinking coffee and preparing to grab some leftovers for dinner and watch a fave movie.

Husband is happily fixated on one of his fave computer games while waiting for the movie to begin.....a board game is planned for later when we are all sitting around waiting for the infamous ball to drop in NYC...and wondering why we aren't in that great city just 2 hours south of us yet happy to know we can hang out in our fuzzy socks, in the comfort of our family room and probably get a better view than if we were there.

And while in this waiting of the new year to strike....I thought I would look back on our 2016 and post some highlights in photos.
