Happy 2020

Happy New Years!!!

It is customary for me to go to my sisters house to spend New Years with her family! 


It won't be long until the kid's want to go spend it with their friends so I am in until the time comes when it is just my sister and her husband - at that time I will leave them alone to have a romantic New Year's! HA HA!

It must look like a lot of fun when I post every year because my brother in law's mother decided to come join us this year. I was off my game again for this holiday and hardly took any pictures. I will never let this happen again.

Throughout the evening we decorated gingerbread houses and painted a nativity set.

We drank non-alcoholic bubbly with frozen grapes and had silly string fights in the front yard.

Then at midnight...

  1. we ran outside and beat on pots and pans
  2. shot off a popper in the front yard
  3. screamed Happy New Year
  4. ate a bite of lucky Pittsburgh pretzel
  5. shook our change in our pockets
  6. jumped a chair. 
It is bound to be a good year!!!!

Here are the few pictures I took...







HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!

No resolutions here!!!

Did you enjoy New Years? Do you stay in or go out? Do you make resolutions? If yes, are you still doing it?

  1. Great fun by the sound of it. Very quiet here. Across the road for dinner and then stood on the street at midnight to see city fireworks.

  2. It sounds like you had a wonderful time! I haven't heard of a lot of your traditions. We don't shake the change in our pockets, we put money outside in a bush before midnight and bring it in after. I don't know how our neighbors would take the pots and pans. lol Anyway...we usually get together with some friends, but I had to work this year so for the first time since I was a kid I didn't even stay up to see the new year in.

    1. I have never heard of the change in the bushes thing. All the things we do are either Pittsburgh or Polish - I am not sure which! HA! But as blessed as I feel, they must be working, right?? Maybe I will use yours too and add change in the bush next year - cant hurt!!! HA HA!!! Have a a fantastic New Year Stacy!!!!

  4. Sounds like a great time!! I have never heard of doing those traditions!! My sister's birthday is NYE so we usually have a little family gathering - this year, Chinese food & cupcakes, and played boards games at my house with my fam and my sister's hubby's parents. My mom was under the weather and slept all evening in the living room while we played in the dining room lol. We watched the ball drop at midnight on TV and then everyone went home! It was a fun evening :)

  12. It looks like you had a fabulous time! Ours was quiet with an early dinner (around 4:15) at a local restaurant for their prime rib special (we were home before 5:30), stitching and reading off and on for me, channel surfing for the hubby, watched the ball drop in Times Square, toasted in the New Year with sparkling grape juice, and went to bed.

    No resolutions made, but did make some loose goals for the year!
