|"Eat poor that day, eat rich the rest of the year. Rice for riches and peas for peace."|
- Southern saying on eating a dish of Hoppin' John on New Year's Day.
New Year's Day was quiet. We had a nice dinner and relaxed.
|We went to Jo Jo's for lunch, our favorite diner/hot dog place.|
We had all been under the weather during the week when James had his birthday and we were not able to go to the mall and Days of Knights as James wanted for his birthday, so we went the weekend following his birthday. Hope went with us.

On Sunday, we went to my sister-in-law's (Brenda's) for our Christmas with her.
It was a lovely day of celebrating, family and fun.
We also celebrated James' birthday (again) with Brenda.
On Twelfth Night, we had a little party with Hope and Eddie. We opened Christmas crackers, searched for the pickle ornament on the tree (and the one who found it -this year it was James -got a small gift), played games and ate a Christmas cake in which a bean was baked.
On Epiphany, we took down the Christmas decorations.
Thursday night we had a movie night with our homeschool group. We watched The Maltese Falcon because it is mentioned in the play we are putting on in May.
Next week we will be starting back to our school work.
How was your week?
