As a kid, we usually spent New Year’s Eve with our neighbors popping fireworks and then on New Year’s Day, we went to Black Eyed Pea (a restaurant chain in Texas) for an early lunch complete with black eyed peas for good luck. I’m not a huge fan of black eyed peas, but I always ate a couple – for tradition’s sake.
This year looked a little different.
At midnight on New Year’s Eve, Jeff asked me if I wanted to go upstairs and see the fireworks. I don’t even remember answering – just rolling over and going back to sleep. Jeff took pictures in case I wanted to see them later.
Here’s how we spent New Year’s Day this year –

So glad my parents made it…literally JUST in time. Good thing Selah waited until she heard their voices before she decided to come.
A new family of four celebrating the New Year. It’ll be one we’ll never forget.
