Happy New Year!

My New Years this year was low key and a lot of fun.
I had a few friends over for some Navajo tacos. We should have used a timer so Julie could be in the picture too.

Katherine brought a lot of her hats so we could add a little more fun to the evening.
After dinner, we headed upstairs for some ping pong. Here's Kim posing with the "guardians." We put these guys by the stairs to keep ping pong balls from going down.
Here are Katherine and Julie #2 getting warmed up. We were going to do another tournament, but ended up just playing around the world.
After ping pong, we were ready for round 2 with the fry bread. We put honey on it this time and it was quite tasty.
I was excited to have Jessica and Jason come for a short visit. They played ping pong with us and visited for a while.
We got a picture of the girls who knew Jess when she lived here.
I thought this was a funny picture. I had a marker out so we could write our names on our cups so they wouldn't get mixed up. Julie's hilarious!
Jess & Jason left and we watched a movie. Julie #2 had to leave because she was headed back to Idaho the next day. The rest of us had a little slumber party.
I made some yummy breakfast on Friday morning. These are aebleskivers. Susannah gave me the pan for Christmas. We made them Christmas morning, but I had to try it out again. They were pretty good!
I only had enough buttermilk to make 3/4 of a batch so I made some pancakes too. It all tasted really good!
This could actually be another post, but I thought I'd stick it on here. After the girls left my house after breakfast, I headed over to the Tomball area to pick up my new bike that Adam found for me on Craigslist. I LOVE it! On Saturday, Katherine, Julie, and I got our bikes and headed downtown for a ride. It was a lot of fun.
We stopped by Minute Maid park for Katherine to jump around for a bit. She did really well!
Julie and I wanted to see how steadily we could ride. We stayed right next to each other for about a block before we had to stop at a light. It was a fun time all around.

Are you sure you don't want to move to Utah? You sure know how to stir things up. Sounds fun!

I will not concur on it. I think polite post. Expressly the title attracted me to read the whole story.

We LOVE ableskivers! We haven't had them for about a year though because I'm so severly overweight, but otherwise...YUM, drizzled in buttermilk syrup..Mmmm, I hate being fat!
