Mother at home always had a large cake and a huge breakfast ready for us on the first of every January. We had all kinds of family and friends that would pile into the house around nine or ten in the morning. All day there would be food and many desserts.
Her mantra was, start the day with people you love, and eat, laugh, have something sweet to make the whole year sweet, and of course reminisce! New Year’s eve was never a big deal. She said we had to welcome the day with these things when the sun is shining. Not the middle of the night! Made a lot of sense to me. I have followed that tradition here.
So every 1st of January, the family comes over for brunch or regular lunch and they just stay and laugh and visit with each other for hours. I did the same yesterday. Here are some photos of yesterday.
Davis loves to drape his leg over my knees.
Noah is so tall. We took a picture standing together, I looked like a cretin next to him!
Bought a cake, but made the strawberry/cream cheese pies. Made some fresh squeezed orange juice which was so delicious!
And we all had a wonderful time. Hope all of you had a great day.
I wish for all of you a year filled with Happiness, Peace, Love, Good Health and Laughter. I pray that the wars will be a thing of the past, and that the Syrian refugees (the innocent children) will find homes and hearths to find respite and love.
