As 2009 winds down, I'm reflecting back on the past year, and looking forward to the next one. I guess I'm pretty lucky because nothing stands out as being sad, bad or even disappointing. I have great friends, a loving family, we're all happy and healthy, so no complaints.
We even had a white Christmas, which hardly ever happens here in Maryland. The boys went out and made this way cute snowman. I could tell it was a snow MAN because he had a mustache.
My redneck boys with their new friend.
and Forrest hugging his very best friend, Casey. He hadn't seen his dog for 6 months, and their reunion was happy indeed.
Who knew that we'd have a new family tradition? Traditions have to start sometime, so Christmas 2009 was the begnning of .... car bombs!
For those of you don't know what a car bomb is, it's a shot glass full of Bailey's Irish Cream with Jameson Irish whiskey floating on top, that is then dropped into the bottom of a filled glass of Guiness Irish stout. (the entire shot glass, not just the liquid) One has to drink it down before the Guiness starts to curdle, which is pretty damn fast! It's said to be named after the car bombings of the IRA. Not so great to celebrate that, but the concept of all that Irish goodness makes it yummy.
all my boys plus the girl that could handle it, Deidre.
Happy New Year from all of us at Dancing Leaf Farm!!!!
