Euchre Tournament

We had a Euchre party this past weekend. It was great getting together with some friends we haven't seen in a while. I think this may be the beginning of a new tradition. Except next time we'll either start earlier or not do as many rounds! I don't think I've ever played cards for over 6 hours before!

Go Green in Spring!

This year we have a green house! I'm going to try planting some vegetables before the ground thaws out. I bought a book on greenhouses and have ordered my seed catalogs. But first I need to get organized. I have cleaned out the greenhouse but have a long way to go!

Tropical Tiki Bar

Here are some pics of the Tropical Tiki Bar in our basement. It's an ongoing project and has been sooo much fun.Byron finished the bar this weekend and we love it. I ordered some thatch roofing. We'll be adding that soon. More pics to come!

A huge Thanks to April and Ancil for the old shutters from their house. You guys need to get over here and help us break this thing in! And Judy, my new best friend, the bar wouldn't be complete without my Kenny picture. YEE HAW! I'm telling you the guy can't keep his eyes off of me!

Happy New Year!

We stayed home for New Year's Eve this year. We didn't want to be out on the road with all the crazies. Byron made his famous homemade pizzas and we watched the ball drop with our Latin Lovers (a new drink recipe).

My New Years Resolution this year is to try a new recipe every week for 2009. I think this will be a resolution I can keep : )
