Lots of games to play, even Daddy Ryan got in on some of the fun.
Not only did we have a cake for Taylor,
she also got to go into a special booth that was loaded with prize tickets, all blown around by air. She grabbed a bunch of them.
On New Years Eve day, DIL Amber started smoking two pork shoulders on her wood, slow cooker. She started cooking them at 1 am, and every half hour or so tended the fire, put more mesquite chips on the fire and rotated the meat.
When the pork shoulders were done around supper time, she shredded one of them.
Using the shredded pork, she put them over nacho chips with spicy cheese sauce and topped them with barbecue sauce. Another one of her delicious dishes, BBQ Pork Nachos. We stuffed ourselves with them, they were so good.
We tuned in to the Times Square New Years Eve celebrations, bringing out the bubbly stuff,
as well as the party hats and noise poppers.
We watched the Times Square Ball drop and welcomed in 2012 at midnight, Eastern Time, or 9 pm Pacific Time. We put the girls to bed and we followed them shortly after. After all the fun we've been having, the bed is a big attraction. Sleeping in the New Year, we're loving the Pacific Time Zone! :c)
Tomorrow, we're pulling chocks and heading down the road a just couple miles to the Camp Rilea Military Reservation where they have a small campground. We need to dump the tanks and get more propane so we decided we might as well set up there for a couple of days while we wait for our mail. We'll spend a little more time with Ryan, Amber and the girls before we head out, we will just drive over to their house in the car to visit.
Happy New Year to all our blog friends, followers and readers. May 2012 bring you much happiness and good fortune!
