New Year's Eve

Everyone made it down here safely, thank the Lord! We have been counting down the days for this weekend and we are SO excited that everyone is finally here! I just love my family to pieces! There is something sentimental for me about ringing in the new year with family. I wouldn't be where I am today without the love and support and prayers of my family. They mean everything to me and I am so grateful they all made the trip down here to be together. We started off the evening by finishing up shelling shrimp, shucking oysters and cooking the gumbo.Peeling shrimp for the Gumbo Yum-fresh raw oysters-the benefits of living near the coast :)Brandon, Josh, and Greg-our handsome oyster shuckersLogan playing with Mack-his new best buddyAnna, Sarah, and Courtney making cookies :) Everyone eating Gumbo with Rice from Gueydan, Louisiana, and Brunswick Stew Heading out to the tailgate/pasture/fireworks/New Year's Eve extravaganza Classy New Year's tailgate party with age friendly drinks :) I love my girls!
