Welcoming 2017 at a Friend's House

Our plan was to  stay at home and wait for the ball drop during the new year's but a family friend invited us over to their new house  so we could ring the new year together.  It was a fun night for all of us.  
We had some  delicious foods to eat while catching up and waiting for the ball to drop.
We didn't even  watch the performances of  celebrities because we were busy talking to each other.  It 's been a while since we  got together so there are so much to catch onto.
Our children had so much fun playing with each other.
Thabnks Marie and Steve for  opening your home to us, it was a night to remember  for sure.  One of those moments we shared with you that we will treasure forever.
We love  the Mascio's, they are the most kind-hearted, and down-to-earth people you will ever meet.  Despit their status in life, they keep their feet on the  ground.  I admired  and respect them for that.  
We didn't   come home until after two in the morning.  We took some photos together before we  left.
While having a blast at their home, my mind kept thinking of my Mom because I wasn't able to call her and talked to her.  There's still no electricity  when my siter  visited  her.  When she came back to the city, I learned that she was sick and  very weak.  It's so jhard when you are so far away from your love ones.  I feel helpless.  I asked my other sister to go home and  take care of our Mother for a while and bring her to the hospital.
We started our new  year with friends and it was  wonderful.  We  saw each other again  at the  mass in the morning.  We also  visited my  father-in-law  after attending the Sunday service at Gables Care Center  in Hopedale Ohio.

  4. Looks like a lot of fun. We did an early New Year's Celebration, and then went home, watched a movie and rang the new year in together with all of us sleeping in the same room. It's kind of been our tradition for a few years now.

  15. It sounds like you had a great night. We didn't stay up this year because we were tired and had to get up for church the next morning. We ended up moving over the holiday weekend.

  16. Sounds like a fun New Year, but so sorry about your mom. It is hard to be far away from family. I'm only a few states away and it's super tough. I can't imagine. Sending hugs.
