Happy New Year!

Well it's been quite a nice New Year's celebration here.

The house is rather full with both Mother-in-law and sister-in-law in residence.

This makes for always fun family dynamics, especially as sister in law has issues, heck she'd got complete subscriptions, as in some people love to tell you they're vegan and do yoga and on and on as you might imagine. On the other hand, I get along well with mother-in-law, so there's that.

Ah well, family is family. The dog and I being the only makes here are more than surrounded and outnumbered.

New Years was had in the grand Russian style with a great feast:

That's just the first course. A toast was drunk to 2018 and more food was to come. Well, screw the diet this night anyway.

And after the stroke of midnight, a toast was drunk with champagne to the new year and then presents were opened.

The kids got some sportswear / sports gear they had been wanting from us, and makeup from sister-in-law and some cash from their Baba. Tash got a nice gold bar necklace from me, and I got 1,000 rounds of 9mm from her and two 50rd boxes of .45 Speer Gold Dot. A practical gift, that, and an endorsement to get to the range more often.

Baba got a Nespresso Vertuo from us, it replaces her old coffee machine that gave up the ghost this year. It makes some very good coffee and she's enjoying using it a lot.

So far its been a good year.

I hope you all had a great, safe, and enjoyable New Year's celebration.

I slept through it, since I had to get up and be at the airport at 0500! :-)
