A Very Pleasant New Year's Celebration

We had a very nice New Year's here at the house with family.  We had my mother-in-law, sister-in-law and niece here with us to celebrate. It has been quite the full house

As part of our New Year's celebration we had a fine feast and right after midnight we exchanged gifts in the Russian tradition.  The kids got to stay up to greet the new year, although Leah had a nap beforehand.

Abby and Leah got me a very thoughtful gift:

 It's a darn nice firearms calendar, and they wished me many new guns in the upcoming year.

We got them passes to the Adventure Park so they can once again romp through the tress and on zip lines once the weather gets a bit warmer.

Jett got some nice new toys and he was most content to play with them.

The feast was fine indeed, with excellent traditional Russian dishes and a nice champagne.

Then everyone went to sleep after a nice celebration.

Today was a nice relaxing day with plenty of leftovers to eat, and tomorrow the year starts in earnest.
