FSO-The New Year.


For the first 30 years of our married life HH and I had attended a New Year's Eve dance some where.

I have a picture of nearly every New Year's Eve dance we attended.

Even some when our children got old enough to attend with us.
However due to printer problems I cannot get those photos to upload so I took photos of them.
Not good photos but it shows how we started our new year for many years.


Well none of those photos were even presentable.
But dancing and parting on the eve and
Mass on New Year's day.


 1982



1984
Wearing a brace 3 months after fracturing a vertebra in my back.
MD said just take it slow and easy.
No jitterbugging.
Which was our favorite.

 1985
Our oldest daughter now old enough to attend with us.


1988
Another daughter old enough to attend.
Tom and our daughter Julia dancing.

 Now days we do our dancing mostly at home.
Dancing with daughter and grand at our yearly P.J. sleep over.


Our last New Year's Even dance.
2004

Dancing the new year in has been our tradition and our most enjoyable activity. 

These days it is more stay at home and early to bed.



How I spent my New Year's Eve in
2013 and hope to spend many more days.

It is all about family.
Always was
Always will be.







Please forgive my fuzzy pictures just remembering good time for us through the years.
