new years day

after watching the auburn game at home, we all headed over to tita karmie's house around 2:30pm in honor of spending the first day of the new year with family. everyone brought a dish, and lola made the traditional black eyed peas and turnip greens for good luck and fortune.

as soon as we walked through the door, tita karmie led the mabster to her sunroom since she heard "sassy" (their dog) barking outside. once inside, i notice the huge painted mural of the USA that tita karmie painted herself. it's outstandingly awesome because within each state, she painted an icon for what it's famous for and used a quarter to locate the state's capitol. note: she actually used the real quarter's state capitol. she's nifty like the kids pretty much played and walked all around the upstairs of tita karmie's house. there was so much fun stuff to play with that there was never a dull moment or something not being touched. after dinner and watching football though, everyone started getting weary. we say goodbyes, pack the girls up, and they both fall asleep simultaneously on the car ride home. all around, it was a great way to spend the first day of 2010 with family. thank you for having us, tita karmie. we love hanging out at your home, and well, the mabster thinks you're the cat's meow. at least for today. hehe.
