365/365 Ringing in the New Year with friends

Posted by Hubby:

This is a picture of some of “the guys” playing cards at our 2nd annual New Years Eve party.

When we moved to the city last year, our family was invited to a friends house {by another former G-town family} for Halloween.  We wanted to reciprocate and so we had a New Year’s party. 

The tradition continued this year with each family hosting a specific holiday event. They are an opportunity for these sets of G-town families {both present and former} to get together because we don’t see each other often enough.

The holiday coverage has now expanded to include a 4th of July celebration and 2012 will likely include a Memorial Day gathering as well.

What started out as an act of generosity by good friends trying to ensure we still felt “connected” even while being away from our traditional family, has now turned into 4-5 families getting together during the various holidays.

I hope this a tradition that can continue for as long as we are able.

These guys have been my friends for 20 years or more.  For that, I am grateful.
