It's about a hundred years old. I spoke of this church in my previous post. You can see the church on the table behind us in the picture. My little grandma used to always set it up w/ "snow" around it and little Christmas trees. My grandpa and grandma got married in the Naperville church wayyyy back when. She just passed away a couple years ago at the age of 101.

If you click on Matthew's Blog... This is me ~ the one on the right in the clunky shoes,
my sister Kim in the adorable Mary Jane shoes... (that was a little sore spot back then)
and my sweet little brother Danny back in 1965. Danny joined the Angels in Heaven back in October of 1974.
There is a church in the background, my great grandfather handcrafted ... it is a replica of the beautiful Naperville, Illinois church. Mike actually refurbished it a couple years ago and it's looks awesome. I should find the picture and show you.

I loved this bed... it had all kinds of drawers and cabinets. I bought this when I was only 22 yrs old. This was the very first thing we ever bought on credit ... and the very last thing we bought on credit besides our home. I was so sad to get rid of it ~but then again, I don't like change ~ that's just me.

Aren't they so cute! This is Mike's very first squad and he's like a proud papa. LOL
We treated the guys to some yummy Memphis Bar & Grill black eyed peas w/ ham during briefing so that they would have extra good luck for the entire year.

Do you know more than the first couple sentences of this cool New Years Eve song?
Well, I never did until a guy on the radio asked... so Mike and I looked it up.
Auld Lang Syne ~ "For old time's sake" or "to the good old days" may be modern-day expressions, in common use as a toast, that capture the spirit of "for auld lang syne."
If you want to know the lyrics to the song, check this out ... it's pretty neat. Scroll down a bit on the link for the lyrics.
Now, for the BEST PART!
Auld Lang Syne (Millennium Mix) Video ~ this is soo awesome! Played by Kenny G w/ little soundbites of major news stories/events in the 20th Century. The very end is my favorite part.
HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!
Happy New Year Black Eyed Peas ~ have good luck the entire year!
Mom went to Memphis Bar and Grill yesterday and bought some of their black eyed peas ... and OMG, were they ever good! I found this recipe on All Recipes.com and it looks awesome as well.
1 pound dry black-eyed peas
2 cups chopped cooked ham
salt and pepper to taste
1 pinch garlic powder
2 onions, diced
1 (14.5 ounce) can whole tomatoes
Place black-eyed peas in 8 quart pot. Add enough water to fill pot 3/4 full. Stir in ham and diced onions, and season with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Place tomatoes in a blender or food processor, and blend until the tomatoes are liquefied. Add tomatoes to pot. Bring all ingredients to boil. Cover the pot, and simmer on low heat for 2 1/2 to 3 hours, or until the peas are tender.
