New Year's Day

2016 started off with puzzles and more puzzles.  These 3 got into a groove and kept it going!
When they weren't putting puzzles together, they were busy playing one of the many games that were received over Christmas.  Kerplunk, Jenga, Lazer maze or Fish-a-ree.
Grandma and Grandpa came over for New Year's dinner and we had traditional fare of pork tenderloin, sauerkraut, mashed potatoes, salad and sauteed green beans with carrots.  No black eyed peas this year.
These two--ha!
The rest of the vacation was spent enjoying being together and chill-axing.  We ended on a high note with a visit to Starbucks.  The girls had found a gift card in the park and after trying to determine who in the neighborhood had lost one and coming up with nothing, we treated them to hot chocolate.
They were pretty excited since they never get Starbucks (J, not so much...!) however I think they need to learn the art of savoring a hot beverage.  They both finished their drinks in about 5 minutes flat--there was some serious chugging going on, rather than sipping.  Ha ha!!
