BRINGING IN THE NEW YEAR

 Red Lobster seemed like a wonderful way to bring in 2018.  As you can see below, we don't know how to take "selfies".  What a hoot..we were laughing so hard.







 The solution, have the waitress take our picture for 2018.

We were too full for dessert, so came home and made a German Chocolate Cake to eat later with a nice cup of coffee.

God has blessed us so much this year with family, friends and a wonderful place to live and good health.  We have had our trials too, and the loss of too many friends and family members, but as my dearest always says....God is Good!  And if we believe that, we can Trust Him with everything.  That's where we live our lives on a daily basis.

Sending God's blessing for a great year for all of you dear blog friends.
