January 1, 2006

All in all I think it was a good first day of 2006. Not an exciting day but not a bad one either. I managed to get all the pictures off the camera & onto my iBook. Then I put a few photo album pages up on our .mac homepage. I will work on getting them linked to here. Corey got a phone call from his good friend, Loren. He is a childhood friend and they've kept in touch. We saw him back in July during our summer vacation but he wanted to get all caught up and let us know of the date for his upcoming wedding. Yeah! Congratulations to Loren and Karen.

We made blackeye peas & ham for New Year's day dinner. A tradition passed on to me by my maternal grandmother. It is supposed to be good luck for the year. It is a southern thing I believe. I know others have a tradition of different foods. Do you have a food tradition for New Year's day? What is it?

Morgan did some reading on Christopher Columbus and Franklin D. Roosevelt today. She also created a couple of acrostic poems today all on her own. First she did her name & Alex's name but had some negative words in them. So I asked her to do 2 for me using family and Morgan. She wrote Fun, Active, Modern, Independent, Lovely & Young to describe family. Here is a picture:

And she wrote Musical, Original, Real, Giggly, Artistic & Nice to describe herself. Here is the picture:

Alex and Corey are playing a video game, Kingdom Hearts, on the PS2 so she decided to read the 2 books on maps (map scales & map keys) that we got from the library. She is now working on creating a map for me. She won't tell me what it is but it is self-assigned. You just gotta love it when they take an interest and run with it.

My mom always made pork chops with saurkraut. But we usually have a pork roast and black eyed peas. The black eyed peas are a Richard thing. He proclaims it a southern thing (his mom is from Kentucky)
