What makes a Happy Home? I love to take care of my family. For me, creating a home that is warm and inviting, where everyone feels welcome is pure joy! The smell of fresh laundry just in off the clothesline, a neat and tidy home and garden, a good home cooked meal, a few desserts here and there, the love of family, friends and fellowship all help to make our home a Happy Home. Join me as we celebrate the holidays, the birthdays and the every days!

Missing the laughter
The house seems too quiet this week. Last week seemed like one constant party here at The Old Parsonage. Our Texans (on the left) flew out at 5:30pm on New Year's Eve (Flyboy and LBB on the right). Mr OP and I dropped them off at the airport then did another quick trip to the market - the fridge was pretty bare by the time everyone left on Saturday. We opted for Chinese for supper that night - I was a little too pooped to cook.
But I wouldn't have had the week any other way. It was perfect! New Year's day was spent on the couch watching old movies with Mr OP. I caught up on the laundry and slow roasted pork and sauerkraut in the oven for supper. Eating pork and sauerkraut on New Year's Day is a Pennsylvania Dutch tradition said to bring good luck.
Do you have any traditions that you do for New Year's to bring good luck?
