This New Year's Eve was spent in Cocoa Beach with family.
Yes, I know it's snowing where many of you are as you sit reading this post.
Yes, I know it's freezing and wet and miserable.
So, as my violin plays softly in the background, I welcome you to a Florida-style New Year's Eve Day :).
Hugs all around.
Well, actually you might want to hold this one at arm's length - lol!
Not me, I got a big hug anyway!
The water was chilly, but do-able.
It was a beautiful, peaceful day.
The children had this whole water-world-thing going on. Pretty incredible!
(I think this is my favorite picture from the whole day!)
Then we headed up to the house . . . .
. . . . for more swimming. Don't you just love Florida?!?
After showers, the kids played with the DS's,
and the grownups just enjoyed the company.
And this is what a Cocoa Beach Christmas tree looks like :).
I love Shannon's taste in ornaments! So much fun!
I apologize now to all my northern friends for these pictures.
Hopefully they made you feel a little warmer.
A little more hopeful. And happy.
From the Hendon household to yours - Happy New Year! May the God of the Universe richly bless you in this coming year!
