Nathanael had a small devotion.

We then broke out games and food.

I made chicken chili which is a church favorite. Two instant pots full got eaten!
The children lit some fireworks.

The church went to the park for the big celebration at 12 am.
In the park at 12 am to ring in the New Year
Nathanael dropped kids off. He arrived home around 2am. The neighbor got a new sound system which he used. I finally was able to fall asleep at 3:30am with ear plugs and the fan by my head.
Adrene, Selah, Morene and Zion stopped in the park for a picture on their way home
The next day Nathanael drove Moriene and Adrene home. I slept until 11 am. Our friends from Koinonia invited us for lunch. Sandra who came for the party also came. Lunch was a mix of Spanish, ASL and English. What fun. No pork and sauerkraut for us. Dirty rice with chicken was well received!
Dirty rice for the first day of 2019
Apples to Apples pictures really is our "go to" game in situations where there is language mixing. All 12 people (3 Spanish speaking, one Deaf) were able to enjoy the game together
We enjoyed ringing in the New year.
May your New Year be blessed!
