After all the Christmas celebrations, it was finally New Year’s Day.

The day began doing my favorite thing to do with New Year’s Day, watching the Tournament of Roses Parade. A fine tradition my dad started with me.

This year it was even better as the whole family, even Silas and Rubi, and John got to watch it with me. The children got excited with the different floats.

Laura gave Miranda a rare treat with some touches of make up.

John finally got to meet the Fletcher side of the family, here with my Uncle and Kenny.

It was a perfect start of the year with family. We enjoyed our time together so much.
