Wild Parties Can Only Lead To Trouble

Last night, while others were partying hardy,
 this was our scene at midnight...

While many who celebrated into the early morning hours  nursed hangovers this morning, I enjoyed my morning coffee as always and Gracie her cookie treat.

Our front yard guests, however...

Didn't fare so well...

 Heads were rolling...

And eyes were too...

Some held up better than others...

But all in all...  it was a bad scene..

Dear Diary, 

 Wild New Years Parties can only lead to trouble. Only trouble. Gracie.


  1. So, do you think local party revelers came by and assaulted your merry snowmen....or did the snowmen have a wild party, themselves? ;-)

    On a more serious note, I'm sorry your son's efforts were wasted. :-(

  2. Awwwwwwww! Well, so good you have the pictures and you can always see them whenever you want!

  3. Hmmmm.....something serious went on outside!

  4. Your evening was like ours. Sleepy pups and peace.

  5. That was some party in the yard! They were rocking and rolling! Happy you stayed in and enjoyed your evening! Happy New Year dear Bobbi, HUGS!

  6. This was our 'scene' as well Bobbi...TV on watching the Times Squares countdown shows! We were there one New Year's Eve.....it was amazing especially for us 'country bumpkins from Nova Scotia!! Happy New Year!

  7. I loved the book trailer and seeing Gary's daughter's face that was blocked out in the book, so innocent, so loving her daddy, made the impact of what happened hit home even more. Great job!

    Samson Says: So Gracie, why weren't you out there lunging and defending your snowmen? It would have been good if I had been there, huh? We would have beat them up together and saved the snowmen to melt another day. Happy New Year, sweet girl. xoxoxo, your Samson.

  8. Oh, dear! One would think those snowmen came to life just like Frosty!
    What a miserable fate for some of them.:-(
    Happy New Year!

  9. A quiet night at home for us as well! Very nice actually! lol Sorry the snow family didn't fair so well!

  10. My celebration looked a lot like yours, not like those wild folks on the front lawn. Wishing you a very happy and healthy new year.

  11. I love the photos of Gracie. Too bad about the snow folks!!! I was sound asleep at midnight!

  12. Ours was also a quiet evening with sleep right at midnight and a regular schedule today! So did warm temps get the snow people or did partying people get them?

  13. Oh, my - I see what you mean about the snow! Actually, our snow here in CO (when it's frigid like it is now) is too powdery to make a snowman. (My grands still try, though.) Gracie looks mighty relaxed in the photo! Happy 2013!

  14. It did look as if somebody was having a party... sorry 'bout that.

    I haven't seen the Honeymooners in ages. Glad you had a nice quiet evening.

  15. oh the poor little snowmen are tired!
    Happy New Year

  16. what a shame with the destruction of the snowmen family :(

    We slept through New Year's too, Gracie.

    but all in all I hope it is a great one for you all!


  17. Heads will roll.... BOL funny.
    Gracie & Peeps
    Wishing you all a Happy New Year.
    We hope 2013 is a good one for you and the year is filled with joy and fun.
    Best wishes Molly

  18. Glad you had a quiet New Years Eve. It does look like your snowmen had quite a bash though. It was a quiet one here too. Happy New Year!

  19. I wanted to stop by to wish you a happy new year! Your scenery is so different from mine as I live in Phoenix, Arizona. No snow here!

    Blessings and love,

  20. Hi Bobbi and Gracie, So very cute; I am glad that you didn't suffer from too much fun. Your snowman however didn't fare as well. Just wanted to let you know that I highlighted your book today on my blog. I will also be emailing you soon to ask some questions about your publishing it-will explain more.
    Hugs, Noreen & Hunter

  21. HAHAHA! LOL!!!! This post complete with pictures of "hung over, and "partied - out" snowmen is soooo funny!!!!!

    Hehe! priceless......

    love the pic of Gracie looking sadly down at the result of the snow man's night of revelry.... hehehe


  22. Oh, sad snow people. We welcomed the New Year with our grandchildren and their parents at their up-state NY home by playing games, watching a moving and eating.

    Happy New Year wishes to you!!! :)

  23. I brought in the new year at work so not much partying here either. How sad about the snowmen!


Veterans Day - Remembering Dad

Pulling Dad's letters from an old tin,  I feel his loneliness as I read his letters home.  (FYI, Jo was my mom) Jan. 18, 1...
