Pre-New Year’s Eve party Saturday night with new neighbors, Randy and Amanda Reed, relatively new neighbors, Keith and Judy Olejniczak and old neighbors, Judy and Mike Schmidt! We missed our dear friend and neighbor, Kathy Clevers, but wasn’t able to make it!
Joining us were Randy’s sister, Darcy, her husband, Dan and son, Daren!
Shirley set out hors d oeuvres including large shrimp, meat balls, little wienies, etc, topped off with homemade pumpkin pie covered with whipped cream!
We have been trying to get together for the holidays, and you know how busy every one is! An impromptu idea came up between Shirley and I to see if our neighbors were free that night—they were!
The night was a success, where the new neighbors were
introduced to one-another; the start of new friendships and a chance to learn about each other.
Coincidentally the Badgers were playing in the Orange Bowl during the get-together, and we all cheered as they won an exciting game!
Welcome, Randy and Amanda (they have a lovely five-year-old daughter, Kinley) to Kelly Lake! You guys are great neighbors already!
Shirley and I were invited to the Reeds earlier Saturday for a get together, where Randy’s parents, Dennis and Debbie Reed were there. We enjoyed seeing the nearly finished lakehome!… but the Reeds aren’t done.
The lakehome is only the guest house… they plan on building the main structure out front towards the lake in the coming years.
It was a grand time that came from a last minute, n impromptu idea!
And, HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL!
