Bacon Cheddar Cheese Ball

Standard

Appetizers and snacks are a given this time of year, sometimes that is all we have for dinner and that is fun. This cheese ball was a new one I tried for this year, and it was really enjoyable. ↓

Games are also a given this time of year! Whether you are playing with  your kids, your husband, your family or your friends ~ usually game playing leads to loads of laughing. I, myself, have always been a game loser. It stems back from the times we would play Memory and my brother would cheat… I would lose, he would win. Cheater. (YEP, callin’ you out bro.)  Playing ANY game with my husband….I lose 9.9 times out of 10. As a mom, I just cannot win. When we  play Memory, my husband and kids stacks are HUGE and I maybe have 2 matches. Believe me I am trying. I guess I need to learn to watch.  Playing Uno, our kids lambast us with “draw 4’s” and “draw 2’s” like crazy. Dad and mom end up in 4th and 5th place. Ha. Funny……

New Years Eve is right around the corner. The year did fly by. It is fun to look back on the past year and think about it, the good AND the bad. We have much to be thankful for.

I hope you have a wonderful Old Year’s Day and New Year’s Day! Whether you are with friends or family, enjoy.
