All good things must come to an end, kinda

We spent last night with our Bocce Ball group, a wild group of friends that agreed to get together every month in 2014 and play Bocce Ball.

 
 I organized this to make sure we made time to see each other since everyone is so busy these days. Time has a tendency of slipping away and before you know it you haven't seen your friends in months.


The competition part added incentive every month to show up, that helped since one couple had to drive an hour each way! It was a commitment that proved to be challenging and rewarding at the same time.

Randy and I- team Holy Rollers
Last night we crowned the winners, celebrated the group and Christmas all together, the way we started the year. It was all about the fun we all have together, the quirks, the oddities, the uniqueness that each one of these people brought into our lives this year. The teams were as follows, We're the Millers, Chris and Linda. Chris gave us a Chris crazy close up every month and Linda always shocked us with her amazingly accurate throwing!


There was Dawn and Mike, The Bocce Bums and eventual winners for the year! 
They won for best Team Uniforms!
Then there was Rudy and Marta, The Ball Bangers, they always added a lot of fun to the group. Rudy was the official, unofficial measurer. Unless some of the other guys with tape measures got involved!  Marta took our amazing group photo, our official photographer.


And then, of course, there was always Jen and Chloe on the sidelines. Always cheering us on!

Last night saw the end of our 2014 tournament. We laughed and celebrated then walked around the lighted area in downtown, we listened to kids singing Christmas Carols and watched people ice skating on man made ice rinks and it was like a real Charlie Brown Christmas!


Thanks everyone for a wonderful year together!
