New Year's Eve!

On New Years Eve we had a quite, but fun time together with the girls. We started by eating some of our snack foods for dinner. Then at 5pm we began by drawing a piece of paper with a fun activity to do each hour. The 1st hour we played Cranium Family Fun Edition. It was a really cool game. It is like Craniumn with a twist and had activities that we had to do as a team. Noah and Ashlyn barely beat me and Autumn. The next hour someone chose the Movie Kung Fu Panda. We set up a blanket on the floor and had a great time laughing together. Then we drew Guitar Hero World Tour. We set up the drums and both guitars. We took turns sharing the different instruments. Since the movie was over an hour long we played until 9:30 and then played Disney Sing It. At 10pm we got the girls ready to ring in the New Year(our girls would never had made it to midnight, so we celebrated early). We got out the sparkling apple cider pouring everyone a glassful. We blew up the balloons, pulled out the poppers, got ready to throw the confetti, and spray the silly string.
Then we yelled 10,9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1...Happy New Year! And let the madness take over. Their was streamers, poppers, silly string all over the house. We had a great time. The greatest part was watching Aubrey get all freaked out over the silly string. She thought they were Snakes. She kept yelling "Go Away Snakes!!!" Then she would run the opposite direction and get this worried look on her face. We told her it was ok and that it was just string. I don't think she ever fully understood. What a great evening and one that won't soon be forgotten. Happy New Year!!!
