I kicked off the night with what has become a New Years Eve tradition. Our photo collage! They are not big fans of this part, but it makes for great memories so I love it, and will continue to do it. I'm sure it will get even harder to get them to do this as they get older. But here is the result! Absolutely love it!!
My 2 Cuties
Now with the pictures out of the way, bring on the fun!! I created goodie bags for them to open each hour throughout the night, in hopes to keep them up until midnight. It was so fun and easy! Using brown paper bags and construction paper, I made goodie bags and drew the time on each bag. They were pre filled with treats I found at the Dollar Store and Target, such as candy, cozy socks, and the hit of the whole night...SILLY STRING!
There were no sparklers, no fireworks, but there was SILLY STRING, for the best SILLY STRING FIGHT EVER!!
There were clear winners and losers...
It was a great New Years, and while a few of us struggled to stay up until Midnight, we did it! And 3 months later, my girls are still talking about our New Years Eve party!!
