This New Year's Eve was a little different for our family. We had some sickness running through our family and while we all felt pretty well on this day, it was just too close to risk sharing it with friends. So we celebrated with just our family this year.
Some things were the same. We still had bags to count down the hours. This has been such a fun tradition and its one that we all really love.
The kids take turns opening the bags and this one made me laugh as you can see that someone can be a little bossy.
Some of the items in the bags are the same from year to year. Making noisemakers.
One that we added last year that was a HUGE hit was silly string. We definitely kept that one!
Lined up and ready to go!
It was hard to get pictures with all of the running around.
You can still see some of the fun that we were having though.
The laughter and the mess.
Everyone got 2 cans this year as we found that one can was just not enough!
And here is Christopher and Isaiah's train.
Sometimes a girl just has to find a quiet space to hang out with her ipad.
In the past we have done pizza which we all love, but its just really hard to make GF pizza so we opted this year for a less labor intensive meal ... taco bar! Yummy and pleasing to everyone!
We played a game of Quirkle. Rebecca won easily.
