Cheers to a New Year

Are you ready for a new year?  As Ms. Oprah Winfrey so wisely said...

Cheers to a new year and another chance for us to get it right.

And maybe 2013 will allow us the opportunity to get a few more things right!

We are kicking off the new year with our second annual Family New Years Bash.  As we did last year, our friends are invited over with their kiddos for a potluck style dinner.  Then 2 babysitters arrive for movie time with the kids, giving the older people some old people time.  We do our NYE countdown at 9pm and then it is time for the little party goers to go to bed.

So with the party just hours away we have been doing a little decorating.  The mantel got a simple New Years makeover with lights and sparkles.

The front table is filled with noise makers, beads and a little home made craft.

With some black card stock, popsicle sticks and scissors I turned this into a very sophisticated affair.

We are also super excited for our home-made photo booth!

Our guests can pick their photo accessories from our bin of fun, which includes hats, glasses, wigs, and even a blow up dinosaur.

There are definitely going to be some good black-mail opportunities!

Well, I hope you all have a wonderful New Years.  Stay safe, have fun and dream big cause 2013 is gonna be a good one!
