Happy New Years!

We had a small, but wild celebration for New Years this year, and Nannie, Bridget, Kevin & Liam joined us for a lot of food, some green screen photography fun, and a big & messy celebration of the New Year! We hope yours was as fun as ours!

Nannie helped Abigail make some special strawberry cupcakes with lemon icing in her new Easy Bake oven! They were delicious, but a tad on the tiny side…

Just to be clear… this is a DESSERT size plate…

We couldn’t WAIT to play with our new green screen! We got to be in Times Square and Rockefeller Center from the comfort and warmth of our living room!

Here’s how some of our pictures turned out! Mommy has to keep practicing with photoshop, so our pictures will keep getting cooler & cooler!

Around 7pm, we decided to have our early New Years celebration so the boys could go to bed (even though the made it until 9 o’clock)! We watched the King Julian New Years Eve countdown, had a dance party (wait until you see THAT video), and had a confetti explosion at “Midnight”!

The countdown begins…

Happy New Year (Well, I’m sure it was New Years somewhere….) Ben did NOT like the confetti gun- watch how fast he’s out of there!

He was OK trying his own with Daddy though…

Liam didn’t love the noise either, but LOVED the confetti!

There was a little bit of a mess when we were all done, but it was SO worth it!

Nannie was a little bit embarrassed when we watched back the video of her dancing… but who wouldn’t be???

For the first year EVER, we had a child stay up all the way until the ball dropped! Abigail was so proud of herself, but was somewhat disappointed when she found out that all people do is kiss…

Since we don’t have cable anymore, Mommy was so proud of herself for getting a live feed of the event to stream to the TV… and she figured it out at 11:59pm!
86
Not everyone made it to midnight… There’s always next year though!

Happy New Year everyone! Mommy will post a few videos of our event when she figures them out Smile Stay tuned…
