Happy New Year friends!! I decided that one of my goals for the New Year would be to start documenting life again. I blogged way back in the Stone Age, but decided to give it another go with a fresh start. Let me tell you, I love a good party, so starting with New Years Eve was perfect for me.
You know how all of this awesome things you have in your head never go as planned? Yeah, that’s pretty much my life! It’s awesome though and I wouldn’t trade it for anything and I certainly never let it stop me from continuing to try!
We started our day at the Wake Forest basketball game where Wake dominated until the last minute. There were plenty of emotions, but mostly I was just pissed when they lost in the last minute!
After the game we came home and I started setting up for our New Years party of four. After all the traveling we did for Christmas, I just didn’t have it in me to go all out, so a party in our pjs where the kids went to bed at nine was just what we needed.
We started our night off with breakfast for dinner with a little pizazz! A few star picks and a gold straw (I have a serious paper straw addiction) and I am instantly a cool mom!
I made some star cookies for the boys to decorate as one of their activities. The boys love to decorate cookies and we pretty much do it for every holiday! Hey, any reason to celebrate right?!
After cookie decorating, we watched Rudolphs Shiny New Year (which my hubby totally asked me where I find these crazy movies) and then clinked our glasses filled with sparkling cider!
We ended the party with silly pictures and more confetti than I have ever seen in one place, which my kids then walked through and tracked all through the house. Best laid plans right?
On that note, we say bye Felicia to 2016 and a big welcome home to 2017!! Happy New Year friends! Here’s to one kick ass year!
