How we rang in the New Year...
Started with a blazing fire in the fireplace. Have I mentioned how much I love having a wood burning fireplace? It's AWESOME!!
We played some Disney games, Headbandz and Cranium.
And made some yummy s'mores.
Later, we made the Brown family's traditional New Year's Eve food of stuffed mushrooms.
We watched some New Year's Eve shows on TV and did a little dancing Gangnam style.
Once it got closer to midnight, we headed outside and threw some poppers and lit some sparklers.
The kids were sleepy and it was cold, we only stayed out for a little while.
We came back inside and rang the New Year in with a countdown on TV, confetti and kisses.
Then I headed back out to get a couple pictures of the fireworks show. 26 fireworks that were shot off the Aria (I think) were dedicated to and had the names of the 26 victims of the Sandy Hook tragedy written on them. We finished the night with a family prayer, praying for good things to come in 2013. Overall, it was a great night and a great way to end 2012 and start 2013.
