We told the girls they could stay up late for a party if they were very obedient all week. They were good listeners so the party was on after nap time yesterday. They were so excited. I didn't have much in mind in terms of a party, but they loved every thing we planned. I cut little strips of paper with different activities printed on them and taped them to balloons. Every 30 minutes or so, we would pluck a balloon off the wall and do the activity. The girls loved it, we all did. We went outside to count stars, we played games, we ate cookies, we had a dance party, we were busy! The ball dropped around 9 Pacific time, we toasted sparkling cider, threw confetti, and had the girls in bed by 10.
What a night! Happy New Year!
