Boy, did we ever – ring in the new year with a BIG bang!

KJ was SO excited for the party all day, he was super chatty about the balloons, friends, food…he just couldn’t WAIT!Dinner this year was a Mexican themed potluck, thank you to EVERYONE who brought delicious food! Caryn made these super yummy Brisa’s – they were blended together with vanilla ice cream, ice, frozen blackberries & straweberries, Sprite, topped with whipped creme & a blackberry – they were really yummy!We just love our New Year’s masks/etc…We had so much fun taking pictures, dressing up – you would have thought we were a bunch of little 14 year olds with our first digital cameras, not a bunch of 30-somethings. 🙂 Sela was just walking around taking in all the excitement, she was keeping a safe distance from the clowns but still checking them out and then found this mask – and had to wear it! She kept it on for about 10 minutes hanging out with everyone.
We love our clowns!

  1. I am SOOO jealous! We are so bummed that we didn’t make it there. It looks like the Party of the Year! I am sure you loved cleaning up all that Confetti!;0

    We did Bingo too, i loved the Idea of your Raffle! SOOO FUN!

  2. OK – that looks like it is worth coming home from Hawaii a little early for! What a blast – except for the no kissing midnight pictures! What’s up with that? Awesome party, as usual, Jane!
