Happy New Years 2014!

We were all a little under the weather for New Years Eve this year. We were tired, the parties we wanted to go to were far off, and to be honest, home sounded really good this year…

I threw the party together in about 45 minutes. I started with a run to the dollar store for supplies: small little doodads for goodie bags, a fresh glue stick, some ribbon, and some discounted glittery balls for the Photo Booth…

I made some treat bags with paper lunch sacks (we have to get a whole bag every year for school and end up using three) clocks downloaded from the internet, and lots of fun!

We were going to use some Photo Booth supplies I’d picked up ages ago at Wal-mart, but when I couldn’t find them, Nick reminded me that I’d donated them to a church pre-teen event (I never saw photos from that, btw!)

We loved glittering up these photo booth props. (We found them online and cut them out ourselves.)

We loved the sentiment this sign displayed, so we printed one of our own.

Another hour, another goodie bag. I made them all out of things found at the dollar store.

Even with hourly goodie bags, the evening dragged on, so we watched Harry Potter while we waited for the countdown.

Movie watching time!

Finally it’s time for the big countdown!
