Countdown to a new year!

We had our annual small little New Year's Eve bash with our family. We were missing Allyson and The Moore's but we had lots of fun!

We made countdown balloons. Inside each balloon was a note that gave us an activity to do each hour! Such a fun idea! There were 5 kids and we had 5 balloons, so it worked out GREAT!

Ready to party!

{8:00 p.m.} Emry went first! The first note told us that we had to make party hats! I had prepared some different things to make hats, beforehand.


The hats turned out really cute!

{9:00 p.m.} Next, it was Sadie's turn! Dance Party time!!


{10:00 p.m.} Then, it was Alli's turn! Her note said to make s'mores! Yummy! It took forever to get the fire started outside. So while we waited, we played a few games :)


 and...ate lots of junk food...

Our Skinny Buffalo Dip! So delicious!! We sent some home with my brother and a few days later he sent me a text that said he would pay to get the recipe for this dip! LOL!
Finally, s'mores!!!


Then we decided to have a little fun and use Hot Hues on the girls hair. Sadie bought it a few months ago and she's been dying to try it! It was messy but cute. I guess...haha

Emry was blow drying Laney's hair!

Dustin being a Debbie Downer and leaving before the party was over!


 {11:00 p.m.} Cade's turn! His balloon note told us to make our New Year resolutions and pray over them!


Cade couldn't care less. Haha

{12:00 a.m.} Laney's turn! Her balloon said to get the noise makers and celebrate the New Year!! Countdown!

She wasn't really asleep..just tired!

If you look back through pictures of Alli, this is the 3rd or 4th outfit change for her! I always
have lots of laundry to do when she visits..for some reason??? :)

Happy New Year! Many blessings to all of you in 2014!
