Happy New Year!

We had a great New Years Eve!

On New Years Eve Morning, we went to the Children's Museum. Natalie had such a great time.

Shopping in the shopping center at the museum.

The museum had parades every hour from noon, and Natalie got to walk in two of them - making lots of noise with her noisemaker:

Parade time!

At the end of the parade, the kids each got a big handful of confetti that they threw up in the air at "New Years" for a new country for each hour. It was a really great time.

After naptime, we had our own little New Years party at home. We decorated, and had lots of noisemakers:

Happy New Year!

We also had some "party poppers", the little bottle shaped ones that shoot confetti out when you pull a string. And Natalie even did a couple of them herself:

What she said at the end of the video was "Pick it up before the floor goes on fire". Such a safety conscious girl. Though she was a little cautious, she was very proud that she got to do it all by herself!

We had a great new years dinner. Yesterday we went to the supermarket and each picked up something we wanted to eat at our party. Natalie picked a cupcake for dessert - it was almost the size of her head! And no, she didn't eat all of it...

A giant cupcake - the perfect New Years Eve dessert!

Happy New Year to everyone, hope you had a good celebration, too!
