i stole some fun things off of pintrest this year and began some fun traditions!
first stop was the grocery store for some balloons! the employee thought i was nuts because i had these slips of paper i wanted her to put inside each balloon. ;)
next, we labeled the balloons for every hour on the hour (we started at 4pm). on that hour one of the kids would pop the balloon and everyone would answer the question inside. i saved all the answers for each of their journals. the kids questions came from HERE
then we baked up some yummy cookies and gave everyone the choice between sparkling grape juice or milk.
we read :
once the kids were in bed, it was off to ring in the new year with friends... fondue style!
We had appetizer, meat, and dessert fondue... we had so much FUN!
and... more balloon popping... with adult type questions
couldn't ask for a more fun group!
we stayed out until 1am... and don't regret it!
