celebrating 2013

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 :
Philippians 3:13-14
No, dear brothers and sisters, I am still not all I should be, but I am focusing all my energies on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, I strain to reach the end of the race and receive the prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us up to heaven. (NLT)
and toasted to a new YEAR of running the race with our eyes on Jesus!

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!

welcome 2013!!!
