Happy New Year Party


One of the joys of being a 
Stay-At-Home Nana
(yes, I just coined that phrase) 
is that I get to have parties with my
little guys for special occasions.
Getting ready the night before.
Party hats are a must for a
New Year's Party.
Always ready to party.
Another party animal.
There aren't many books to go
with the New Year's Theme, so
we had a co-theme
of Noah's Ark.
Noah had to start fresh just
like we start fresh each new year.

(A teacher learns to make
anything fit with the theme
she has chosen.)
 
Macaroni died with food coloring for
a craft.
 
The little guys thought it was fun
but their attention span was not that long.
Caleb decided to "do his own thing."
Can you say first born?
I can say that because I am one.
One of the exciting (non-planned)
activities was throwing
all the balloons down the stairwell.
Can you find all three boys?
They are all there.
 
We made rainbow cookies.
Yes, I often wear a
super-hero cape when
the boys are here.
Caleb's idea.  
I must admit, raw dough was
eaten during this project
and no one got sick.  Whew!
Caleb really got into it.
Of course, smart boy that he is,
he informed me that I didn't have
all the right colors for a rainbow.
As you might be able to tell,
tattoos were also among the
non-planned activities.
These were actually left over
from Christmas 2011. 
The final project wasn't too bad at all.
I was afraid the colors would fade during
baking, but they didn't.
Caleb and Aaron had an impromptu
tea party at this little dolls table.
Can you tell how small the table and
chairs are?
And one of the best parts of the day
was that the mama's and daddy's
got to hang out together.
How blessed David and I are
to have them all in the Springs!

They had so much fun! I wondered where all the balloons had gone but just figured they had popped. Now I know. Thank you for giving us a great morning out and thanks for showing the boys such a wonderful time and teaching them too! love you, Kelly
