We rang in the New Year pre-school style complete with noise makers, glittery shakers, boas, and jewels. The countdown began at a few seconds before 5:00 and concluded with much cheering and clapping and giggling and squealing.
So this morning, we welcomed 2011 with glitter on every surface, balloons covering the floor, and sequins as far as the eye could see. And I wouldn't have it any other way. It seems a good omen to wake up to a sparkly house on the first day of the new year:)
Happy New Year!
