Time for a "New Year" Party

Sabrina made this great poster....
I used brown bags and made clocks with the time to open....9 p.m., 10 p.m., 11 p.m., and midnight
4 Candles to light throughout the night....
9 p.m. time to start the festivities....

First we looked back at favorite photos from 2008.  Then I brought out the box pictured here, which we are going to save  mementos throughout 2009.
Some ideas are movie stubs, pictures, etc.  Next year on New Year's Eve we will look through our Memory Box.

Ten O'clock...Fondue time!

Eleven O'Clock...our favorite thing....
Our Blessing Jar.
This was our third year, we write "blessings" throughout the year. We write about the little things we are thankful for and put them into our blessing jar.  It is so much fun to read through them and enjoy our past memories together.

This was something new, I downloaded this from Family Fun Magazine,  it was just some fun things to look forward to in the new year.

We had ginger ale in champagne glasses!
Then we had small fireworks, and sparklers...
Happy 2009!!!!!
