We rang in the new year with a whole bunch of great friends and kids at 6 PM -- new year kids' style! There was a bounce house. We grilled out hamburgers & hot dogs and had a new years celebration cake/cupcakes. Before 6 PM, we all went to the front and the kids had on party hats, were given noise makers and horns, there were confetti poppers, and bubble wrap! The bubble wrap was for our bubble wrap stomp; we counted down (10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1, Happy New Year) and then all the kids made noise and stomped all over the bubble wrap. It was a lot of fun and a great way to start the new year.
