New Years Eve in my mind

ideas for New Years Eve

It’s 6pm on New Years Eve and the party at our house is in full swing. In my mind’s eye, it looks just like this. Elegant and sparkly, kid-friendly and lots and lots of fun.

In reality, we’re lying on a bed of pillows on the floor watching Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in our sweatpants.

I wanted more for all of us. Something prettier than this, but we’ve been knee deep in house projects for the last few days and truth be told we’re all a little tuckered out. Tonight, we’ll relish in each other’s company, cuddle a lot, eat popcorn and chase each other in the dark with glow sticks, it will be equally wonderful in our own little way.

I’ll file these lovely projects aways for another fun family night.
