When we set up the booth, we had great sunshine streaming in the kitchen window, but by the time the party started, we had bad lighting. And my camera takes fuzzy pictures in bad light :(
My sister-in-law brought poppers, and we had a fake midnight before everyone left about 8:30.
The kids thought the poppers were the best!
Ethan was determined to stay up until midnight, but ended up going to bed at 11. Chris kept poking me to stay awake until midnight. So we welcomed in the New Year by watching Taylor Swift and other crazy hollywood types wearing too little clothing for the cold weather in New York.
Totally worth it.
Happy New Year!
