New Year's Eve party

Happy New Year!!! Hope 2009 brings you good health, happiness and lots more stamps!

Every year the library holds a New Year's Eve party for the kids. They count down to noon because you know not all kids can/get to stay up until midnight. This year the party was actually held on the 30th as the library was not open on New Year's Eve.

A story is read about New Years or customs or traditions. Some dancing, always the chicken dance! A craft is made such as a noise maker or a hat. This year it was a hat. And then there is the snacks. Finally it is time to count down to noon and pop balloons that have been filled with confetti! (and you thought the library was a boring place!)

Bev telling the kids about other countries New Year's traditions.

Benjamin and Jorden doing the Chicken dance.

Jorden and Benjamin doing the "Freeze" Dance. (incase you are wondering, the oldest two were at friend's house or they would have been right up there dancing too.)

The description of the snack mix that was part of the snack the kids could have.

Daddy helping Jorden popping the balloon. Have no idea what is up with Benjamin, caught him with a funny expression as he is not crying!

Jorden covered in confetti, she had peanut butter on her face from the snack. The pink confetti stuck to it for the longest time. Her hat is the craft the kids made.

The library always has this train display up every year for Christmas time. The kids love to watch the train go around.

What a great time!!! Our library DOES NOT do this!!! We go to SToryTime and things like that, but they never have parties, I am jealous.
