Ringing in the New Year

We spent New Year's Eve at home with the girls the year. Plans to celebrate with friends didn't work out, but we had our own little party and it was fun. Rachel and Rebecca were exctied about the party hats and party horns and getting to eat lots of junk food!

This was the best picture we could get. Rebecca didn't want to be in the picture and then wouldn't put down the party horn. It is nice that the girls are getting older, can stay up a little later and starting to understand about celebrating different holidays.

We ate alot of snack type foods and then went out for a little firework show that Raphael put on for us.

Can you see their excitement about the fireworks? Rachel was wanting some Fourth-of-July kind, but ours came from Walmart, so can't expect too much.

Rebecca went to bed after the show and we played some games and ate more snacks. Rachel stayed up till about ten or so.  Raphael and I watched different celebrations on T.V. and managed to make until midnight!
