We had a blast celebrating New Year’s at our humble home. Two of my dear husband’s co-employees and their families came over to celebrate with us. They bought fireworks and we had fun shooting fireworks in a cold New Year’s Eve. The kids had fun dancing with Just Dance on Wii U. We’re supposed to do Just Sing Karaoke too, but for some reason the CD didn’t play.
It was a great New Year’s celebration. We missed a few family and friends but they were sick and my brother-in-law and his wife already had a commitment ahead of time.
Happy New Year to you! Wishing you all the best of 2017.
Darling daughter’s teacher announced last week that there will be an awarding tomorrow. This is for the nine weeks school period. K is getting recognized, and she will be given an award tomorrow. She said she doesn’t know what the award is for so I guess I’ll have to find out tomorrow morning. 😊
It was a beautiful day. The temperature was so perfect that we were able to stay the whole time. So here’s the one of the much awaited event of the year in Wylie – the National Night Out (NNO) 2016. Since we discovered this special event two years ago, my darling and I together with my cousins join the occasion. This is also an event of appreciation to the community service workers who help us keep our community safe in peace and order. Also, this is an opportunity to meet the your neighbors.
Spin the wheel game
So at the NNO there were exhibits of firetrucks and air medics, distribution of safety guidelines courtesy of the city police department, K-9 training show, barrel ride, bounce houses, obstacle course, free food and games, and giveaways of complimentary items from sponsors and vendors. And, of course, fireworks.
We had so much fun. This is an annual celebration every first Tuesday of October.
A friend of mine has two adorable daughters. The youngest just turned 1 a couple of weeks ago. Kyana had a simple yet a very cute party. Her mom did all the birthday party decorations. How awesome. The cake was nicely decorated, too. What a talented mother Kyana has.
Do-it-yourself or DIY birthday party decor can save you a lot of money. If you are very creative, you can make your own party decorations from extra scrapbook supplies or unused paper goods in your home. All we have to add to the creativity is a lot of motivation and diligence to do it. There are so many DIY inspiration and resources on the Internet. The moment you find the perfect decor inspiration, the urge will come after. And you do not have to buy party decor every time.
Popping the Balloons Game
My darling daughter enjoyed at the party as well. My friend prepared kids’ party games for the young guests. K’s favorite was Popping the Balloons. What’s funny was, the kids had to pick a certain colored balloon to pop yet they can pick whichever pretty much. The game took a little while to finish. 🙂 Everybody got a prize though.
The cake and the food was delicious. Everyone had a wonderful time at Kyana’s 1st birthday party.
I saw cars parked at the neighbors’ across the road and there were men buys putting up these two party tents Friday morning. There’s a party coming up, I thought. Sure enough, there was a wedding reception party last night.
What a neat idea to have these party tents set up for a special occasion. I haven’t seen something like this before. This would be nice if you a planning to have a big crowd to your parties in the future. Check out party tent rentals now.
