New Year's Eve: In Holland

We were so lucky to be invited to an annual New Years Eve party that our new friends host every year. This year the country they chose for the theme was Holland.

In traditional Holland fashion, it was also a costume party! I pulled out our costume boxes and we whipped up these costumes for the entire crew.

Snowman contest: Boyd and Andrew

The winning team!

Boyd and Andrew were good sports, and had many fan club members by the end of the night. 

Nice hat/ears on this snowman.

A worthy adversary in the snowman contest.

Hearing all about the traditions of Holland.

Pure joy to find the treats left behind in her shoe.

Finishing off the night right with fireworks! 

It was great to have a fun family activity to go to on New Years Eve.  I hope we get invited again next year!

What fun traditions do you do for New Years Eve? I'm always looking for new ideas!


  1. Fun, fun, fun! Our only other New Year's Tradition is watering the lawn so the neighbor's fireworks don't turn into a grass fire. (Maybe you can find a more exciting tradition to adopt.) ;)

  2. Hahaha...trying to nurse an orange, that's funny!!!! What a cool party! :)


Don't be shy, comment!
