December 31st: New Years Eve Cape Verde Style =)

Usually we celebrate New Years Rio De Janeiro style, but the kids seem to need an earlier bedtime tonight, so we are counting down to NYE with Cape Verde this year, aka 7pm =)  We’ve made party hats, wishing wands, and we took down our Christmas ornaments to turn our tree into a New Years tree =)  On the wishing wands, we each wrote one thing we wanted to do in the next year.  Donovan wished for Dinosaurs.  He may want a dinosaur birthday party =)  Serenity wished for butterflies in the garden.  I wished to travel with my family. (This may be cheating, as we have already planned on doing Fantastico and maybe Disney in the fall, but I still wish for it =)  Eric wished for more sports.  We made one for Maia, and Serenity said she wishes for a happy family, which may be the best wish of all! =)




Maia fits in the Moby! I LOVE it, it’s so snuggly!


Working on our wishing wands. DZ is adding some pink and yellow butterflies to Maia’s wand.


A little park fun =) It was 60 degrees today, although still chilly in the wind.


Our New Years Eve tree. =) I didn’t make it as far as putting up streamers or getting confetti, but we had great fun anyway! =)


I love Serenity’s butterfly wish =) And when she got into her nightgown, she chose her butterfly nightgown so her wish can come true right away. Anybody know how to plant a butterfly garden?


New Years Kiss =)
