How was your New Year? Ours was AWESOME!

We decided to welcome it with a Camping Party! [WARNING: Photo Overload]

We started out early and put up some tents. We had this Igloo tent which peanutbutter brought home a couple of years ago, a Hello Kitty tent sis bought and a makeshift tent made from one our plastic tables wrapped with a large piece of brown cloth.

And what is a Camping Party without S’mores?

Smores is our first food for the day! We had different flavors of marshmallows to go with ours. We had strawberry beehive marshmallows, grizzly bears marshmallows, flower marshmallows, and vanilla marshmallows.

For the cookies, we had oreos and graham. For the chocolate, we had Hershey’s {of course!} and Nutella!

The kids are wearing polka dots to represent the money flowing in the coming year!

I love s’mores and just couldn’t stop eating it until we ran out of chocolate….

We also had some chocolate Fire Logs, Gummi Snakes, Twigs and Goldfish around…

Because of all the sweets, I kept the personalized acrylic tumblers filled with cold water.

We didn’t have any sparklers or fire crackers this year. We just played with lights… and some trumpets.

It was some really good partying for the first day of the year!

I guess there will be a lot more great parties in 2013, huh?
