Julie made this a chocolate chocolate cake for our New Years Celebration! Our friends, the Hydes, came back to celebrate with us. This is the same family that spent Thanksgiving with us.
Confetti is our tradition. They plan for it for weeks. As a matter of fact, this year, the boys tell me that each day as they cut a ring off their paper chains as a countdown to Christmas, they cut up the paper and saved it for the confetti. We'll be finding and cleaning up confetti for months!
This a page of my scrapbook from 2000. I think the confetti tradition started a couple of years before this. This was the year, somebody got the bright idea to put confetti on the ceiling fan and at midnight they would flip the switch. It really looks pretty fluttering down, but as I said before, we clean it up for months! ( These pages were the least expensive page I've ever done. I used two sheets of cardstock and a red marker with stencils.)
Happy a blessed first day of the year!
