We had an awesome night! Felix, Amanda, Natalia and Vince joined us to celebrate the new year! Amanda found a fun activity online about popping balloons every hour. Each balloon had a little activity to do. Jillian really enjoyed the countdown and then the popping of the balloons.
Claire made it to about 9:00 so she got the East Coast New Year’s celebration.
At one point in the night we had the girls playing video games and the adults played Cards Against Humanity, very fun! Haha I love that they made a game of how adults actually play Apples to Apples 😉
At midnight I gave the girls champagne flutes full of apple cider and they really enjoyed the cheers! They were off to bed soon after They crashed as soon as they hit the bed.
We stayed up watching YouTube clips. Then it was off to bed.
Thank you again to our friends who joined us to celebrate 2015!
After we played Monopoly Jr for the first time Jillian has been wanting to create her own Monopoly game. I purchased all the necessary materials and we started making her game board.
First she drafted the board game on paper and wrote out the rules.
We then transferred her ideas to the board and colored it. We made up a bunch of chance cards. Jillian wrote out most of them, it was really awesome to watch her writing sentences. She then drew out the playing pieces. She asked Adrian to make them in the 3D printer but this will do for now since we wanted to play soon.
My mom took Dash back up to Big Bear when they went the day after Christmas. He wanted to stay outside most of the time. Then when it was time to go home he refused to get into the car. Haha these are the pics she sent me.
