Happy 2016 and Happy Birthday

Well, the New Year party was a success! Small but fun!

We ate a bunch of stuff!

Pizza dip in the slow cooker (so good!), kielbasa in the other slow cooker, Mexican dip, crackers and cheese, veggies and dip, and these traditional Italian almond nougat candies called Torrolones. Each one has it's own little box. I used to collect them when I was a kid!

I got my craft on and made these sparkler toothpicks.

Shauna made a cake for Rich because he's having a milestone birthday on Monday.

We popped confetti at midnight. I made everyone pop them over the coffee table.

 Made for easier clean up!

It was a fun night but I am kind of glad the holidays are over. They were exhausting!

Anyway, here's to 2016

May it be everything you want it to be!

Until the next time.....

Happy new year. Everything looks great. Paul and I celebrated with some shrimp soup and a box of ice cream sundaes ~ we were in bed before 11pm. Sounds crazy, but I think this may have been my favorite NYE. : ) Thanks for stopping by my neglected blog. I am hoping to keep up with it a little better in 2016.

It looks like you had a wonderful party and the food looked delicious. You know, I have been wanting to throw a New Years Eve party for years now, but sometimes I can barely stay awake until midnight. I almost didn't make it this year... lol.

Happy birthday to your hubby! My husband just celebrated a birthday, too. His is January 7th... :)
