I snapped a few pics on New Years Eve and finally uploaded them to the computer. I'm a little disappointed in myself. I really could have procrastinated it until at least February. It's not like me to be so on top of things as to get NYE pics up by the middle of January!
I'm not very good when it comes to taking pics in the dark, especially with no flash. But, I had to document the awesome time that the kids had. I was super shocked that they both enjoyed it so much. Snappy, the little girl who is scared of the can opener, had no qualms with the noise and loved holding the sparklers. Which, by the way, now come with bamboo sticks so that fingers don't get burned the way they did when I was a kid!
TRex really surprised me. Used to be that kid was spooked by most everything, especially new things. But, he was right there helping to light them and having a blast.
I don't know who was more excited, TRex or Daddy.
We did have a good time that night. It was so much fun to be able to do this stuff right in our own driveway. Combined with all the other people in town popping them off, we got a pretty good show! I'm sure hubby will want to do it bigger and better next year but, this was fun for the 20 minutes or so that it lasted!
