I have decided to jump in and do my own Project 365: A Photo for Each Day. Who knows, this might even spark 365 layouts for this year. Or not. 🙂
Here’s my first photo, taken January 1st:
Those are hoops that are part of a set, the missing part is the pole. It’s a toy that teaches kids to aim accurately. These hoops gave us hours of fun during our Christmas and New Year’s Eve celebrations. We made a contest out of how many hoops we can successfully land on the pole. I think that the most one person got that night was five out of eight. Everyone enjoyed playing – the kids did well, and the adults had fun too!
Because I was game master at Christmas, I didn’t really get to try this out. Come New Year’s Day, I seized the chance to try my hand at it. I didn’t do to well, haha! Just one out of eight!
That’s what really makes our Christmases and New Years fun, just hanging out with each other and playing all sorts of games for the kids. I don’t remember when this started; we used to just eat, open gifts, and do our own thing. But this new tradition is way more fun of course.
I heard that they played a new game on New Year’s Eve. It was something that 8 year-old Adam came up with, using something that he got for Christmas. I don’t know what it was, I’ll ask around and find pictures.
