Happy New Year!
I couldn’t start the year without at least one sparkler post.
We do this every year with the kids. It is not quite as exciting as full blown fireworks, but the kids don’t mind and it is a lot lighter on our wallets!
We had a cold and slightly wet new years eve. Luckily we were able to meet a few neigbours outside in the early evening. That way the kids could play around, enjoy the sparklers and some sparkling apple juice and still be in bed at a decent time.
Well that was the plan, but lets face it. In the Netherlands the fireworks noise is crazy. Everybody tries to make as much noise as possible so sleep is not really an option around midnight. We were exhausted the next morning. Starting the year with a big mug of coffee and dozing on the sofa for most of the day, seems about right to me.
Next year we will probably do it all again.
Here’s wishing you a very happy 2017.
I cannot wait to see who I will meet and I really look forward to all the photos I will be taking this year!
