New Years 2010

Though we had a quiet New Years with just us and my parents, Rowan and Niamh were so excited about our "party". Staying up late, special cake, ice cream, popcorn, hot chocolate, watching some TV, sparklers...what's not to love?

Rowan and Muriel check out the New Years cracker (I have no idea what these are actually called, so I'm just calling it a cracker). They sell these all over in Switzerland, year round, but are especially popular for New Years and August 1st.

Everyone is ready for the big bang! Rowan hid in his bed.

Basically, the wick gets lit and then all sorts of toys and party favors pop out of the top.

Niamh puts together a little puzzle that was in the cracker.


I was so surprised that Rowan was willing to do the sparklers (this is the first time we've done them with the kids), but apparently he had already done them at school, the last day before Christmas break.

  1. How fun! Too bad we don't have these here in the states.
