Happy New Year from the Summy Family!

Child #4 and Mr. Summy spent last week constructing a New Year's Eve ball. They started with a large balloon, which they paper mached. For the last layer, they pasted on strips of Christmas wrapping paper. Creative Child #4 spearheaded the entire project.

Here it is! Ta da!
Mr. Summy holds our homemade New Year's Eve ball. (Oh, but I am getting tired of my olive green living room walls.)

Unfortunately, with all the rain, this magnificent New Year's Eve ball (aka New Year's Eve pinata) was still damp yesterday. Too damp to stuff with chocolates and confetti for last night's party.

So, I guess we'll be ringing in the new year next weekend again when we take a bat to the New Year's Eve ball!

Happy New Year to you and yours from us. May 2011 bring you happiness and health.

I love your New Year's Eve ball. It looks like a patchwork Earth. I hope lots of sweetness falls from it. Happy, happy 2011 to you, Barrie!

Happy New Years, Barrie! I'm so glad you got the Bobble! I bought the 18.5 oz bottle without realizing they also make a 32 oz! (http://store.waterbobble.com/store/items) Sooo.. I may be getting another one! haha. I really do enjoy drinking out of it, knowing that any tap water I use is being filtered. I'm still trying to get used to the 'no-straw' aspect of it. I really loved using my Camelback bottle but it was a pain to clean! (Lots of mildew build-up. Gross!)
Let me know how you like Bobble! :) And the Baggu bags are great as well. Lots of use out of them already!

Very creative! I’ll take that over the Snookie ball any year. Sorry to hear about the rain. We got a blizzard. Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! I'm sure you'll have a "ball" whenever you hit the pinata. Very creative idea.

Sorry to hear about the weather bursting your bubble, or your ball for that matter, but it does look really nice!

Oh no!

But a New Years Eve Ball is a great idea. Why should the folks in Times Square have all the fun?

Happy new year!
