Ringing in the New Year...

For the first time ever, Jaelyn had a birthday party ON her birthday. We told her she could have a New Year's Eve slumber party, which meant waking up, she would be 10! With still having several days before we have to head back to work/school, we knew we would still have plenty of time to recoup;)

First, the group jumped on the new trampoline we bought the girls for Christmas. When they came  back we pulled out the Play & Freeze ice cream maker ball that Mike's brother and sister-in-law bought the girls for Christmas. What a great workout! Mike turned it in to a competitive game, and by the end of 30 minutes, we were all sweating!
The ice cream turned out great and complemented the soccer cake perfectly...

Cake with our traditional Chinese lotus candle...

Final product...

Frosting turned our tongue's blue!
Nail polishing, hair, X-box and more trampoline were the entertainment until fireworks at midnight.

10 minutes until she's 10!

We definitely weren't the only ones out setting off fireworks.

Having a great time outside!

Thanks Dad and Josh for the entertainment!
Here's what the gang looked like after falling asleep to Monster's University....
 Can't think of a better way to ring in the New Year! Happy 10th birthday Jaelyn!
