A Hat Party

I was planning on doing a post today about our Valentine's Day, when I realized I never posted about our festive New Year's Party.  Since New Year's Eve was on a Saturday and we all have early church, we decided to have the party the Friday before.  I was the hostess, but Heidi was the party planner.  She came up with the fabulous hat theme.  Everyone came decked out in their best hats. 

Here are the Pollard girls in donning their best "fascinators" in honor of Prince William's wedding in 2011.  (I made up that last part, but it could be true.)

The ladies of the night...
Chloe and Sophie

Yin and Yang (James so solemn and Nic so celebratory.)

Sadie knows how to party-it-up, as usual.


The whole crew of cousins, minus the California Cousins. :(

 Oh, and Will and Max...

Each person's hat was unique and this is one Luke put together all by himself!


Look at these two beauties....Chloe and Abigail.

This is my favorite picture of the night, it cracks me up! Uncle Brett lookin' like a pimped-out rap star from the 90's.  Well, sort of.  That is my take on it at least.

The kids played lots of minute-to-win-it games done by Uncle Travis.

Uncle Travis could be a professional game show host, either that or a BINGO caller, or an Auctionair-

Grandpa even got in on the games.

Grandma and Sophie

Someone usually comes up with some fireworks to let off for the New Year, but this year things didn't go off with a "BANG".  It started snowing hard just as they all headed outside and it was too wet to let anything off. 

We will just have to wait until the 4th of July, which will be here before you know it! 


  1. I am so impresssed! What a great post! I AM SO BEHIND, it isn't even funny. Between you and Emily, I am just going to do some copy catting and call it good.

  2. My girls made their hats in honor of the royal wedding.....that was their favorite event of the 2011!
