new years eve is the new halloween.


The theme was campout and loosely inspired by Moonrise Kingdom (the soundtrack was playing throughout the night), there were mess-hall duties, homemade mac and cheese, peach cobbler, chili, and Tang. It was overly amazing--as usual.
Because the theme was a little loose, we had all sorts of interpretations--army men, hunger games, campers, lumberjacks, scouts, and moonrise kingdom characters. 
while half the guests played Telestrations, the other half was busy building marshmallow fortresses and catapults.
it was taken very seriously, as you can see.
thanks reachel and andrew for another great party!
and i hope 2013 is treating you all very well!
