Whooo Wants to Ring in 2014

I am a sucker for themes
so for New Years Eve we did a "night owl" theme
Whoooo wants to make some noise

 Whooooo's thirsty for Root beer floats
Whoooo wants to watch a movie
Whoooo wants a midnight kiss
Owl always love you

Whoooooo wants to bang in the New Year at midnight
All 6 night owls made it to midnight
