parties? fireworks, singing, nothing, etc????
Nope, we just watch the kids get slap happy from staying up so late. LOL This is the first year in a while, that Hubby doesn't have to work the next morning. 8)
We have gone to parties in the past & even done fireworks. What I love to do is have special drinks (like Shirley Temples & other Kiddie Cocktails) for the kids & me (I don't like to drink much) & special snacks that we don't normally get to eat. And we just spend the time as a family playing games & hanging out. My kids don't think staying up till midnight is special because that is what time we go to bed every night.
we usually watch the fireworks that one of the hotels are sending off, hang out at the beach watching the sunset, or by the pool, also playing board games, talking, eating, drinking, but this year we are leaving later so i think we will be in the sky!
We spend the new years with the kidlets. We get sparkling cider and put it in wine glasses... they think it's sooo cool. lol. We get snacks and pizza. Play games and watch movies. Just a fun night for the family. We aren't really into going out and drinking and all of our parents, and family members that babysit occassionally, go out. We enjoy hanging out and making it fun for the kiddies though.
i think this new years we will have a movie night!!

Same thing I did as a kid, we get chips, dips, soda, and pizza and just sit around playing games all night, and watching movies. My DS loves it as this is one time he can eat junk, stay up late and not get into trouble for it, we usually watch the ball drop and then listen to all the crazies shoot off illegal fireworks and shoot off thier guns inside the city limits!
I want to do something but I am not sure what yet. Budget is still very limited. The girls love mask and dressing up so I may have a little kiddy mascarade party and have them make mask with feathers and I will make them little dresses for them to decorate,maybe make crowns and wands too . Then have a dance party . I would love to make little fun foods. I do have marshmellows so we may cover them in chocolate and dip them in sprinkles, make muffin pizzas and corn dogs and have a fun punch of some kind. I really want one activity for the night to be putting together photos of them for the past year. Then make a journal of sorts of goals for the new year.
