I've seen a few New Years in my 37 years. There's only a few that really stand out to me though.
I remember being at a friend's house and watching the Dick Clark's NYE show on her mom's big waterbed. Counting down and then running outside to bang pots and pans.
I remember the year that my new husband and I "rang it in" and my mom called and left a message on the answering machine. Talk about a mood killer!
I remember sleeping through a few.
Waking Scott up for a few.
Scrapbooking all night to stay awake.
Last year we hung out with friends and had a great time!
2010 we hung out at my brother's and spent the night, always nice when you don't have to drive home.
I rang in 2009 chaperoning teenagers.
This year we went to my brother's again and celebrated the new year by playing spoons (I won both times!), eating lots of yummy appetizers, having some drinks and hoping that the idiot neighbors that were shooting off guns weren't actually going to kill one of us.
Fun times, fun times.
Everyone stayed awake long enough to ring in the new year except Ava and my nephew Tony.
Pretty sure he passed out before the guns started going off.
Jessica drove us home with Scott micro managing her driving.
I finally just gave in and fell asleep in the back seat with the other two kids.
Guess I'm going to have to make us breakfast since he's still asleep at 11:00!
Here's to a fantastic new year where life only gets better and better!
And lets hope those Mayans really were wrong, eh?Pin It
