    We usually go out to the movies with friends and then out to dinner we're home early about 8 pm to watch tv and watch the ball drop. (:

    I plan on bringing the new year in with my 2 daughters at church. I was scheduled to work the ER that night but got it off. I am so shocked that someone will work for me. So singing and praising is what I will be doing. I am off on New year's day. I just hope I am not broke!! oh.....wait!!! that's payday!! Hey....what a way to bring in 2010!!

    We used to go out all the time and party it up, but now we have a little one and the dh has to work the next day.

    I will watch the countdown with Anderson Cooper. (my favorite cnn journalist in the world.)

    And eat drink and be merry safe and sound in my warm house.

    (gah, I'm getting old)

    We also have cream soda and orange soda in bottles (sometimes rootbeer). The kids think that is super neat.

    Oh man, that sounds good.

    We make a real night of it. Every year for Christmas my husband gets Italian cured meats and specialty cheeses.I make up platter and add some water crackers and maybe hummus, some veggies and dip. Some sparkling juice to toast the new year. We watch the ball drop and then the boys go outside and bang pots and pans!

    I will be working. Actually, I am going into work early, to relieve a co-worker so that she can enjoy New Year's Eve. I am scheduled to work at 10:30 P.M. anyway, so I figured I might as well.

    My MIL always makes homemade pizzas, we have snacks and go outside at midnight (the whole family!) and bang pots and pans for about 5 minutes! The neighbors must love us. LOL

    We usually have a quiet night. Have some munchies and watch some movies.

    Have friends over and eat and talk and laugh while the kids play in the basement. Usually there are one or two kids still awake at midnight to kiss on. Then we wake up, have breakfast with friends and get the pork roast on for parents to come over later in the day.

    Default New years

    We block ourselves in, wear p.j's all day, I cook all morning, and we pig out all day, snacky foods. We play games and people stop by. Then about 11 we break out the sparkling juice and watch the count down, then come 12 we call everyone we know and wish them a happy new year. It is my favorite day of the year.

    I usually get the house cleaned for the new year and read a book. Not one for going out on New Years eve. More of a homebody and don't like being around alot of people unless it is my family.

    We'll play board games with the kids and watch a kids movie with the kids. After they go to bed, we'll watch a movie that we'll rent, probably through Netflix, and then we'll watch the ball drop. Dh will probably have to wake me up for the ball drop, as I tend to fall asleep during movies that we watch that late.
