    I will probably not do anything special for New Year's Eve. I used to stay up to ring in the new year, but now I think I'd rather get a good night's sleep and start January 1st feeling awake and energetic.

    Will have the grand daughters for our own little New Years Eve celebration. Pork, kraut and dogs for midnight (good luck tradition) Fruit and dip, veggies and dip, cheese, crackers and pepperoni tray, leftover holiday cookies, etc. Hats and noisemakers. Will play board games, watch kid friendly DVD and then watch the ball drop. Midnight equals lots of noise, hugs and kisses and then out in the yard to also listen to neighbors shoot off guns...( In PA also and yep, alittle bit redneck as well! LOL) A taste of the pork and kraut and then bundling 2 little girls off to bed! Hopefully we will all sleep late on New Years Day! Happy 2011 ALL !!!!!

    If we can find a sitter, we're going to do dinner and movie with friends.

    If we can't, we'll stay home, snack, and rent movies.

    I have invited my siblings and families to come over and enjoy the evening playing games, eating too much snacks and letting the kiddies play together. We will ring in the new year and then everyone can spend the night at my house...I have tons of room. No one will be out driving on the road with the drunks.

    Just another typical night. Midnight is around my supper time, so just food, no special snacks. I'll probably be reading or crocheting or playing on the computer. If I'm feeling unusually festive I might wear my Official Boring Person pin for a couple of hours.

    I hope those of you who party have a grand time!

    We used to go to First Night with our three boys, but they shut down this year due to lack of funding. So we have decided to stay home and have munchies and appetizers, watch movies, and watch the ball drop.

    We alternate between going out someplace really nice, and staying home. Last year we went to the local casino all-you-can-eat prime rib buffet. So this year we will probably be home.

    After dinner we get on the computer and play MMOs with long distance friends all night.

    I don't particularly notice drunk/crazy drivers on New Year's eve more than other times around here. If anything, there's a lack of traffic that night.
    Stop trying to organize all of your family’s crap. If organization worked for you, you’d have rocked it by now. It’s time to ditch stuff and de-crapify your world.

    If you're not using the stuff in your home, get rid of it. You're not going to start using it more by shoving it into a closet.

    Many years ago, we used to go to DBIL's house on NY eve's, potluck dinner or fondue, but we used to leave an hour before mid-night, (the drive back home is 30 mins on freeway). Getting scarier each year, quite a few drunk drivers out there & police road blocks in our city. We decided not to go to DBIL's house, but spent the NY eve at home.
    For the last few years, we invited our neighbor (a couple) to our home, have NY eve dinner, usually fondue. More fun! Our kids (about the same age) are all grown up & have their own activities/parties to go to. It will be the same for this year.
    Then we'll have lunch w/ the in-laws on NY day.

    We have reservations at the Hyatt Regency for their New Years Eve Party. We will have dinner at Skies, along with drinks and dancing. Has become a tradition for us to go, along with two other couples who do the same! So looking foward to it!

    I'm having a party for 3-5 ten year old girls. This year's theme is boas, mocktails and pjs. I got a big bucket of strawberry margarita mix for Christmas, and since I don't drink I thought it would be a fun mixer with some sprite for the girls. I have the boas left over from a window display at my old store, little umbrellas from the dollar store for the drinks and a freezer full of goodies to heat up.

    I always do a kid's party - we are in a small apartment now so my oldest is inviting her friends to her dad's place.

    probably staying in with snacks and champagne to watch the ball drop. I'm also afraid of the drunk drivers.

    DH has to work so I'll be home alone, probably in bed reading by 10. Satrurday we will take our traditional motorcycle ride, as long as there isn't any ice on the roads. We have a bottle of Asti for Saturday night, that's about the sum of it.
    Polly, I have Amish neighbors and hear those gunshots every holiday at midnight.
