Just wondering how everyone celebrates, especially those with young children.
Do most get babysitters and go out, or do you stay in and have a family oriented evening?

We stay home - make new years punch (orange sherbert and 7up) and drink out of fancy glasses We will probably ring in the new year about 7:30 or 8pm with our two year old before she goes to bed

We're going to my SIL's house for dinner, snacks, probably some kind of game, and lots of BSing . I have the sparkiling apple/grape cider for me and the kids (I'm pregnant) and my 2 year old will probably conk out on the couch. She hasn't wanted to fall asleep while I'm holding her for quite some time now, so I'm looking most forward to that-how ridiculous is that??? LOL. Next year, I think will be our first, hopefully annual, New Year's bash at our house.

I am making dinner for the in-laws. Then, the kids will watch movies while the inlaws, myself and my husband will sit around and play some games, while drinking some beer and eating some snacks, and then we'll ring in the New Year with some fireworks. Hopefully I won't feel too bad tomorrow.

After having a nasty fall yesterday at Boston Common, we are having a CD friend that is also new to Massachusetts spend New Year's with us at home. Comfort foods for a snowy day and champagne and desert later. My son will be at his first New Years party with high school friends and then sleep over at another's.

Well, I'm actually doing nothing but staying at home with my dog and parrot. My adult son is in California and my adult daughter lives in Australia, and my last boyfriend (of ten years duration) ran off with a younger woman LAST New Years, so I'm just holing up for this one. I might drag myself away from the computer to cut some more tile for my kitchen floor though...

Went to the neighbors and played cards with their kids and ours - watched the ball drop and that crazy guy jump in the stadium . Ate too much and laughed a lot!
It was great

We had my sister with her kids over. She just got divorced and it's her first new year's eve without the kids. Her oldest daughter and my favorite is 13 and the twins are 5. My son is a pack-leader although is the youngest one. It was so loud and wild and they wouldn't go to sleep until eleven. I was down by 12:30. So different my NYE are now since I had a child.
