I always enjoy a small gathering for New Years' Eve, but not sure what is going on this year. When it is just the hubster and I, he usually falls asleep before midnight. I like to stay up and watch the ball. When I was married before and my kids were young, we would always host a New Year's Eve party where everyone would bring their kiddies. We would play kiddie games until 10:30, then put all of the kids to bed in my boys rooms. Then, the adults would play games and shoot off guns and have a good time (all done without alcohol) then, we all would go to sleep and wake up the next morning and go out to breakfast. One year I hosted a Murder Mystery Party for New Year's Eve. That was fun! I turned my living room into a restaurant complete with small tables and even had two waitors in suits to wait on the tables. It was an 'All My Children' mystery. Everyone came dressed to play their part.
The boys used to want to stay with me on New Year's Eve, but now they have their own plans.
