    We are hanging around the house eating seafood and party foods and watching movies. I just don't feel like going out, spending a ton of money and waking up hung over on the first day of the New Year! Even my dd's 19 and 20 and their friends are just hanging out at either our house or their friends. They don't want to fight the crowds at the local bars. We might go and watch the fireworks display at 9:00 p.m. tonight, but other than that we won't be venturing far. And we'll probably be watching Regis drop the ball at midnight.

    What is everyone else doing?

    We're heading out of town to my DB's and then with another couple we'll all be (trying) to bowl! :rolleyes: Before and after our attempt at bowling we'll be munching away on appetizers and goodies then the traditional champagne toast at 12. :flower1:

    Happy New Year Pooh! :Pinkbounc

    My DH,DS(13) and I will be staying home also. We usually watch **** Clark in Times Square for the countdown, but this year, I have heard that Regis Philbin is hosting the countdown (because **** Clark has had a stroke).

    I am also going to enjoy some "goodies" before midnight, as I want to start dieting to lose a few pounds before I head to WDW at the end of February.

    HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!!! :cheer2:

    We are heading over to B & SIL's for a quiet get together. Does anyone else get the feeling that New Years Eve has just become another night and it is not the must to event of the year anymore??

    Have a fun, safe, very Happy New Year's everyone!! :) :)

    I saw on last night's news that you guys were getting hammered out there! Hasn't the snow stopped yet?

    Not to rub it in or anything, but here it's a balmy (record breaking?) 50F out!!! Amazing! :) We'll probably pay for it in a couple of days.... :duck:

    DH is outside BBQ'ing some steaks and we've rented 3 DVD's to watch on our new home theatre system that we bought during the Boxing Week sales. We're probably not going to make it til midnight though. We usually don't!! We're so boring. My DH is on the Ski Patrol and he has to be up at 6:30 am to patrol tomorrow morning and I still have my lovely migraine that I have had for months so I can't stay up that late without it getting much worse!! My DS10 really wants to stay up though, so we'll see if we can stay up for him at least!

    Snowwark -- you read our mind. We are having steak and lobster tails (frozen though). No alcohol though as the medication I'm on and alcohol don't mix. :crazy: Darn that -- no extra airmiles for me I'm afraid.

    Just staying in and watching movies. DS isn't feeling well so he isn't going out either.

    Will hopefully make it til midnight but who knows.

    We are also very boring!! Staying in, eating muchies, and watching the Live Aid Concert DVD that DH got for Christmas. DD, 13, will finally see some of the great bands of all time perform live. Up early tomorrow to finishing packing and off to Disney Sunday morning.

    Happy New Year

    Both boys have plans with their friends, I have a couple of movies to watch along with some munchies. Dh will probably be snoring long before midnight as he's tired from returning late last night from a 3 day business trip. :rolleyes:

    I'm more looking forward to our tradition of NY's Day Brunch at the Elm Hurst Inn, in Ingersoll.

    Happy New Year, everyone!
