The ONLY List that Matters

We never have been big partiers. Well, I haven’t at least. Our new year’s eve normally consists of movies, popcorn, food, and just spending time together as a family. We will watch some sort of countdown as well the closer it gets to midnight. I enjoy the peaceful evening that leads up to midnight. It is much different than the energy that Christmas brings.

Last night we watched YouTube videos of other countries ringing in the new year and all I can say is, WOW!!!! The firework displays were breathtaking. Watch England’s firework display and you will NOT be disappointed.

In the last few years, we have added a fun list to make together as a family. We all sit down and think of things that we want to do as a family. It can be places to see, things to do, or anything. I told them to think big and think small. It’s fun to see what my kids come up with to put on the list.

Do you do anything special for new year’s eve?
