We’ve set the bar high for New Year’s Eve celebrations. Before Zack and Kyle came along we did things like reserve a room at a fancy hotel and party it up until the wee hours. We’ve gone to Hogmanay in Edinburgh, Scotland, had game nights with friends, fancy dinners, pub crawls and all sort of fun stuff that we did before I became a perpetually tired person who considers herself fancy if she wears mascara and lipstick at the same time. A family friendly New Year’s Eve celebration is a whole different ball game. Today, I’m talking about Family Friendly New Years Eve Activities and thinking there’s about a 50-50 chance I won’t be snoozing on the couch wrapped in my snuggie by the stroke of midnight.
But that’s okay.

Family friendly New Years Eve activities while I’m in yesterday’s sweats and a snuggie watching movies on my couch? Winning.
