I got my midnight kiss from someone cuter then my husband this year, well I gave emoticon it to him as his head laid so close to mine. My grandson got the 12 o clock kiss from me this year. We went to bed at 11 but I was dozing on and off knowing my daughter was down the street at her friends house and would not be home until 12:30. I noticed the clock and kissed my sweet grandson who spent the night with me. I slept great at 12 30 once my daughter was home safe and sound. Happy New Year!

I slept through it...this holiday has been pretty relaxing. TOO relaxing actually because now I'm bored and very much looking forward to going back to work!

We were busy with games, dancing and watching stuff. I didn't notice when it was midnight. I saw the clock at 12:44 and realized we missed it. I went to sleep around 3AM.

Out by 10:30pm, but with all the fireworks going off I really drifted in and out of sleep and then some yahoo decides to do donuts in the parking lot with snow and ice. Nice Night!

My husband and I have been sick for days. He was asleep by 8 pm and I made it until about 11 pm. What makes it worse is that it was also my husband's birthday and we couldn't even celebrate. :(

I was awake, but I didn't watch it drop. I focused on the clock instead. It felt wrong without Dick Clark there.

I did! I stayed up watching a movie on Netflix with my kids-The Aristocats-which was over at 11:30. Before that, though, I read an end-of-the-year devotion and my mother and I prayed with them. I then poured some sparkling cider with them to toast in the New Year a little early-because it was 2013 already in other parts of the world. After the movie, I sent them to bed, and I took some Tylenol nighttime Multi-symptom cold medicine, and I don't remember much after that.
How did your evening go?
