Well, it's here folks! We survived the Apocolypse date, and now we are getting set to ring in the New Year! Excitement abounds here at our house!
The kids want to try and stay up until midnight to bring in the New Year. We have not done this before because I get up and at it around 4:30 a.m. and keep going until about 8:30, at which time I crash. Daddy is up at 6:00 a.m. to get to work for half a day, and he is able to stay up until 11:00 or so, but there is no guarantee. The kids have never, never made it past 10:00 p.m.. This could get very interesting.
I bought them the movie "Mall Cop" ($5.00 at Wal*Mart), and we bought snacks, and there's always the countdown. Perhaps we will make it, but I am not holding out much help.
Hubby has been checking around the neighborhood, and it seems like most of the neighbours are staying in tonight. Mom might even come over and have a little fun with us, if her dance card has been cancelled.
I will let you know how things go!
