Usually we are in Russia over the holidays but we aren’t going this year. My puppy is having surgery before xmas and will still be a conehead on new year’s eve. We will be home with him and my brother, his wife, and their boxer are coming over. I am not sure if any of my other siblings will invite themselves over but I hope not. I love my nieces and nephews and they will all be over on xmas eve but we just want to relax on new year’s eve! An evening with just adults and dogs will be nice.
How about you? Obviously we are not the partying type, so I am sure there are a lot more exciting plans out there 😛

@Daizy914: We did that last year but our party was very low key. I think we are actually 70, just trapped in young bodies, lol. I’d love to have more people this year but my puppy is grouchy when he has a cone on so I don’t want to stress him out.

- Wedding: August 2013 - Wynn Las Vegas
@Daizy914: Aw how fun! Good luck with your first hosting!
My Mother-In-Law and SIL are having a Las Vegas themed NYE party at theirs this year. I think they want everyone to relive the massive family trip to Vegas this summer for the wedding, it will be fun. Plus, I got to get a really cute costume for it. Love dressing up!

@MrsPanda99: Last year we did dinner and then champagne/ watching the ball drop at home. Going downtown is a nightmare, and so is driving later at night (one of the top drunk driving nights of the year). I love being home and cozy with our little fam after a nice dinner out!

No plans yet…..if we are lucky we will find something exciting to do (local pub/band, we know someone who sometimes has a black tie party on a boat……our town had a barn dance last year!) or we may end up watching DVD’s, playing games at a friends…….or if we are really, really lucky we may get to stay home by ourselves, drink champagne, eat our favorite foods and make the most of the late night!

- Wedding: May 2014 - Madison, WI
I have no idea yet for this year…the past like 6 years I have gone with my best friend to a yact club where her Darling Husband works and her parents are members for their party. They used to have a wonderful sit down dinner of steak and lobster, followed by a live band and dancing with champange at midnight. The past year though they stopped the dinner and just served heavy appitizers all night long, it was still fun and Fiance came with last year. However, this year I think I might be ready to do something different. Part of me would be just fine enjoying a night at home.

@MrsPanda99: Just spending it with FH. We are hoping that the weather is nice so that we can go skating downtown (outside) and see some of the celebrations. Otherwise if it’s too cold or snowing too much, we’ll stay inside with some hot drinks and just cuddle up and watch the party on TV. Very simple! My mom wanted us to come to her NYE party that she has every year, and I’ve never been interested in her party. It’s always people that only my parents know and I can’t relate to them. When I was still living at home I used to just hole up in my bedroom or the basement and watch TV.
Oh! Also my brother is coming to my place that night. He’s 15, autistic (so doesn’t do well with strangers – gets very nervous), and he told me he doesn’t want to be at “Mom’s stupid party”, lol.
FH and I just aren’t interested in staying up all night partying and getting as drunk as possible anymore. We’ve grown up a bit since graduating.

@MrsPanda99: Usually we go to a party but leave right after midnight because we’re exhausted, haha. But this year my SO might have to work, so who even knows.

I’m going to be in Monte Carlo, but I’m flying out the next morning. We’ll party earlier in the night and then wind down later so we don’t miss our flight.
