DH and I will be supervising the party my 16 year old son will be having so no big, exciting plans for us. We are actually thrilled because we then know they are safe and sound in our home. :banana:

I need to live vicariously through TUGGERS....what fun things are the rest of you planning?

We will be babysitting our 6-week old granddaughter on New Year's Eve, while mommy and daddy go out for the evening. :banana: Our sweet Olivia will stay for a sleepover. (Only Grandma won't get much sleep!)

We'll take her across the street to our neighbours for the evening, but I'm not sure if we will stay until midnight.

Dear friends (neighbors) are coming over. No one has to drive. My 20 year old stepdaughter is visiting her mom (she lives with us). We told her the one time - stay over or be home by 7pm. Stay off the roads and stay alive. You wouldn't want to miss your next vacation!

Happy New Year all!:hi:

DH and I are going to a party in a mansion on the beach. It really is a mansion and they luckily did NOT invest with Madoff although I understand some of the other guests did - guess what topic I'm not going near :ignore:
It is really pretty close to our house - just up a ways and over the bridge to the barrier island. They do a nice party with nothing terribly elaborate and don't dress way up there if ya know what I mean. Linda

We gave serious thought to driving up to Pasadena and camping on the street for the Rose Parade. I just couldn't get the hubby excited about the idea. Instead, we'll spend the evening at home ... but booked reservations at a local gem mine for New Years Day. We'll be digging and sifting through tailings for Tourmaline and other goodies. Hi-Ho, Hi-Ho ... it's off to work we go!

DH & DS are going fishing in the Gulf (half-day) and I'll drive to our oldest DD's house and we'll all have supper together when the 'boys' get home.(probably NOT fish..although I know they'll catch some) and then come home. Middle DD has to work at the Fresh Market in Bonita until closing and DS has to go to work @ Publix the next morning, so it will be an early evening for all.

Our street in Sun City has a progressive dinner. We have the main course so I'm busily cleaning house and making my grocery list. We only have 15 folks participating this year, but it will be a relaxing fun time. We then have a luncheon in the neighborhood Thur at noon. The "Dawgs" play at 1 so if things are too hectic at the luncheon we may have to make it a short stay. Our friends know we are Dawg nuts so everyone will understand.

We will be babysitting our 11 yr old grandson and his 9 yr old sister. Thank goodness the 9 yr old outgrew Candyland and Chutes and Ladders. On to better games.:whoopie: Will probably have them thru the weekend.

Going to DH's office party this afternoon. My first cake stuck to the pan so I had to bake something else.

My 17 year old daughter is having a small New Year's Eve party at our house. It's become a tradition - one of the boys called earlier in December to make sure it was still on. Because of disabilities, her friends often don't get invited to parties, so they especially like that we host one for New Year's Eve.

For the last several years, we've had one daughter's party in the basement, and the youngest's on the main floor. Fun times. But the oldest is in Rome for her January term now, so we'll miss her friends being here.

New Year's Eve we'll be at a small party (probably around 20 people) at the sailing club. We all bring steaks and potatoes and a dish to share. My traditional is English trifle which I can't eat this year because I am gluten free. Of course, happy hour before dinner.

New Year's Day brings the annual men's brunch and, boy, do they ever get into it. DH makes French toast. So far, I know they'll have eggs, pepper bacon, ham and biscuits. Mimosas for sure.

The sailing club got a one year extension to stay at our present location. This could be our last year but who knows............

We sit around the wonderful fireplace and/or play games. Mexican Train has been a favorite.

Hanging out with my brother in law and sister in law at there house. Another sister in law may show up as well. The 5 of us plan to just hang out and eat good food. We bought a bunch of finger foods (appetizer stuff) from Sam's Club to bring over. We'll all stay there.

We are going to dinner with a few friends at a local restaurant and then to a small place that has a live band and we'll dance awhile. Don't know how late we will stay.....depends on the music and loudness. DH loves to dance but hates it if it is so loud you can't talk with friends! We normally are home by midnight now that we are in the senior catagory!!

We are walking down the street to a neighbor's and having chili, cheesecake and champagne. I hope we can get up early enough next year to finish doing some painting at our cabin in the woods. That would get the year off to a good start.

I love to play Mexican Train!

Gig.

It's somebody else's New Year's Eve gala, not ours, but for a while this evening I'll be playing horn as a member of The Potomac Brass Quintet [of Virginia], at a retirement community out in Reston VA.

The 1-hour gig starts 7PM, so there will be plenty of time to come back & greet the coming of the new year at home with The Chief Of Staff.

All Puckered Up With No Place To Blow.

Shux, after fixing a compact stackable clothes dryer all day (burnt-out heating element), I showered & shaved & dressed in tux & packed up my horn & my book of tunes & drove on out to the retirement home where I expected to perform with my fellow brass quintet members for an hour or so.

The Chief Of Staff got dressed up & went with me, for companionship on New Year's Eve as much as for (another) chance to hear the tunes.

We got there a minute or so after the 2 trumpet players arrived & went right in in. The tuba player & trombonist were still on the way.

Waiting for us in the lobby of the retirement home was a staffer who told us -- to our great surprise -- that the event for which we were to perform had been canceled. A flu scare or some such made it inadvisable for the residents all to congregate in such close company for an hour, so they 86d all the planned New Year's Eve festivities, including our scheduled gig.

It would have been nice if they'd got on the phone before we cleaned up & packed up & showed up. Sheesh.

So The Chief Of Staff & I got back in the car & came home. We had supper with The Chief Of Staff's sister & our brother-in-law & good friends of theirs we've known 10 years or so. Then we loaded a DVD in the machine & watched Nicole Kidman in a remake of Invasion Of The Body Snatchers.

Now we're sitting around in the family room -- The Chief Of Staff viewing a J-Lo movie on cable TV & the old man typing on the electric computer.

Is this a great country or what ?

Happy New Year, everybody.

Well, we didn't have any big plans and it's a good thing too. Just came back from the emergency room where we spent the last 7 hours having 25 stitches put in my youngest son's hand. He got his pinky finger caught in a metal gate playing with his neighborhood friends. I think the rest of the evening we will just lay low.

OMG - that's a LOT of stitches for a pinky finger! Poor kiddo, hope he'll be ok.

We're in Williamsburg too (Hi Holly!), at Kings Creek, enjoying relaxing in our quiet upstairs unit with a (fake) fire and DVDs, after enjoying our restaurant.com dinner out. It's also my son's 19th Bday. We just watched all the freezing people in Times Square - couldn't believe that someone they interviewed had been out there since 11 AM! Brrrrrrrrr.
