New Years Eve Date Night

This may be our first New Years Eve ever without the kids. My best friend has graciously offered to take all 3 kids along with her 2 and niece in order for Rob and I to have some time to ourselves. Each year we usually celebrate as a family with fondue and some champagne for Rob and I.  This year it’s going to be just us adults.

We aren’t the party goers and drinkers that we used to be.  We aren’t prepared to stand among thousands of other people in the cold to watch a ball drop.  We won’t don formal attire to champagne toast the stroke of midnight with a bunch of strangers at a club.  We will get a bite to eat, a couple drinks, laugh and talk and head home to just spend time together.  It’s been a rough year and we want to start the new one off on the right foot, start the year with good times, good memories and each other.

The kids will experience a livelier event with sparkly party hats, noise makers, confetti and sparkling cider in plastic flutes.  They might even make it to midnight!


  1. sounds like what we usually do too (and thats my bday hahaha & we still dont go out )

  2. Great news for you two! We have the offer on the table, but have actually not had dinner at home in a week, so I think we are going to hang close to home…

  3. GOOD For you guys. You deserved it! We always celebrate with the kids too…will be so weird when they are all grown up someday….soon enough…sigh.
