If I had children... put them in their kennels.

Worry about what the older ones are doing (which is what I was doing at their ages) and watch movies/play games with the squirt. He's got his snacks and kiddie champagne lined up so he's all ready.

Probably do some firecrackers on the deck at midnight. (No neighbors close enough to bother and we're not in Lawrence, so it's all good.)

My unfertilized ovum will accompany me to a party, where they will remain unfertilized, thank you very much.

If we have no Cheerios®, then we will just be playing a family game of beer pong. We will just wait and see.

We are having my niece over to stay the night with our kids so her mommy and daddy can go out or stay in, whatever works for them. We're planning lots of games, crafts, junk food, fun, and of course sparkling grape juice!! I hope all of you who are going out are safe and if needed take advantage of the Tipsy Taxi!!

The lemurs will start doing Jell-O shots as soon as the sun goes down. (insert deity name) alone knows what they'll be up to by midnight.

Mumbly-peg, target practice, and teach them what horrible, horrible people lawyers are.

We play Pin the Horns on the Lawyer.

Off to the closet with a box of cheerios, a gallon of water, and a pail for the lot of them. Mama's got a squeeze box, Daddy never sleeps at night.

Oh, the kids. They'll be having fun. Hansel and Gretel will finally get to meet their aunt who lives in the wood. I hear from my estranged woodland sister that they'll be baking! MMM! Cookies, I presume!~)

I'm going out NYE to find the future daddy of my children that don't exist yet. But thanks for asking!

They are on their for me, a nice quite supper, a couple of drinks and go to bed. I'll read about the rest in the next day's paper.

I'm sure they have their own plans.

We've found a great "first night" family-oriented event not too far from here. Enough kids activities to keep them busy for hours. No alcohol. Lots of music. And a good fireworks display at midnight. Our kid is four now and this will be his fourth year at the event.
