  6. In the last few years we haven't done much for New Years Eve.Really depends on what is going on around our neighborhood My son, Daughter-in-law and two grandkids may come over and they pop fireworks for awhile..We are invited to a New Years Eve party this year but not sure if we will go to that. And me being a little sick right now, we will probably just stay home. Wishing you and your family a Happy New Year!!

  7. Each year is a struggle for me to stay awake til midnight on New Years Eve! I stay home and watch the fireworks from my window they have each year in our little town. :-)

  10. Congrats to the winner! We will go out to dinner early with my sister, her husband, and some friends, and then come back to my house for snacks and games and ringing in the new year. Working on a Happy New Year banner to hang. Every year, either for New Year's Eve or Day I make Rice Krispies treats in the numerical shape of the new year. The grandkids love it!

    We go out to our fav. Italian restaurant ROSES and then have fun playing the WWI and watch movies.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Not sure what we will do this New Years. But staying home in front of the fire playing some board games or watching a movie sounds good to me.

    ReplyDelete
  15. We go to our friends, watch the ball drop and head for home and a good night's sleep. Very low key!

    ReplyDelete
  16. We usually like to stay home and have a family event. This year my kids are older and are heading to their sister's house for a party. We'll get a quiet night alone.

    ReplyDelete
  17. The only thing I do on New Years Eve is try to stay awake until midnight but that usually doesn't happen!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Hi Joy, for New Years eve, we used to party it up in a big way, but now, alas, with the hubby having MS, we now just make popcorn and find a good movie to watch together, unless we have to babysit the grands so our children can go out. Happyu New Year!!!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Usually have a quiet evening at home and watch the ball drop on tv of we can stay awake!

    ReplyDelete
  20. We always stay in on New Year's Eve as it's just safer. Other than that it's just curling up on the couch and flipping back and forth between the different New Year's Eve programs. ;o)

    ReplyDelete
  21. We like a quiet evening at home on New Year's eve. Sometimes we stay awake long enough to see in the New Year.

  23. We usually go to a friends house for dinner and fireworks but since New Year's Eve is on a Tuesday this week, we'll just stay home and probably watch tv. Nothing big this year.

    Usually we have a very quiet time--maybe family dinner during the day, but nothing special at night. And most of the time we don't stay up to watch the ball drop! Happy New Year!

    ReplyDelete
  25. We usually don't go out for New Year's Eve, but we do have a nice dinner, reflect on the year's past, enjoy our wine, and watch the ball drop at midnight......ready to face another year and all the joys and challenges it may bring. Happy new Year! We wish you only the best!

    ReplyDelete
  26. We grill steaks and potatoes for New Year's Eve. The kids get to pop some fireworks.

    ReplyDelete
  27. We aren't doing anything on New Year's Eve. I don't remember a New Year's Eve that we've done anything and gone out of the house. We usually let the kids have a party that had their friends sleep over. We didn't like to drive that evening at all. That way the kids would have something fun to do and everyone got home safely late the next morning. Call us old! :)

    ReplyDelete
  28. Hi Joy--this year we're actually going to a friends house for New Years. It's been years since we've done anything, we're real homebodies. Normally I'm in bed well before midnight! LOL. Thanks for the opportunity to win the create a friend cartridge. It's one I've been wanting since it came out. Have a wonderful New Year. hugs~~Patty

  30. We always stay in with the kids - watch movies, eat snacks, and play games. Not sure if my now 21 year old will stay home with us this year - will be a sad party if he doesn't :(

    ReplyDelete
  31. We have no plans as of now. We really just like to stay at home and relax and watch the ball drop.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Congrats Joyce!
    Thanks for the coupons.
    We usually stay home and have a low key celebration.

  41. Any family or friends who are not working come to our house where we play games, watch movies and snack until the ball comes down. Everyone holds a silver coin for luck, a piece of cabbage for health and a dollar bill for wealth at midnight. Then it is off to bed. Jill P. Manteca, CA

  44. The years we don't have a fire ban in our area, we buy extra fireworks and set them off on New Years. But that has been awhile. I guess I need to start buying them online.

  50. We'll be staying in for New Year's Eve. I think picking up take-out on the way home from work sounds like a plan to me and "maybe" watch the ball drop if we don't drop before it does. Happy New Year Joy!

    ReplyDelete
  51. Going to bed early New Year's Eve because I am going to a scrapbooking retreat for 5 days in Tyler tx on New Years d

    ReplyDelete
  52. We usually stay in and have game night or watch movies. We go to bed right after midnight. Happy New Year!

    ReplyDelete
  53. We used to get together with a group of friends but since we moved we are making new traditions I guess. The boys getting older and wanting to be with their friends puts a spin on it too. We'll see.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Go to bed early! LOL! Since having children I'm so exhausted I'm usually asleep long before the ball drops.

    ReplyDelete
  55. It really depends on the year. This year we're having a game-party and then I'm going to a singles' dance ;)

    ReplyDelete
  56. Congrats to the winner!!! We don't have a lot planned as of now. We have to take a trip (140 mil) to the airport earlier in the day for my son to head back to NY so maybe just go out to dinner! I am thinking it's gonna be an early night :( Sounds boring, I know! LOL!!

    Maybe craft...yay!! I am missing my room!

  61. I just LOVE that cartridge! It's on my wishlist. My family will be hanging out together at my in-laws house to celebrate the new season. We plan to stay the night (kids are able to sleep, and it's safer for everyone), then wake up in the morning to cut a Greek New Year's bread that has a quarter baked in it. Who ever gets the quarter will have good luck for 2014. Thank you for the opportunity and Happy New Year to you and your family!

  63. That looks like a great cartridge! We stay in for a quiet night, complete with snacks and bubbly, and watch the ball drop on TV. No crowds or cold weather to deal with! Happy New Year!

  65. Just discovered your site and subscribed as I'm getting back to scrapbooking and my Cricut which I've been missing. I LOVE your site. On New Year's Eve our family either hangs out at home watching a movie, or we all go to our city's First Night Celebration (lots of fun musical acts)....we are together and safe, either way. Thank you!

  66. We went to dinner with a few friends and came home and watched football and the ball drop!

  67. Well, Never one for New Years Resolutions, I am breaking tradition by actually making a couple! 1) Go to the gym--not only for myself but to help instill good habits in my daughter. 2) Be a better communicator with far-flung friends and family!

    Happy New Year, and thank you for all your giveaways! I love this cartridge!! :-)

  69. Thank you for the chance to win. Usually stay home on New Years Eve. 12 years of working in an ER on the New Years Eve will make you think twice about being out on that night.

  73. Watching the snow add up in the big mitten state. Really pretty out - great day to scrap. But have to shovel
    a path to the barn and to the bird feeders -- they are all looking at the house like they want something:) Plenty of white for pictures in Lulu..

  74. New Year's Eve - I think we were in bed by 9 pm. Not much partiers - just getting too old for that.

  76. The new stamps are really nice. I have a ton of scrapbooking to do for my grandchildren, and what would be really helpful would be all those new cuts on the Create A Friend cartridge. I would love to win it.
