Aloha Friday #10

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

It is Aloha Friday! In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that people take it easy and look forward to the weekend.

Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response. If you’d like to participate, just post your own question on your blog and leave your comment below and link in Kailani’s blog. Don’t forget to visit the other participants! It’s a great way to make new bloggy friends!

This weeks question is:
Did you stay up to Midnight last night to ring in the New Year?  If so did you stay home or go to a party?

In the past we had Jeff's parents watch Ian and we went to a party.  This year we stayed in and had a mini party early with the kids.  I really tried to stay up until midnight, but fell asleep.  Oops.

We were planning on going to my parents today in PA, but we all have gotten a cold.  Runny noses suck!  It could be worse though.  On top of that, south of where we live (NY/PA state line) is predicted to get LOTS of snow today.

Happy New Year! We did stay awake. We went out for an early-ish dinner w. friends and came back home, put the lil one to bed and turned on the ball dropping about 5 mins before it fell. :)

Happy New Year to you and your family!
I did actually make it to about 11, but no one in the house made it till midnight! We did go out and meet friends until about 8 then spent the rest of the evening at home.
Hope your New Year is wonderful!

We went to my parents' house earlier in the evening but was home before midnight. Only my older daughter was able to stay awake till midnight. :-)

We went to a wonderful party that was right next door and rang in the New Year there. It was so easy getting home since all we had to do was walk out of their apartment and walk a couple of feet into ours!

Wishing you and your family all the best in the New Year!

LOVE your new header and new pictures!!! I am thinking of changing up a little....??? We went to my folks, which is always a party simply from the amount of ppl that show up!! I made it until midnight, but only one of my 3 children made it with me...and it was my 18 mo!! The night owl!! HA! Hope you are all feeling better...we have been fighting the runny nose battle and LOSING around here...this darn temp change is not good for the sinuses!! Hope this year is as great as your last!! xo

Sherry said...

WE went to our church for their Vision Night services until after midnight then came home and crashed. LOL! :D

Kiy said...

Happy New Year!

Answer: Nope, but then with Danger Girl now living with us, we rarely do. I think we made it to about 11 this year - which is amazing! We stayed home, tucked her in bed and just puttered around. Finally about 10 we went to bed and read for an hour. We are SUCH party animals! :)

BTW, love love love your new header (and if it's not new, well, it's new to me!). So so darling, really love it!

Cheers, Kiy

We all stayed up but just stayed home watching The Three Stooges marathon! Yes, we are party animals.

Muthering Heights said...

Ha!!

I stayed up until midnight, but just barely...my son is sick, so I haven't been sleeping well.

I'm such a party animal, aren't I??

Annette Piper said...

Nup, didn't make it to New Year - I rarely do these days!

Smellyann said...

Yes, we stayed up past midnight, and we stayed home as usual. I don't think I've ever gone anywhere on NYE!

Maria @ Conversations with Moms said...

Happy and Healthy New Year! I stayed up pretty late and woke up too early. Then I had to work the next day...ugh

Jean Stockdale said...

We babysit our grandchidren and then them spend the night so mom and dad could enjoy a night out with church friends.

Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. We got so tickled over Grasyon thinking I was saying,"Cheeks," instead of "cheese." Of course the strong reaction he received from all of us only encouraged him to continue the action!!!

We at the Stockdale household had a glorious Christmas celebrating the birth of the Lord Jesus Christ. We trust you and yours enjoyed it as well and bless you with a wonderful New Year!

Nichol said...

No partying here. We watched movies and ate junk food. I went to bed at 12:01am. Happy New Year

Kimberly said...

Hope the kiddos are feeling better. I didn't stay up. I've just been so tired lately. The kids and DH did though, but then DH missed the ball drop on tv during a potty break with the kids. LOL. He was NOT happy. :)

Ji said...
