New Year's Eve

Our tradition for the past 8 years or so has been to spend New Year's Eve having a "family camp out" by the Christmas tree ~ with movies, popcorn, sparkling cider & goodies at midnight. Last year my sister and her family joined us and we decided it was super fun ~ so they came back this year, too! We watched movies, ate lots of fun food and played a couple of games . . . and stayed up entirely too late! (we were in the middle of a really good movie at midnight and couldn't just turn it off and go to bed!)

We loved having my sister's family here, but didn't get to have our traditional camp out by the tree . . . so we ended up doing that a few days later (before taking down our Christmas decorations). Not the best night's sleep, but sweet memories!
