But this year we were talking about going to a early dinner and going to the movies to see "Marley & Me", then head home.
Heads up, JustMe, on the "Marley" movie. A friend of mine, big macho guy, said he cried like a baby. Said everyone in the theater was crying.

Bring tissues.

We usually stay home, either watch dvd movies or go to sleep by 10 or 11 .

We stay home. We usually have a nice dinner and some bubbly. Think we're going to pick up some ribs from Montgomery Inn this year for dinner. The past few years, I haven't been able to stay awake until midnight - I'm getting old, I like to ring in the new year while catching up on my zzzzzzs.

You could always drive up here and bring the fondue! Then we can all sit around eating fondue watching movies and playing board games till after midnight..

We just have some snacks, play some games, watch a movie or two and have a couple of light drinks, that is about it. Funny thing is the kids love playing poker with me more than they like playing the board games, LOL!

If it wasn't a 400-mile drive, I'd take you up on it, Buddy!

We do different things, depending on who's in town. Usually have a nice dinner at home with some champagne, sometimes make it to midnight and sometimes not. Sometimes we go downtown around 11 p.m. for the midnight fireworks.

Sometimes we go out and sometimes we stay in. The last couple of years we have been staying in. This year my folks may come over, maybe play some games or something, big breakfast in the morning. We are going out to dinner the next night though.

Of course they do! My sister and I felt the same way when our parents played Blackjack with us (betting toothpicks). We were playing a grown-up game with grown-ups. It didn't get better than that!

For the kids I went and got a set of poker chips so we don't have to use pennies again this year, LOL.
OK, I get em for the big kids too!
