With two little boys under 4, we are going to pick out a bunch of movies – some for them, some for us – pull out some freezer meals and stay in all day. If we can make it to midnight, we’ll watch the ball drop, but these days, we’re asleep by 10!

403
Kristin December 31, 2010 at 9:28 am

Oh what a wonderful giveaway! I have no idea what to do tonight. I am never really a fan of New Year’s Eve because I tend to reflect on what I want to change in the new year instead. I wanted to go out somewhere special for once but we will probably stay home again this year. Happy New YEAR everyone. I cannot believe it is 2011 already!

404
Kristi K. December 31, 2010 at 9:28 am

We always do a family night in for New Year’s Eve. We usually light the fire pit and roast marshmallows after dinner then we snack and drink sparkling apple cider while we wait for the ball to drop. Then it is off to bed to get ready for more celebrating and a big dinner on New Year’s Day.

405
AmyMae December 31, 2010 at 9:28 am

We’re going over to my sister in laws house. My husband’s on call for work, so we’ll be close to home :)

406
Kathy December 31, 2010 at 9:28 am

Tonight I will be staying home with my husband and two grown sons. We are having friends over earlier in the day, but as for the stroke of midnight, it will just be us. To tell the truth, I will probably be in bed and the “boys” will celebrate without me!!!

407
Kim R December 31, 2010 at 9:28 am

I will be spending tonight with the 2 cutest lovebugs! My sweet baby girl and boy! We will be toasting (with sparkling cider…they’re only 6 & 3)around 8 o’clock! I’m thinking we’ll record the ball dropping and watch it drop in the morning…that still counts right? ;)

408
sheila December 31, 2010 at 9:29 am

416
Laura Conlon December 31, 2010 at 9:30 am

I will be spending the evening with a group of friends and ending the night with family. This year will be a big year so ending this one with family by my side means I will start 2011 off the same.

417
Brenda December 31, 2010 at 9:30 am

I’m in the gorgeous Northern Rockies of Montana. I’ll be sitting by the fire and relaxing. We have a Monopoly game out and are thinking of starting a marathon game.

418
Ann Daly December 31, 2010 at 9:30 am

419

420

426
Lois Hartwell December 31, 2010 at 9:32 am

We’re having a “Wine & Sweats” evening. Making dinner with two dear friends, doing our weekly Bible study, enjoying some good wine, then hanging out till the big “ball drop”. AND wearing our relaxing clothes – sweats for the guys, yoga pants for the girls!

427
Victoria December 31, 2010 at 9:32 am

I will probably be at my computer when the ball drops finishing up on getting everything complete for my taxes. All the while, my kiddos are fast asleep and my husband is out of town working! If that doesn’t sound like fun I don’t know what is?! ha! And I may actually like to cook if I win this set!!! My current set is pitiful, not to mention old! Thanks for this giveaway-Happy New Year!

428
Theresa December 31, 2010 at 9:32 am

I used tonight as an excuse to clean the basement…and let out 15 yr old have his band mates over for the night :) Hubby & I get to sit upstairs – alone – watch a movie and have some champagne…so, not much different from our usual Friday night…except with a clean-and loud- basement :)

Happy New Year everyone!

429
Ruth December 31, 2010 at 9:33 am

Kevin & Amanda,
My husband and I are spending New Years Eve 2010 the best possible way EVER!! My darling father is losing his battle to cancer. We are going in to sit with him and my mother until we need to get him into bed. Then my wonderful husband is going home to be with our kids and I get to bring in the New Year by staying overnight by my dad’s bedside. How blessed am I? It breaks my heart fiercely to know I will no longer get to be with him, but he is truly the winner..Heaven bound.

Blessings to you both in 2011.

Ruth

430
Lisa W December 31, 2010 at 9:33 am

431
Pam December 31, 2010 at 9:33 am

What a great giveaway!! We will be going to dinner with friends. The roads have been icy, so we will probably make sure we get home early enough to watch the ball drop at home and welcome in 2011!

432
Sarah White December 31, 2010 at 9:34 am

We will be relaxing and staying up to watch the ball drop tonight. :)

Tonight, my husband and I will be celebrating our first new year as a married couple! We are skipping the party scene and enjoying it at home together. We plan to cook a great dinner and rent movies to watch until the ball drops! Then, we will probably go right to sleep because we never stay up that late! :)

440
Jamie December 31, 2010 at 9:34 am

My daughter and I love to cook together so this would be an awesome prize. I rarely go out NYE but tonight I get to take my mom and daughter to see the Beach Boys compliments of my brother who used to play with them years ago. So excited to celebrate with family.

444
Halle December 31, 2010 at 9:35 am

We’re celebrating in a way we never have before, a dear friend’s wedding!
Lots of people scoffed at my friend Katie for having a NYE wedding celebration, but to me it makes perfect sense for so many reasons!
One, everyone (including me) is always looking for something to do on New Yer’s Eve. Two, we’re celebrating with a huge bunch of people we love (so not easy to organize other under circumstances)! And Three, it’s at a hotel, so everyone has a safe place to stay, and party the night away.
I am so looking forward to it!
Happy New Year Everyone :)

445
Liz Gerstung December 31, 2010 at 9:35 am

My husband and kids and I have gone bowling from 5-8 every year for the past 4 years…we LOVE it! The bowling alley has a countdown at 8 and everything. So much fun! A bunch of friends and neighbors come (over 90 kids alone this year!) and we have a blast!

I hope that everyone has a Happy and Blessed New Year!

455
Audrey December 31, 2010 at 9:37 am

Our tradition is to celebrate NYE with my best girlfriend and her husband. It’s also our “Christmas” celebration with them. We usually stay in, eat bad things, have a drink or two, and almost never last to midnight – the downside of getting old. :-P

456
Sarah P. December 31, 2010 at 9:37 am

I will be staying in tonight babysitting my 20 month old nephew and my 1 month old neice so that their parents can get a much needed and deserved night out. Should be fun ringing in the new year. I’m sure Chase will sleep through it, Aubrey on the other hand will probably not, still an unpredictable sleeper =)

457
Donna December 31, 2010 at 9:37 am

Tonight we will sit all together as a family and watch some tv shows and play some games. Hopefully, we will all make it to midnight. The little one bought the party blowers for midnight! Then we will all wish each other a Happy New Year and crawl into bed ready to begin 2011!

Happy New Year everyone!

490
chelsea alexander December 31, 2010 at 9:44 am

A few friends are in town visiting who wanted to see everyone they miss since they moved away. We’re putting together a little shindig that should be a great way to ring out the old and in the new.

Thanks for a great giveaway!

491
Michelle G December 31, 2010 at 9:44 am

We have friends and neighbors over every year, including all of the kids. We play games and eat all night long. The television is turned on at 11:45 to watch the ball drop and everyone gets a glass of champagne to toast with! Even the kids get their own bottles of sparkling grape juice!

497
Sandy December 31, 2010 at 9:45 am

499
Herb December 31, 2010 at 9:46 am

Strange thing, but I don’t like New Years, it’s sad for me. I will be in bed trying to get to sleep before the ball drops. The last time I stayed up was 1966.

500
