McLinky Monday - New Years Traditions

The RHOK

Today on The RHOK, Mrs. Priss wants to know how we spend our New Years Eve...
how we ring in the New Year...
She asked,
Do you stay up until midnight?

Do you get together with friends?

Do you have any New Year's Eve or New Year's Day traditions?

Did you make a list of resolutions?

Did you eat black-eyed peas?

Well, Mrs. Priss, let me tell you, we are Party Animals...witha capital "P" and "A".

If you consider staying at home playing a mean game of Guess Who being a Party Animal,

or watching Ryan Seacrest and NKOTB on television being a Party Animal,
OR seeing the ball drop in Time Square from the comfort of your couch being a Party Animal,

OR toasting with Sparkling White Grape Juice (OK, and maybe a little champagne for those of us who are over 6) in fancy glasses being a Party Animal...


OR popping poppers out your front door and blowing horns and wearing shiny hats and yelling HAPPY NEW YEAR over and over and over being a Party Animal...

then, yeah we're Party A-N-I-M-A-L-S.

We also eat LOTS of black eyed peas.  I just ate some that were left over for lunch today.  We also make resolutions and talk about new goals for the new year.

I think it's a consensus around our house this year...#1 resolution...FINISH THE HOUSE!

I also have the revolving resolutions, you know the ones that are there EVERY year...lose weight, be healthier, save money...blah, blah, blah.

Here's to more happiness, opportunities, open windows, good cups of coffee, great books, ingenious ideas, witty inventions, health and prosperity.

Hope 2011 is your best year yet!

So, how do you ring in the New Year?

Stop by and let us know at The RHOK!

Shut up right this second. That was the cutest thing EVER in the whole wide world. I just love your little party animals. And when I say love I mean LOVE SO MUCH IT IS INSANE! : )

Wow, you are slightly more of a party animal than I am! :) I mean, your lil boy isn't even wearing a shirt! He's topless!!
Mine were in their underwear though...and we were in bed watching Mater's Tall Tales. Does Isaiah love Cars?? He's the perfect age...
Oh, and I was up straightening up my refrigerator at midnight. I ROCK! lol

i saw NKOTB, too...had pretty horrific flashbacks of my high school years - not a way to ring in the new year!

You did more than me! My kids were in bed by 9 and Levi and I barely made it to midnight!

You guys are wild and crazy. Looks like a really fun way to ring in the New Year. My mom always had sparkling grape juice for me...memories. Here's to finishing the house.

I love Guess Who!
I see your son has issues with wearing shirts. Our youngest has this same problem. Brrr.

brainella said...

Asleep by 11:30. Yeah, I know. :)

Lisa said...

You take amazing pictures... I was telling my husband about it the other day. You can look at things and see them differently that I can.

Glad your NYE was better than mine :)

We celebrated on New Years Day with great food, Champagne, wine, cupcakes and ice cream!
