New Year's Eve 2014

We had no expectations (or desires) that the girls would stay up until midnight to ring in the new year. Even I wasn't planning on staying up.
Despite this, we still wanted to do something fun that the girls would enjoy and would give us a chance to talk about how fun the year was. 
So we spent the morning cleaning the flat so that we could party in the evening in a nice clean space. We put the Christmas decorations away and did the dishes and rearranged the playroom/ guest room. 

Then for dinner we ordered in fish & chips. The right way. The British way. With gravy on the fish and salt and vinegar on the chips. I don't know if I'll ever be able to eat fish & chips another way again. 
Then we decorated chocolate cupcakes, and made noisemakers and princess crowns. We talked about all of the things we did last year and what our favorite parts were. Then we talked about what we want to do next year and where we want to go. (The twins want to learn how to juggle and they want to go to Paris.)

Then we had a dance party to some of our favorite songs from 2014- All About the Bass, Rude, and Shake it Off. It was dorky and full or terrible dancing but lots of fun and giggles too. 

We counted down to the new year at 8:15 and then the girls went to bed. And then we took a selfie, watched some Brooklyn 99 (Seriously one of the funniest shows I've seen!) and then we went to bed. Dallin happened to be awake til midnight and heard the fireworks, but I was fast asleep. Snore.

Hey, the title didn't say "The most exciting New Year's Eve ever" did it?

  1. It's official. I'm obsessed with your adventure. I have gone back through your blog WAY farther than is socially appropriate and I am IN LOVE with the fact that you're in Scotland, having wild European times. I mean, you live in a city I've only visited with the help of Ticket to Ride. That's amazing. Thanks for the vicarious thrills that I will now be having through you!
