  18. Lots of fab ideas here this morning Jen! I am not sure why, but New Years has never been a big deal for me. I think that's because with five kids I never got into the habit of going out on NY eve. (babysitters were far too expensive) and then I am a person that's always too tired to stay up until midnight! Iknow, I'm just an old fuddie duddie! Nevermind, I love you and wish you and your family the best New Year ever! xxoo
