It seems like every year for New Years Eve we've had several parties to be at or plan. Our teens are usually at dances, Trek & I usually have a house full of people, & the kids are usually watching movies until they pass out at 9.
This year was completely different. There wasn't a teenage New Year's Dance & we decided to make New Year's a family togetherness affair. We didn't go anywhere, we didn't throw a party, we bonded as a family unit & had a BLAST doing it.
We got 9 new Board Games for Christmas (amazing games) & we played as many as we could until midnight struck. Some the younger kids could play (Jumangi, Yeti in My Spaghetti, Connect 4, Disney Codenames, & Loteria), one Taya could join the older kids in (Harry Potter Clue), & the others were for the 4 oldest (Villainous, Hail Hydra, & Thanos Rising). We never got to play Villainous or Hail Hydra because that Thanos Rising game took THREE HOURS & we LOST. It's HARD, but a blast. Thanos took out all our heros in one devastating swoop & it was kind of sad. But it was fun playing as our favorite heros (Cap. America, Loki, Thor, Dr. Strange, etc.). The geek genes run strong in our family. ha ha ha.
At midnight we opened up some sparkling cider & toasted the new year all together as a family. I wouldn't have had it any other way. I love these people.
Happy New Year.
May 2019 bring happiness, fun, & many more adventures for the Potter family.
