Ever since we discovered one of the greatest joys a parent can experience during this time of year is actually sharing the countdown and seeing in the New Year with your kids.
We did it for the first time last year. Little party at home, playing Guitar Hero and having Grown Up and Little Grown Up Cocktails.
Playing games, giggling, watching TV, more games, more giggling.
This year they have spoken in awe of The Countdown as much as Christmas Day itself!
Mia has NO idea what it is, but there mere fact that it’s a day Dan has given capital letters is enough for her.
So I’ve snaffled this idea I saw on Pinterest for the photos, we’ve got The Michael Jackson Experience and Just Dance on standby and we’re ready.
I’m not big on New Year’s Resolutions truth be told, but in my head I have one wish and that is to be the best parent I can be. I owe that to my two at the very least.
I’ve also written a guest post over at Tesco Magazine online if you’re looking for some New Year Resolutions inspiration!
So from my family to yours, I wish you all all the very best for the New Year.
And a huge thank you to everyone who visited this blog or commented or offered the hand of friendship, or to those who just came to hang around.
I truly appreciate each and every one of you.
Wishing you all a fabulous 2012 x
I leave you with our year in photographs. Always so so many photographs!
