Family New Years

NewYears2018Collboration(5of61)My kids come everywhere with my husband and I, including date nights. With my hubby always busy working or fishing, every moment we get we spend as a family.ย Planning how we are spending our New Years is no exception!

I was beyond excited to be invited to join a few local mom bloggers to create a new years party that is easy to do yourself and uses items you can pick up at your local grocery store. None of this running around to 20 different places with your cranky kiddos, lets face it on the day you want to do errands, its the day no one wants to cooperate. I even found these a couple of pitchers and champagne flutes in the dollar store section of the the grocery store. Mega win!


With my husband having almost 12 years of sobriety, I love getting creative making fun drinks for all of us to enjoy.ย  For this celebration (also Christmas brunch), I have two different recipes that you can make from 5 ingredients.

NewYears2018Collboration(24of61)The moc Champagne was a huge hit with ALL 10 KIDS, they finished their drinks as fast as possible to get down to the raspberries. It was absolutely adorable.

Kid-Friendly Bubbly

equal parts juice, soda & gingerale. Top with raspberries

Holiday Punch

equal parts juice, soda & gingerale, splash with grenadine (can adjust the sweetness with grenadine)

note: for a less sweet tasting bevy, pour more soda then gingerale
