McLinky Monday-Ringing in the New Year

Once again it's that time of the week for McLinky Monday with the Real Housewives of Oklahoma.  I'm starting to really look forward to it every Monday so I can see what all the other Okies ladies have to say and the one from TX too!
The question of the week is, "How do YOU ring in the New Year?"  Well, we normally have a New Year's Eve party every year and invite friends and family to come over enjoy fondue (chocolate and cheese) and play games.  The past 2 years haven't gone as planned, last year Kevin passed out at our front door and to read more about that click here.  This year we are in the middle of painting and packing so we decided against a party but hopefully next year we will be in our new house and will have a wonderful New Year's Eve party!
A couple of things that we always do is stay up until midnight, watch the ball drop, let the kids do a toast with fancy glasses and sparkling cider, and we always have fondue.  I know it's a huge tradition to make black eyed peas and eat them on New Years Day but I've NEVER had them before.  I bought some this year and didn't get around to making them.  I need a good recipe!

Here are some of my posts from past year's
