GIVEAWAY: All Hail King Julien…this New Year's Eve!

My New Year's Eve celebrations, before kids, used to consist of a late dinner, followed by dessert, followed by a night of dancing and drinking with my cousins at the "it" nigh club of that year, in Mexico City.  We'd get to the club late and leave early…..at 7am.  And while those says are looooong gone now that I have kids, I must admit, I'm a little glad about that.  There's NO WAY that I could EVER stay up until 7am without falling over in severe exhaustion.  My NYE's now consist of an early dinner, board games and putting the kids to bed, watching my husband asleep on the couch by 8:30pm, and me celebrating NYE alone, while watching the east coast feed at 9pm.



Tonight, I will be changing things up a bit.  After dinner with family,  I'm planning on letting the boys stay up a little past their 8pm bed time, and we'll be hosting our own countdown, just the four of us, with one special guest: King Julien.  The new Netflix animation picture, All Hail King Julien,  will have a special feature today.  King Julien, of Madagascar fame, will host his own three-minute countdown, available for streaming so that kids, too, can enjoy the NYE countdown without having to stay up late to watch the ball drop. Basically, I will be tricking my kids into thinking they're staying up really late and doing what the adults do, but I will control the time the countdown happens.  BRILLIANT idea, if you ask me!  Because there's music and fun included in the countdown, we'll have a mini dance party, cheer with chocolate milk in fancy glasses and eat Oreo's before bed!  I can't wait!! The boys will love it, and I will love the early (but late, for them) bed time on this special occasion.



In fact, I am so excited about this, that I am giving away a 1-year Netlix Streaming subscription!!!  AWESOME, right?!  All you have to do is enter below!!!  What better way to start 2015, than with FREE Netflix Streaming for a whole year?!   {Giveaway ends on 1/3/15 and I will announce the winner on 1/4/15}  Happy New Year, friends!!!!  I hope 2015 is full of happiness and love for you and your families.
