Staying home with kids this Michigan New Years Eve?  You don’t need to spend a lot of money, as there are some pretty fun things to do on New Year’s Eve that don’t require high heels or hangovers!

  • Read a Christmas Book! Break out your box of Christmas books and get to it!  Maybe take turns reading aloud? 
  • Watch a fun Christmas movie or an epic series. Movie marathons are super fun — and a great way to count down the minutes if you and the kids have decided to stay up until the ball drops. Charlie Brown's Christmas, The Grinch, Harry Potter, Star Wars or Lord of the Rings is always fun! Grab the snacks!
  • Make Smores! Who doesn't love gooey marshmallows, crunchy graham crackers and melty sweet chocolate?
  • Melt some cheese for fondue! Let the dipping begin! Pretzels are our favorites! 

Join Chris and Sherry for New Years Eve

Well, we love going to dinner at Cafe Zinc at the H Hotel in Midland, Michigan. The restaurant is incredible, I mean isn't it gorgeous?  The desserts are house made and simply divine.  The service is well, outstanding, too. We really enjoy ourselves at the Cafe Zinc. 

Or, if you prefer, you can eat dinner in these lovely outdoor heated igloos!  Each igloos is very elegantly appointed with white table cloths, comfortable chairs and these super cozy fuzzy lap blankets.  

And the rooms and lobby at the H Hotel are lovely too!  It makes for a fantastic New Years Eve winter getaway!
