we usually do the drive like wild animals to somebody else's house game, but this year we're staying here for Christmas. DH starts days on the 25th, so we're doing everything on the 24th, the kids won't know the difference anyhow.
Night of the 23rd we'll have snacks and open their xmas eve gift of jammies. Santa will make an appearance in the window.
"Christmas" morning, the kids will wake to presents under the tree in their room, they'll do a treasure hunt that Santa left for them, then we'll go downstairs to the main tree and open stockings and gifts. We'll do a nice breakfast, turkey dinner at 2pm, and we've got tickets for Christmas mass for 4pm that day.
I'm not sure if any of my family will be here, maybe.
I can't wait! Its our first Christmas ever in our own home!
Marie, I want to go to your Christmas! That sounds like sooo much fun.
The only thing that stays the same for us every year is opening one present each on Christmas Eve and then opening the rest on Christmas morning. The families change when they want to do their Christmas' every year so I'm not sure where we're going and when. No one's called us yet (I don't think dh's family is very happy about the baby) and my mom is waiting to find out when they are going to schedule my stepdad's surgery.
