What a whirlwind 3 days! We spent Christmas Eve Day with my MIL & FIL and went to Christmas Eve church service with them. Then we headed to my parent's home where we spend the night and Christmas Day with my side of the family. Then we packed up everything after Christmas Dinner and head back over to DH's parent's home for dessert and presents with his parent's, his sister & BIL and my niece and nephew. Then we came home around 10pm and put Mak to bed and openned our gifts to each other. This morning with openned the gifts that we gave Mak (since she went straight to bed last night), and then this afternoon we had our Christmas with DH's extended family (i.e. grandmother, aunts, uncles & counsins). My head is spinning just thinking of everything we did these past few days.

Mak was spoiled beyond belief. She even had 5 wardrobe changes between Christmas Eve night and Christmas Day. It was like a baby model show since my family gave her so many Christmas outfits! My mother has 18 Christmas trees and each one of us had a tree to put our gifts to each other under. We spent our morning travelling from tree to tree throughout the house, and finished up in the family room where my parent's gave out their gift to all of us. It was a great Christmas but I'm soooo tired!
