We're staying here. On Christmas Eve, we're having lunch with MIL, step-FIL, and GMIL at GMIL's assisted living facility. Then we're going to my parent's house to have appetizers and cookies with my mom, dad, sister, BIL, and nephew. On Christmas day, all of those people are coming to our house for dinner. I'm looking forward to it.

Not sure of Christmas Eve yet. Some years we go to church and others we don't. My sister does Christmas day and she is having a total of 11 people this year.

We drive across town to my mom's/sister's for Christmas Eve. It's just family but we are a crowd. If everyone shows up we are 15 adults and 6 children. 5 of whom are under 5. Christmas Day is at our house this year with dh's side of the family. I'll make coffee cake and scrambled eggs at 10am for those who want to show up for breakfast. Otherwise, there will be a sandwich buffet for lunch. We could have 10 adults and 6 children through out the day.

I'm teaching on the morning of Christmas Eve. In the afternoon/evening we'll be having a White Elephant gift exchange at my aunt's house. We'll go back home to go to bed, wake up Christmas morning, have Joe "open" his presents, then go to my parent's house around mid-morning for more exchanging of presents. We'll probably just all hang out there for the day since all of my siblings will be in town and my mom likes having "her birds in the nest". LOL I don't know if dinner is in the plans, but I can't remember a Christmas where it wasn't.

I only have my mom on my side of the family who lives nearby. So, she is with us Christmas eve and day.


Christmas Eve we go to mass and to a friends house which we have been doing since my oldest was born. There are tons of adults and kids and Santa comes. However, this year we are cutting it short. This friend is now divorced and really bitter. Her kids have to go with her ex later on Christmas eve (first one) and she is going to be miserable. I do not feel like wrecking my Christmas. So, we will not stay as late.


Christmas day - my mom comes over really early and watches the girls open gifts. We ahve a big breakfast and the kids play (although this year they wanted a lot less toys) and we are going over my SIL's house with my dh's family. Her and I switch Christmases every year.

This is our first Christmas with the baby! We plan to have our own celebration with presents at our house in the morning, then head over to my parents' house as usual for the "big" celebration. My aunt and uncle are going to be in town as well, so it should be fun.
