At first I thought that I would get totally overwhelmed and stressed about doing 12 straight days of blogging but I realized that I don’t need to add any more stress to this time of year and have completed this on my own time. I really have been enjoying it though…..thanks Karen for tagging me!
Today’s theme: Who will be sitting with you for Christmas Dinner
There are many joys and woes of living in the same state and city as your family and in-laws.
-You are never alone on a holiday.
-You get to see everyone and enjoy the spirit of the holiday with some many people.
-You get to eat more than once…..maybe even 3 times including dessert!
-You HAVE TO go see everyone on the holiday.
This makes for a very long day for us. Outside of celebrating with our immediate family (me, hubby and kiddies), we have to go to the in-laws house and then to me parents. Our holidays usually start really early and end really late and at the end I am exhausted.com!!!
To answer the theme question of the day……at our Christmas dinner tables we will have:
-My family (me, hubby and kiddies)
-My in-laws (my husband’s family including siblings, cousins, uncles, aunts and anyone else who stops by)
-My family (my mom and dad, brother, sister, cousins, uncles, aunts and anyone else who stops by)
At either house there can be easily 15-20 people who will be at dinner. It is a day of family, fun, festivities and love! Even though splitting the holidays between families is really difficult, I wouldn’t have it any other way!!
Who will be sitting with you for Christmas Dinner? Holiday Dinner?
I would love to stay connected:
