  • When our children were born, christmas day is at our house. We wanted our sons to wake up in their own beds on christmas morning where they were comfortable. I would take the kids to my mom's house early afternoon on christmas eve and then have christmas eve dinner at my dad's where gifts are opened on christmas eve. It made our lives much more simple and not so much stress on the kids.

  • On Christmas Eve we put the presents in the stockings and under the tree. Every year we buy a new ornament for the tree. I make home made egg nog. On Christmas morning, we eat salmon on bagels with cream cheese, tomatoes, onions. Then usually we go to his and my families houses. We open presents all day long lol!
