I'll try to make this short. DH has an INCREDIBLE love of Christmas, and after having much trouble conceiving, we never thought the Christmas would come where we can share it with our daughter. She is 2 1/2 now and this is her first year where she "really" knows what's going on. We are SO excited. However, we moved into a fairly large home and we are having Christmas Eve for his family this year. We also have moved about an hour or more away from most of them. His cousin & her boyfriend (rip-roaring party biker types) have invited themselves to stay the night, which is OK the other 364 days out of the year, says DH, but he just wants to wake up Christmas morning and not have hungover people scratching their butts walking past us going "Man I really tied one on last night... Where's the coffee?" when we're trying to share in the wonderment of Santa with our daughter for the first time, the moment we've been waiting for, as long as 14 years.
DH told his family poliltely that we don't expect any overnighters, but now his cousins said they're not coming to Christmas at ALL, and he's kind of in the doghouse with the rest of his family. I'm not sure which way to lean... I see both sides. I felt it was rude for DH to tell anyone they can't stay, but at the same time, we want to be ALONE Christmas morning. :(
