  • everyone heads to my parents house in the afternoon, we drink wine and talk..(moms busy makin the big ham dinner) we eat dinner..clean up, and open all of our presents.

    we started doing that maaaaaany years ago, because on christmas day..we used to drive 2hrs to go to my grandma and grandpas house for the day...they died about 8yrs and 12 yrs ago.. but now that WE are all grown up, and married with kids..we still do it because on christmas day, the kids go to their inlaws house..but we still all meet back at mom and dads for a big turkey dinner..

  • From my first Christmas on, we always go to my grandparents house. My dad, mom and 2 brothers... Even though my parents are no longer married, my dad still comes too (my mom's parents house). We cook dinner and eat with my aunt, uncle and cousin, open 2 gifts.. and usually go home.. But this year I think we may have to go to my inlaws afterwards, since they are working in the morning. I love my inlaws to death, but I dont want to drag my 19mo old baby around 8pm Christmas eve... Especially since she is on a great schedule and sleeps well through the night... ugh. Sorry.. vent..
    But we will probably end up going there too, since we wont be seeing them Christmas morning.
