This will be Brandon's fourth Christmas. We're always super busy around the holidays since we have so many families to see. My kids have four sets of grandparents so we have several houses to go to during the week of Christmas. >.<

This will technically be Jerrys 3rd christmas (he is two) and nathaniels first! We have our annual christmas eve party that my husband family puts together and its always huge. We have a santa, huge christmas tree full of gifts for all the kids contributed by all the adults. The older kids always go down to the basement and converse etc, kids run around, adults stay upstairs, catch up pass around babies etc.

This will be my baby's first Christmas. We are planning to travel several states and hours away to be with in laws for the holiday. My mom will have her turn at Thanksgiving and my father lives close (about 2 hrs away) so he generally visits every other weekend. My father in law - not sure when he'll meet the baby. Unfortunately both of our parents are divorced so sometimes it's difficult getting everyone in because we're all spread out.

I know the feeling. Both of our parents are divorced and remarried as well so we have a lot of houses to hit. We're doing the same thing this year and visiting one during thanksgiving, and 2 others during Christmas. Where are you traveling to?

We attend a get together like that with my MIL's family. She has 8 siblings, they all have about 4-5 kids and all of those kids now have kids lol so they rent out a church and there is always a TON of people. It's fun but it can be weird at the same time since everyone know's each other and we don't.

We live in Kansas. For Thanksgiving we are traveling to Mississippi and Alabama for Christmas. Hubby's dad lives in Virginia but he hasn't met baby yet.

Are you nervous about traveling with your baby? How old will they be?
