We’re everywhere!  Tomorrow (23), we’re celebrating with my family (parents and 7 siblings) at their house about 45 minutes from here.  Christmas eve morning/afternoon is just the two of us (yes!!!) and then that night is with DH’s family about an hour and twenty minutes away.  Christmas Day is with DH;s extended family about 2 hours away and then the 26th is my dad’s side of the family on the other side of the state!  I’m really looking forward to seeing everyone since I was sick Thanksgiving and missed most of the gatherings.  I hate that we’re missing my mom’s side (definitely closer to them) but going to 5 out of the 6 planned in 4 days is pretty good…

we used to have very busy christmases (i have a huge family) but this year will be a quiet one.  we will be at our home in mexico for a guaranteed green christmas.  we will have our turkey dinner and watch christmas movies and maybe go for a walk on the beach.

we celebrated christmas with our families last month when we were in canada.

Today (23rd) we are spending the day with our bosses and their children (we work/live on a Cattle Station; FI-to-be works on the property and I teach the eldest) so we are having a Station Christmas. Tomorrow we drive to the city and fly to Sydney for two weeks, so we will be in Sydney for Christmas day.

We are planning on going to one of the many Christmas events around the city, enjoying our time alone and exploring the city.

Christmas Eve is spent with my extended family and Christmas is always only us and our girls.  Christmas Day at home as a family is a tradition for us.

Spending Christmas with my family (without FI, since he has to work, but I’ll be back in time for New Year’s with him).

We’re spending Christmas Eve and Christmas morning with my family, about 4 hours away in Maryland, then driving back here to Virginia to spend Christmas dinner with my SO’s family, who live about an hour away from us.  It’s going to be busy, and we just finished wrapping gifts tonight, but I think it’ll be fun.  We’ll do Chinese take-away with my mom on Christmas Eve (since my dad works evenings), then have a big Christmas breakfast with them, something we used to do with her side of the family when I was little and they were still alive.  My dad, being Jewish, is less invested in the Christmas stuff, but has prefences about how breakfast is cooked.  My SO’s family is doing a big spread for dinner and has some treats for me (lox and gluten-free bagels, score!), which is really sweet.  I’m looking forward to it.
