How sweet, Gloss!  Mr. Y and I are hosting Christmas dinner for my family this year… I’m so excited!  We were just trying to figure out what our tradition for that morning should be.  Pancakes, perhaps?  :o)

Thats exciting!  We still havent used our china!  We are going to church with his parents on Christmas eve and then spending the night at their house to open gifts with everyone the next morning.  BIL/SIL 1 and BIL/SIL 2 are going home to have Christmas morning at their house because they have kids and BIL/SIL 3 are going home to have it at their house first also but they dont have kids.  We couldve stayed home and had our first Christmas Day at home as a married couple but I figure until we have kids we will continue to spend the night at his parents house.

We don’t have many plans.  Just hanging out and sleeping.

This is our first married Christmas.  We’re splitting our time with our families–spending a few days with the ILs now.  We’ll be here until Christmas morning, when we drive (4.5 hours) to my family party.

One of the things I was kind of disappointed about was that we don’t have any real couple time together.  We decided that we’re going to open our presents from each other together at our apartment on Christmas night.

@Gloss – aww.  That IS sweet.  🙂

We’ll spend Christmas day with my family.

We put up our first tree together this year.  We’ve been together for four years and lived together for three, but never had a tree before because we were always traveling during the holidays.  It was such a bonding experience!  Maybe for the first time ever, I felt like he and I are becoming our own little family unit.  I could picture putting up the tree with our future kids.

Merry Christmas, all!

Christmas Eve and Christmas: Food and hanging out with the families in approximately 5-hour stints. Then, home. We’re going to clean, unpack all of his stuff, go through our closets and drawers in the extra rooms of the house. Some major winter cleaning, if you will. We’re having some filet mignon tonight (my parents gave us a loaf this weekend!) with korean bbq sauce (mmm bulgolgi) and probably just relaxing and having some wine tonight.

Christmas Eve Fiance and I will go to church then over to his parent’s house for food and merriment.  We will then leave there, go pick up our dogs and drive 45 minutes to my parent’s house because I refuse to NOT wake up there on Christmas morning.  I know, I’m spoiled but I can’t help it.

Then we’ll spend all day eating, drinking and watching movies.
