I’m excited but i’m also sad that I won’t be waking up with my sisters to a wonderful Christmas morning with my family. It will be fun, but I feel like this is a huge change.. (we are going to my mom’s for brunch, can’t change everything)

I’m not married yet, but it’s my first “engaged” christmas, and there is definitely something great about just being able to enjoy the holiday season without wondering if I’ll finally be getting a ring!

This is one thing that won’t be too different for us.  We’ve gotten pretty good at splitting up the holidays.  And since we live several hours from our families we go and spend the night there for several nights.  So we’re still very much cemented in our families traditions.

It actually doesn’t feel different at all. We’ve been living together four years anyway, so everything is pretty much the same. It felt a little different when we actually got married, but Christmas, not so much.

I am super excited for this Christmas!  Next year we’ll have a baby, so it just feels really special this year to have one last Christmas to “just us.”  🙂  Plus, my husband loves the holidays and is an awesome cook.  He woke me up this morning with banana foster’s french toast…  I can’t wait until tomorrow morning!

It kinda feels the same so far! We’re looking forward to relaxing. Last year, Christmas Eve, he got home from Iraq so it was really hectic with everyone wanting to see him. This year it’s just like “ah……sleep in….relax….” etc.

I’m been thinking about what breakfast to make on Christmas and EAQ’s mom’s french toast recipe is going to be it! So i’ll put that together tomorrow and tease him with it =]

It’s not different for us.  My parents split up just after I met my (now) husband so we created new traditions immediately.  If my family was all getting together in my hometown that would be a lot harder but as is, can see everyone.  It’s not ideal but not having to compromise with which family we see for the holidays is priceless.

This Christmas actually isn’t as good for us because we can’t go anywhere and can’t afford presents.

I remember our 1st married Christmas being more exciting because we could send out greeting cards with 1 last name on the return address labels. Laughing

A little! I feel a little more pressure to “fit in” to his family christmas traditions.

We got married last year (Nov. 08).  We honeymooned Dec. 5-17th 2008.  So technically our first married Christmas was a hectic blur. 

This year, after having celebrated our 1 year anniversary, we REALLY enjoyed our first married Christmas together.  Although we lived together for many years, I always spent my Christmas mornings at my parents’ house. This was the first time in my entire life that I woke up in my own home, with my husband(!) on Christmas morning.

It is so peaceful and romantic.  I loved it.  Admittedly, I did miss my family Christmas Eve and early morning traditions….but I love the new traditions we’re starting too 🙂
