I’m having a baby!  πŸ™‚  I am due on December 22nd but I have a feeling it will be closer to Christmas.  My husband has joked that we don’t need to plan Christmas dinner because we will be having hospital food that day!

It’ll just be me and my SO this year.  We usually try to fly home to visit my family (his family is Jewish), but I flew up for 3 weddings this fall, so we’re skipping that this year.  We’re going to Miami the week before Christmas for vacation, then get back to my house on Christmas Eve.  I’m thinking about starting some tradition for the two of us, but I’m not sure where to start.

@Lolasmomma: so exciting! congrats!

i’ll be stressing out about a new job. i start training about 2 weeks before x-mas, and knowing me, my anxiety level will be through the roof.  good thing my Fiance knows that’s the “holiday spirit” i’ll be having this year! πŸ˜›

I LOVE CHRISTMAS – so here’s my Holiday season!

  1. Mini-Christmas:
    This is a tradition my boyfriend and I have:
    every year, we pick one day (Dec. 18 this year) and we get up really early, open our stockings πŸ™‚ then we have a brunch all ready to go (we prep it the night before) -> (all we have to do is heat) and have mimosas. followed by the GIFT OPENING, and the rest of the day has been in the past dedicated to a full movie serie with awesome food and drinks all day (day of decadence!). This year will be slightly different, we’ll probably go outside, play in the snow (Ha -i’m an eternal kid!) and build a gingerbread house instead of movies all dau long.
  2. Christmas with his parents:
    I’m having them over (with a brnuch and all) and we are all exchanging gifts.
    They are such great people, I’m so excited! (Dec. 22)
  3. Christmas at my parent’s home 
    Since we get to see them only twice a year, we are going to spend a few days (he’s going to have to practoce his french!) and the whole family (40+ people) is there, etc.
  4. Christmas #2 with his parents:
    They are taking us to Chicago for an amazing trip!
    I cannot wait!

Ah good thing i LOVE christmas! Laughing

Apparently (just talked last night), my SO and I are going to spend Christmas Eve and Christmas Morning at our apt. He’s INSISTENT we open presents ‘in private’ at the apt and asked for suggestions of ‘smaller, less expensive’ items he could buy me because I won’t have much to offer. My coworkers believe there may be a proposal in the works!! We shall see….

Then to my parents’ house and his parents’ house. Then time to rest up for day after shopping! Best deals of the year and I’m getting a down comforter =D

@kmsw:  I like the mini-Christmas thing! Might have to do something like that with my boyfriend since he’s going out of town with his family for Christmas.

Unfortunately this year is a little harder than previous ones for us.  GMIL is now in a retirement home and in a wheelchair.  Last year she was in her own home, walking, driving, totally independant.  Anyway, none of our families houses are wheelchair accessible, so she can’t spend Christmas with us.  The way we’ve tried to accomodate is to have the big family dinner (usually with my mom and sister, his mom, brother and sister and grandmother) at our house on Christmas Eve (which is also DH’s birthday) and then spend Christmas morning with my mom and sister at their house, go visit GMIL in the home, have brunch with her, and then go back to my mom’s house to eat a small dinner with them.  We always go to the States for New Years, this year we’re going to San Fran/Monteray on the 27th to 3rd πŸ™‚
