We'll go to my brothers for presents before going to see Les Mis.

This year, I'm switching things up a bit. I used to always stay at my dads house Christmas Eve night and wake up Christmas morning with my dad, little brother, step-mom, step-sister and all the dogs. My step-mothers family used to come over on Christmas Eve too and her parents would stay over until Christmas morning. Then I'd drive over to my moms for Christmas Day festivities with her side of the family (my uncle, aunt, her husband, her kid, my grandma, her husband).

This year is going to be a lot more quiet. I'm staying with my MOM and little sister this year Christmas Eve night. She will be 5 soon and is VERY excited this year and I just want to spend it with her and see her excited face. So I'm currently at my dads house now, for his birthday (today), and will leave tomorrow before dark to get to my mothers. And my uncle is going away this year, and my grandpa is as well. So it will be much smaller this year.

Well my mom and step dad are staying with us over Christmas which is super exciting. Christmas Eve we have our church service (I'm singing) and then we'll come home and let Hannah open a present or two, maybe drive around on the way home from church and check out some lights.

Christmas day we will get up in the morning and watch Hannah open all her presents, watch Mickeys Very Merry Christmas Parade on TV, have a nice breakfast with all the fixins and veg out until the afternoon and then we head over to brians cousins place for the family dinner and more presents lol

We are on vacation in South Carolina and will be getting up early to watch the sun rise on the beach, go on a long early walk, then back to the little beach house we're renting. Probably getting ready and showered, then for an early lunch at the local fresh seafood place. Christmas movies in front of the fireplace for the afternoon. Maybe another beach walk. Christmas cookies and hot chocolate at night with board games

Well my brother is here and it's just my parents, me and him. Tomorrow night we will probably just watch movies. And Christmas Day we usually open presents around 8 or 9 am. And then probably take a nap after.

Then we will have dinner early in the afternoon since my brother has to leave with his friend he came here with to go back to his town. We're having prime rib and some other stuff. So glad my family is all together because that is more important to us (and me) than any present.

Christmas eve we go to my mum's cousin's house for a huge family dinner/gathering. We do it every year and it's always a lot of fun; lots of singing and laughing and good food. It's pretty much the only time of year I see some of my second cousins because as we've all grown up we've grown apart. So it's good to see the extended family.

Christmas day we wake up (my mother, brother and me) and open presents. Then we pick up my nana and bring her to our house for a HUGE Christmas breakfast. Only this year her new live-in caregiver will be joining us, as will my big (sorority sister). She's from across the country and unfortunately couldn't make it home for Christmas. And then in the evening we go to my mum's boyfriend's house to open up more presents and for a huge Christmas dinner.

And then boxing day is another massive family celebration at my nana's house (with my mum's two brothers and their families). As you can tell, we love to eat.

Oh, Fran . . . ((((((((BIGHUGS)))))))) I know that's not what you had in mind.

Wish you could come spend the afternoon at Dina's with me. I know she and her family would welcome you -- and so would all the creatures.

Tomorrow is my nephew's birthday, so we always go to the Mall of America early in the morning to do some last minute shopping, and then spend the day going on rides at Nickelodeon Universe (aka, Camp Snoopy, forever in my mind).

After we get home from that, we'll have to get ready to go to my aunt's house - we go there every year for dinner, games, and to play a gift swap game.

Then, time to come home and do last minute present wrapping, gorge on some frozen pizzas, and start watching 24 hours of A Christmas Story.

Christmas Day I am not 100% sure what is happening lol. I know it is being held at my house. We're having prime rib, turkey, shrimp scampi, and crab legs. We'll have a billion presents to open because, well, there's a billion people in my family lol. We basically just hang out and eat and have an awesome time!
