My husband has to work Christmas Eve. so that will throw some things off but that is ok. We are staying home Smile We open gifts and I make a HUGE breakfast for everyone and we watch movies and just hang out.

My husband gets 2 weeks off from work so we will be enjoying that!

We are hosting a Christmas eve dinner for 25 people starting around 4pm, and then we are cleaning up and resetting everything because we are also hosting Christmas day Dinner for about 12 people around 1pm. It is going to be crazy! The only reason why it wont be absolutely awful, is that each couple brings a dish so that I won't have to cook everything by myself.

That stinks that he has to work, but I have to say that your Christmas sounds so wonderfully relaxing Smile

Hopefully getting discharged from the hospital Smile If not hoping the 26th.

We are planning on having turkey dinner at our place on the 26th , my aunt will be in town, so she and my mom will cook supper and we will do my side of the family christmas on that day. And a lot of relaxing!

Nothing much. We take our time opening presents in the morning and will probably have a simple dinner later in the day. I don't have the energy for anything substantial.

No family or anything this year. Just us.

It is so relaxing we enjoy it. But sometimes I think it's sad because we don't have any family and I would love for my kids to be running around with cousins and grandparents, aunts,auncles etc. But thats ok we make the best of it and my kids love every minute!

Christmas morning we will open presents here and either 1. go down to my grandparents for Christmas breakfast or 2. stay home and go to church. Either way the afternoon will be spent down at my parents house for Christmas lunch/dinner. Still trying to debate what I want to do in the morning though.

Christmas eve is always fun for us but this year will be even more fun. My parents gave us money to get a bunk bed for our boys, they sleep on mattresses on the floor of their room and DH will probably assemble that while I take the boys out for a drive to look at Christmas lights, at some point while we are gone santa clause will drop of some Pj's for the boys as well. Smile We end the night with the story of Christ's birth.

My mom, dad, and brother are coming Christmas Eve and staying with us. My mom and I planned out the menu and we are going to get the ingredients but mom is going to do all the cooking. I may or may not have a newborn at the time and if not, will be induced the next few days so Mom and Dad are just going to stay through Emily's arrival.

I'm hoping Boots will be here by then & I will already be out of the hospital. If not, I will be pretty darn freakin uncomfortable by then.

We have never had a christmas as a family & since the baby can come at anytime we really aren't planning anything. I don't even know what the schedule for the girls is b/t my ex & I.

So short answer....no idea.
