  19. We are doing a Christmas Eve eve lunch today with my Dad and step-mom. Tomorrow we do Christmas Eve breakfast with my mom, followed by Christmas morning at our house, visit to my mother in law in the nursing home, and a big family party at my aunts house with all of my cousins. It's always a fun and crazy few days. Then, I got tickets for my son to find in his stocking to go see the new Star Wars movie at 7 Christmas day. Now that he is getting older I am trying a new tradition of gifting the family movie tickets each Christmas.

  38. My hubby and I are spending it with my family. Our tradition is to eat Chinese food, then open presents. I love getting my furbabies presents. Sparky Lionel Urban, my terrier likes to wear t-shirts and sweaters so I dress him up. He also gets presents. Hubby's furbaby gets soft treats since he is our senior citizen Chihuahua. Christmas has always been one of my favorite holidays. Thank Goodness Walker's has Gluten Free shortbread now, so I can enjoy some with a cup of tea while I plan my holiday shopping, writing and art projects. Merry Christmas to all!

  60. My husband an I have sort of been adopted by two families who do not have grandparents here in Arizona. We do not have any grand kids - and so we now have 7 rent a grands. We will spend Christmas eve with one family and the other will come here for Christmas Breakfast. Lots of giggles and hugs - sitting on my lap and maybe some knitting. Until then I am still knitting slippers for all of them!

  61. We will celebrate my birthday a little on the 24th, go to the Christmas Eve service, come home and have snacks to eat, open gifts, get up the next morning and go to church and have a quiet day, enjoying our time together. Our kids are scattered all over the US and we see them in the summer when it is safer to travel. Merry Christmas!

  62. It all occurred as a real "happy"-stance. Most family lives on the other coast, except my niece. So she and I met Christmas Day at the nearby Starbuck's to exchange gifts and gossip over coffee and McTreats. We had such a wonderful time, we've made it a tradition. Now, she and her dad, my husband and I get together to have a merry morning. This year with Christmas part of the weekend were adding post-Christmas pedicures to continue enjoying the holidays. kat8762@aol.com

  67. I'm hosting on Christmas Day. I'll have a breakfast casserole in the morning with one of my children and his family. They will come back later along with my other child and my parents. I will be having prime rib and a tradition that we celebrate every year is pulling Christmas crackers and having plum pudding. If permitted, we'll have the fire in our fireplace and open gifts.

  74. Since my husband had cataract surgery yesterday, Christmas this year will be spent quietly at home with our little Corgi mix, Bella. Our youngest son will be over to eat and the oldest daughter will probably stop for a bit with her family. Our other son and his family have invited us for supper on Sunday and we celebrated Christmas with our younger daughter and her family at Thanksgiving since they live several hundred miles away. Kind of miss having everyone together, but then again, it's nice to spend time with each quietly and enjoy the moment.
