Our second Christmas celebration took place Christmas Eve, with my family. We arrived back from Christmas #1 and had just enough time to clean the house (in a throw-things-in-closets-to-be-dealt-with-later kind of way) and get presents together before leaving. On a very spur-of-the-moment idea, I grabbed two santa hat and told my husband we were going to wear them to my parents' house. He protested at first, but then went along with it--to the point that he wore it inside Walgreens when we had to make a stop! My wonderful, good-humored man.
I enjoyed being with my family. Since the two weddings it's been more and more difficult to get the entire family together at once. Mom had to get a picture of the two new couples together on the couch. She took a picture first, and we all shouted "No! Wait!" And dove for our Christmas hats. Properly attired in seasonally festive attire, she was allowed to snap the picture.
