PostSubject: Holiday plans?   Thu 19 Nov 2009, 10:03 am

What is everyone up to for the holidays? I am thinking of spending it with a friend that lives in another province. Neither of us have family close by so we figured it would be nice to combine two families (her three kids and my two) and have one of those "big" Christmas' we seem to always hear about but miss out on.

If I don't go there it will be just sit at home dying to rip down the tree once the gifts are opened and put away.

I one of those ones that hates to see the decorations come down. Even with the tree down (as long as I can stretch it) I have to wean myself off the decorations. I find the house so 'cold' looking once they are all gone, so doing it all at once would put me into shock. :lol:

Only one of our three out West are getting home this year, so will just have the two girls with us. And baking......they love to get at the Christmas baking. They're not big sweet eaters, but just love the fun and warmth of all of us in the kitchen. Of course Christmas Eve HAS to be lasagna and we still do stockings, which they sneak up stairs for still .....though not as early as they used to. In some ways it is so different from when they were kids, but all in good ways...except missing the ones not with us.

I'll likely be working Christmas Eve day and Boxing Day so we'll just laze around, cook dinner when we feel like it and probably all have a good nap. ;)

I collect antique Santas. They go up December 1 along with the tree. The tree is on a table that I use...so it usually just gets annoying. I want it down so I can have a "living" room back. My santas and other decorations stay out till the end of January.

I love baking for the holidays. mmmmmmm

Haha, I spent years picking up Santa's....the 'old word' kind. Have had to stop putting most of them out as the 'kids' were always complaining they creeped them out !!

I have a two ft. high one in blue velvet pants with silver brocade jacket who always stood on the carpet by my kitchen door. Every time my younger son (and largest) would walk into the kitchen, his weight shifted the carpet enough that Santa would fall over and 'follow' him through the door........he soooo hated that Santa. So being the rotten mother that I am, his last Christmas home I had Santa parked at the top of our stairs to greet him........with a sign in his outstretched hand..........I'm Baa-aack!!! :lol:

yep THOSE ones.

I have two that move (not antique). Mr. And Mrs Claus. I couldn't put them out for a while when my son was young. He cried.

I have so many I don't have room for them anymore. I should just leave them out all years so I don't have to go through the hassle of unpacking them. HA HA HA

When your son is over 6 ft tall and doesn't live home anymore and they STILL bother him, we can send him to live with mine!! :lol:

When Drew & I first got engaged neither of us wanted to give up the tradition of our family day dinners... so we alternate... One year its lunch with my family, dinner with his family, and the next year we switch. This year I get to have dinner with my family, and I'm excited, its been a few years.... and my mom rocks at turkey. I can't wait for the years that the mornings are spent at home with your own family, then travels in your new clothes to their grandparents.

All my life my family would do early morning in Windsor, get in our new dress clothes and pile in the car to be in London for dinner... and I loved it. I'm hoping this year I can make it up to London to visit my nana & papa... I miss them when I don't get to see them.

Does your mom remember that she gave it to you for Christmas? Maybe now she just does it so she gets one she likes for her birthday. LOL

I would guess she remembers seeing she gets it in the same gift bag with the gift tag still on 8)

HA HA HA What I wouldn't do to rewrap some of my gifts from my mom. :lol:
