I do not think we did a weekend plans post, if so, I am sorry I missed it!
With all of the holiday festivities starting to ensue share your plans!
Today we have Church ( depending on Bo), the Broncos game, and turkey dinner with my H's family! We made a spicy cranberry cream cheese dip and are bringing the turkey to fry! It should be a long day! But I am looking forward to playing cards, eating, and probably drinking some of Nana's eggnog
Christmas Eve: I am getting a massage in the morning, then finishing up some grocery shopping, and making my famous mexican feast! Green Chile, Chile meat (pork in a spicy red sauce), spanish rice, beans, and tamales! We have a ton of christmas cookies to lay out for dessert, but I am picking up a mini dessert tray from the bakery that did Bo's birthday cake!
ILs said they might stop by sooo I am excited to eat, wrap gifts, and take lots of video of Bo the night before Santa comes!
Christmas: Opening gifts! I have been doing the happy dance for a month now hiding the mini cooper from Bo! he is going to LOVE it!
After gifts we will shower get ready give Bo a little something to eat and then head to the ILs' for lunch! This should be very interesting as my BIL's baby mama is back in the picture and BIL#2's princess will be in town! I predict after the 3rd day with H's family we will be getting home quick! We decided to make a Pot roast for dinner...and keep things simple for Christmas night. Something about that seems so right, yet so wrong!
HAPPY HOLIDAYS!! Looks like mine are full of eating and yep, eating!! I hear a cleanse calling my name!
Today, my Bff is coming over to watch the Steelers game with us. We haven't seen him in forever, so it should be a nice visit. After A goes to bed, I am going to make my grandmother's raisin cookie recipe for my dad and uncle and some brownies. I usually make 12 different kinds of cookies, but I just don't have it in me this year.
Tomorrow, we are going to my sister's at 2 to open gifts with just my immediate family. The rest of the insane relatives come at 4. Dinner at 5:30, gifts with extended family after. Hoping to get out of there at 7:30, which is already an hour after A's bed time, and we have an hour drive home.
Tuesday, we are going to have to do a speed Christmas morning so DH can go to church, then his parents are coming up at noon. He's making a turkey dinner (actually lunch) for them (same as Thanksgiving). Hoping they'll be gone by 4.
Christmas Day = home!!!! We are headed to KS the day after for a few days.
This made me so excited for you! "There's no place like home"! Have a safe trip!
Tomorrow we will go to church with MIL/FIL and one set of BIL/SIL. Then the other BIL/SIL will join us witht heir kids to exchange gifts at the ILs house.
Christmas day we get to enjoy the morning to ourselves. Then we have H's huge family party at ILs house in the afternoon/evening.
My immediate family Christmas isn't until Friday. We always have it later so my sister can drive down from RI.

Today is my oldest's birthday, so the marathon begins now!
He's opening presents soon and then I guess going to an arcade? And a movie (one parent will stay home with LO) and out to dinner. And there will also be cake!
Tomorrow I'll be finishing up gifts, starting to cook for Christmas dinner. We go to church at 4 and my mom's after that for a fun dinner and gifts.
Christmas morning at my house is probably my fave event of the year! A mountain of gifts under the tree, stuffed stockings, and clementines EVERYWHERE. Santa brings us dozens and they make a trail from the top of the steps down to the presents and all among them and in the stockings We eat sausage casserole, cinn rolls, coffee, juice, fruit salad and....clementines.
Christmas afternoon, my SIL and her family will come over for gifts and lunch/snacks, chili cheese dip, veggies, chips/salsa, cheese platter and meatballs. Also my MIL and DH's grandparents will come for dinner. I'm making a FEAST. Ham (from Honeybaked), potatoes, broc/cheese/rice, green bean casserole, cranberries, salad, 2 pies, cookies. Yeah for being pregnant at Christmas! It all tastes better when I'm pregnant!
Christmas Eve: my grandmas for a light dinner and time with my uncle and his family. We will leave early to go to MIL's for her Christmas Eve (just her kids.) we will open the gifts that we have for each other.
Christmas day: brunch at my grandma's, open gifts. Then home& , nap for the baby. Dinner at 6 at GMIL's with the whole IL family. We sponsored a family instead of gifts, but the LOs will still have stuff to open that night.
Eta: Opening gifts with G, Christmas morning before heading to my grandma's
