We’re going to be doing things a little differently this year than in previous years. Rather than stay at home for most of the holiday, and try to keep things as calm as possible, we’re going to be spending more time with family.
The past few years, we’ve been really trying to limit the excitement, in order to help ensure we physically and emotionally survived the holiday. lol
This year we will be going to a larger Christmas party on Lizze’s side of the family on the 23rd. Christmas Eve will be spent with Lizze’s parents and Christmas Day will be spent with my family. The kids will have a blast with their cousins but like I’ve said before, it will come at a price.
At the very least, the boys will be extremely difficult to manage. Worst case scenario, we will be dealing with a shitload of meltdowns for the days following the holiday.
One of the reasons we’re making this decision is because we want to try and find a way to spend more time with family during the holidays, while still maintaining a balance. Whether it will work out of not remains to be seen, but we’re going to give it a good faith effort.
