We celebrated Christmas with my side of the family on Christmas Eve (straight from the airport!) and then again on Boxing Day. I love spending time with my mom and brother during the holidays and continuing our Polish traditions. If you missed it, I summed up our Polish traditions in this post.
On Christmas Day, we had dinner with Mike's family. Seeing the joy in my 3 year old niece's eyes makes Christmas so special. It's true when they say the holidays are so much more exciting with kids around. On the 27th we went out to a nice brunch with Mike's extended family and there were 7 kids under 5! It was madness but oh so fun!
At the end of it all we were exhausted but very grateful for being able to spend time with our loved ones. That's what really counts.
I hope you had a wonderful holiday as well!!
