So this holiday season has me very excited! I am so looking forward to a much needed and much deserved break from work!!

So.. today I am off to work for about a half day of training at the hospital.. Things are going great! I had a much better day yesterday. I got to interact with the kids and really started to settle in(a lil).

After work I have to go home and pack up the presents ansome clothes and then run just a few errands before I head to my mom's house for dinner. My brother Chris and his wife Heather are in Jersey from Baltimore for the holidays!! I am looking forward to spending time with them and my Mommy!! we will have dinner at my mom's house and then all spend the night and wake up together Christmas morning....

Usually Christmas Day we all (my mom, brother, Heather, my grandparents and I go to my aunt's house and have dinner with my cousins). But since my cousin Andrea just had a baby and isn't scheduled to come home from the hospital until today we have decided to stay home this year and have a quiet dinner... I am looking forward to this.. It's going to be nice to not have to rush around and get ready to leave.. I'll be able to hang around in my PJ's and chill on the couch for a good part of the morning!!

After my house I go to Brian's parents house for a 2nd dinner/dessert and celebration with his family..

And then comes my favorite part....... Brian and I go back to our place and exchange presents late night, sit by the tree, and watch movies and just enjoy being together.. It's almost like our own personal Christmas Celebration!!! It's kinda of a tradition... and I love traditions...

Merry Christmas Eve to all!!!!
What do you have planned this holiday season?

Your holiday traditions sound like so much fun! For my family, my mother always hosts a Christmas Eve dinner at her home for friends and family after we attend church. Christmas day is spent with us going around to different places.

I hope you've had a wonderful, relaxing Christmas!
