This year Craig and I agreed on new traditions because in years past the Christmas holiday has been an overwhelming day. Last year ended with Gillian and I both crying. So this year rather than doing 3 Christmases in one day we are doing 3 Christmases in 3 days.
Today we went to Craig's parents for Christmas Eve with his family. We had a ham lunch followed by gift opening. It was relaxed and we were able to spend 7 hours there (normally it would be 2-3 hours tops). We were able to put toys together and play with new toys and were able to visit with everyone. The evening ended with a game of Chutes and Ladders that got pretty competitive and everyone there was either playing or watching the game because it was that intense (we aren't competitive people or anything...lol).
