Plans for Christmas Eve/Christmas day?

What are you all doing?

Tonight my family is going to a Christmas eve performance at the Broadmoor, Colorado Springs only internationally ranked hotel in the nation. We're going to a dessert reception, and going to see different performances, as well as watch my brother sing in his citywide choir. =) And then tomorrow, spending the morning at home and afternoon driving an hour north to eat Christmas dinner with some family friends. =)

Today-
We are watching Christmas specials all day with my brothers. We are watching Dexter's Christmas right now, it's so fun! Then we always have gumbo and read the Cajun's night before Christmas then watch Santa on Santa Tracker.

Christmas day-
We are waking up around 8, seeing what Santa brought us, then I have to go out and take care of the horses. Then when I get back we'll all open the rest of our presents and just hang out all day, watching specials, I'm probably going to watch the Superpipe Snowboarding Championships

At the moment we are in the middle of a blizzard. We had no plans for tonight, just snuggle in watch Christmas movies. Tony went to visit his dad (terminally ill) yesterday and had a nice visit with him and his family. I stayed home with my flu symptoms, not wanting to pass it around.
Tomorrow we have dinner with my mom and family.
We want to go for a drive to look at Christmas lights but the blizzard conditions my spoil that
Happy Christmas everyone!

Here's a photo I just took looking out the window. See all that white? Nasty blizzard!

Tonight:
Going to my aunts house for casual dinner with a few aunts and cousins, watching it's a wonderful life with my family when we get home :)

Tomorrow:
25 family members are going to attempt to squeeze into our tiny bungalo for dinner. In the morning we'll open all our presents and then we'll clean for the rest of the day.

When I was a kid I loved going to Holiday dinners like that at Grandmas. Big piece of plywood on saw horses coverd with a cloth for a table... It was great!
We just don't have enough family still local to do it. Plus now I'd have to clean up after

Well, yesterday (Eve) I stayed at home, watched tv and surffed the web. Then in the evening we had our family Christmas dinner before we opened our gifts (in Finland, we tend to have our gifts on Eve).

Today I just chill at home, continue watching tv and surffing the web.
