Since Becky and I are going to be visiting my family in Pennsylvania for Christmas, we did Christmas with Becky’s family this weekend.
Saturday morning we exchanged gifts with Ken, Dianne, and Corey. We got some nice stuff, including Marriott gift cards so that we can have a weekend getaway before the baby arrives. We gave some nice stuff too, including a pair of magnetic mechanic’s gloves to Ken, some knitted wrist warmers for Dianne, and a book safe for Corey.
Saturday afternoon we had Christmas lunch with the Lowe family (pictures available with family login). It was good to see everybody, and to have a chance to play with the twins. They’re getting quite talkative and inquisitive… it makes me look forward even more to having kids of our own. 🙂
On Sunday, we saw some of the Quitadamo family at Kevin and Susie’s Narnia Brunch (pictures available with family login). It was quite a busy party, with lots of kids, ice skating, hockey, and sledding outside, Turkish Delight and Narnia memorabilia inside, and even an appearance by Santa!
Christmas Part 2 will be this weekend, when we will be driving down to Schuylkill Haven, PA to spend time with my mom’s side of the family. Alas, it is only for a few days, but that’s all part of the changing traditions of a 20something Christmas.
