Christmas Tree I'm even more excited this year

Hiya

We have been blessed with 4 beautiful girls our youngest was born in May, this will be the first Christmas we will be a complete family I just wish the livingroom was bigger lol, we are going to be doing Christmas dinner here also, so it will be the 6 of us, my parents, and my grandparents to soooo excited!!

Does anyone else do the Christmas dinner? I am a little nervous, but I am used to cooking for a bigger family, but I just wish I had a bigger oven lol.

What an awesome post!!! You sound so happy and excited like you stated!!! I cook Christmas dinner and I too wish my oven was bigger, but I have a feeling no matter how big it is I will always wish it was bigger HA, HA, HA!!!

Do you know what you are planning to make? Are you doing desert too?

Six in your family, plus relatives, plus Christmas dinner? Wow. You're Super.

I would be the same way though.

I'm managing Thanksgiving for my family and helping my mom with Christmas.

I am browsing online for ideas for puddings my gran always makes a trifle and her puff mince pies which nobody can usually eat till boxing day haha but they are just scrummy.
She usually does christmas dinner, but she has had a hard year, with being unwell.
I don't think ovens can ever be big enough can they hehe

Your Christmas sounds so much fun this year. I'm sure you'll get lots of help from your Mom, and your husband. I know what you mean though, no matter how many times I've made a holiday dinner, I'm always afraid I'm going to mess something up. My husband is a big help though. You'll have to tell us what your menu will be

We usually end up with about 20 members of our families here on Christmas. It used to be real hard on us with the cooking and cleaning up after everyone left, but we now have everyone bring a dish, drinks, etc... and that helps a out a bunch.

I am not having Christmas, but I'm having Thanksgiving for 41! I really don't have to cook much though as everyone brings too much food & it's all so yummy! I am SO EXCITED to be hosting again this year. It has been 3 years since I had it last.

Lovely post! I, too, am more excited than ever before this year, it's my first as a married man! It's going to be such a beautiful Christmas season this year, and (I hope!) my last Christmas without being a father!

Stay Christmassy everyone!
