We just decided that instead of staying home for a low-key Christmas we will drive 13 hours to Colorado for Christmas with both sides of the family ...
and that we will have an early Christmas here (to save hauling big presents for the kids to Colorado and back) ON THE 15TH.
So I just lost 10 days of Christmas prep time, and added all the packing & planning of a big trip.
We must be out of our minds. But Dean's brother and my sister live 10 minutes apart, and both sets of grandparents are traveling there for the holidays --- it just seems like the right choice.
Gotta run -- I've got things to do!
