My Xmas at home 2011

Published December 24, 2011 by Gust MEES


My spouse and myself are celebrating Xmas on December 24, 2011 alone at Home. Tomorrow (December 25. 2011) we celebrate Xmas with my spouses family where there will be 14 persons invited. Normally my mother in law, which is a very nice person actually and which I accept as my second mother; she deserves it as she is a really nice person; was every years cooking and inviting the whole family on their place…

But since she got different surgeries and the main surgery who was a triple bypass (heart surgery) I suggested to the whole family to celebrate Xmas every year on a different place and not involving anymore my mother in law for cooking. She deserve this, with 76 years old and with that heavy surgery NO WAY anymore to let her work…

This is now the third year that we (the family) are celebrating Xmas this way… On the beginning my proposition wasn’t get that well accepted, but now everybody is happy with it… Family meeting every year on somebodies (children…) home, so also everybody can contribute to a family feast and everybody from us pays its part to cover the cost. No more gifts for adult people, only to the children and the parents and parents in law… Enjoying it being together in family, the most important anyway 🙂

On December 26, 2011 my spouse and myself will celebrate Xmas on my brother’s home where I will have also big fun again with my 3 year old niece… This procedure we are keeping it alive every year to make sure family will meet…

Here below how my spouse and myself were celebrating Xmas at home…
