I'm joining in with my Friend Sandra from the blog Diary of a Stay at Home Mom for the Blogmas of Christmas this season. You can check her out here and come play along! Here's day 12:

Day 12- Quiet or loud family filled Christmas?

I would say that I like some of both at Christmas. We always have a quieter Christmas Eve and will spend some time with my Mom and go to mass with her, but then we come home and it's just about the 4 of us as a family. But Christmas Day is with my Hubby's family. So there will be a big group at our house and after dinner we play our loud and rowdy fun "door prize" game.  So I love the mix for the whole holiday and having quiet and loud fun moments. ;) 


  1. That sounds really nice Carrie. Not too much excessive partying, and we always go to Mass Christmas Eve too. Most years I sing with the choir, but am taking a break this time. Christmas Day we do the extended family, and it is lots of fun - but also tiring :)

  2. Love it, sounds like so much fun. :)

  3. It sounds like a nice balance Carrie, and that's just about perfect!
