I have a few gifts left to buy, but DD has been sick all weekend so I haven't had the chance to get out. We go around town to relatives but the furthest away is about a hour from our house (we will go to 3 houses), I don't do any cooking/baking because we travel all day so it should be a pretty easy going day for us!

Hope DD is feeling better and you can get out to finish up.

It sounds nice not to do any cooking and baking, but does sound exhausting to go from house to house!

Wishing you a Merry Christmas!

I still have to work this week although they'll probably send us home early Friday. I have one more gift to get and that's just going to be a gift card. I'm done with the shopping for everyone else and just need to wrap the gifts. We don't have a tree so we'll probably just put them in the corner after the kids go to bed Christmas Eve.

We don't usually travel for Christmas. I'm not much of a cook and our house really isn't set up for guests so no, we aren't hosting any holiday dinners or parties. DH baked chocolate chip cookies Monday just because.

We're going to my parents' house for dinner Christmas Eve and to open gifts from my brother and SIL. We'll go back Christmas morning and open the gifts from grandma and grandpa.
