With everyone being due in December it's possible that some of us will give birth close to Thanksgiving, Christmas, Winter Solstice, etc.... Have you guys thought about your plans on how you will celebrate and whether you will travel or have company stay for several days?
My family, along with DH's, have already asked about Thanksgiving. We turned them down. We both know that in those last weeks I tend to hibernate and go into seclusion. I just want to spend time with my DH and kids and enjoy those little moments we have together before we get busy with a new little one and REST while I can. We are undecided about Christmas. It's possible I could give birth a week beforehand. I am sure we will stay home - traveling with a brand new baby, no thanks - which means parents will want to visit... not sure about that one. They are baby holders and tend to play tourist (also means they want everyone to go with them) when they visit, not helpers. And I've made it clear to my DH that if anyone shows up they are not here for vacation and there will be a list of chores that will need to be done. Does that make me a jerk?
Anyway, aside from staying home and trying to decide on visitors for Christmas we will likely keep everything the same. My DH taught me to cook and knows his way around the kitchen. And we can continue with our traditions (DH taking the girls to the Nutcracker, hot cocoa and Christmas lights, etc.) and hopefully make some new ones and creating sweet memories for our children.
