Kennedy is the only grandchild on Dustin's side (for a few more months) so, there, things are a tad calmer....

Confession Number 69: The Tale of Two Christmases
Christmas, for us, is a whirlwind time with family that we don't get to see often enough. Some years we have spent more time on the road than we do actually relaxing around the Christmas tree, but we love every minute of it. The last few years we have settled into a Christmas routine that, for right now, is working for everyone involved. We leave on the 23rd to travel to see my sisters in Enid. My mom comes up on the 24th. After opening presents on Christmas morning we drive to Texas to see Dustin's folks and spend Christmas evening, again, opening presents. The drive is a bit long, but as long as there isn't a snow and ice storm that gets in our way, it is a welcome break between the sessions of tearing open gifts and allows KJ (and whoever is the privileged passenger) to take a much needed nap.
