Our holidays are different each and every year. Being married to someone who works the holidays and having other family members with work schedules that require them to work those days as well can make it difficult. This year my mom had to work Thanksgiving and Dan had to work the day after so we celebrated several different days for each holiday. On the Wednesday before Thanksgiving we celebrated with my family. We hosted at our house and got to make the dinner and spend the day with my parents, brother and his girlfriend. On Thursday we celebrated with Dans family and got to help make some of the dinner and spend some time with his Mom and Aunts. It's been a few years since we had gotten to celebrate with his extended family for Thanksgiving so it was nice to have Harper take part in some of those traditions.
On Christmas Day, we spent the morning hanging out with my parents. That afternoon we headed down to the station to have dinner with Dan since he was on shift. They did a big pot luck dinner so everyone's families could eat and enjoy time together for the holiday. It was really nice to still be able to see and spend time with him even though he was working.
