With the family now more spread out than ever, organizing Christmas was a little tough this year. We had lots of family plans to consider! We managed to accommodate everyone if we did have to break traditions a smidgen!
We celebrated with mom and dad and my brothers and their children. In lieu of our traditional Italian dinner we opted for appetizers. It was very tasty and easy!!! The kids enjoyed spending the day together playing and opening presents.
