For eight years now I have lived on the west coast away from all my family on the east. It can make this time of year a little sad. I miss the family gatherings and spending time with everyone. We do enjoy our little family Christmas and every once and awhile we actually do have family in town. Which is so nice.
So, I came up with the idea of Dinner in Jammies. I bought everyone matching pajama bottoms for their Christmas presents. I called my mom and she set up a big dinner with the family in Florida and I did the same in California. When we sat down to the dinner we turned on Skype and had dinner all together. It was so nice to see everyone. We even opened gifts with each other and had a dance off. I loved watching my nephew open his new presents and my mom got to watch B open gifts.
This year I did the same. I sent a cute little invitation out to all of our special family members with a time. I hope we can spend a little time with them this year and make some memories even though we are so far away.
