I told him to bring everything and let them open it separately, so they would know that was their gifts from his house.

Idk, it's very confusing to figure out what's going to be best for everybody. And I truly don't want to hurt his feelings or offend him.
First year we were apart she invited me to stay the night (couch) and be there in the morning to watch daughter open gifts and I took my gifts to her house to have everything together under the tree. It didn't seem awkward that year, but we weren't officially divorced yet. It gets easier with time. Next year you'll do your thing and he'll do his and you won't even think of getting together and doing Christmas together.

The X and I decided to combine our gifts to take away any perception that one parent bought cooler stuff than the other one. We didn't want it to be a competition, or make our daughter feel weird about liking one parent's gifts over the other. She won't know who got what for her. What works for us may not work for everyone, but this seemed like the best way for us this year. Next year may be a totally different ball game...

I gotta give her credit, for as much as there is between us we've been able to put aside all of it when it comes to what's best for our daughter. As a nurse, missing holidays is nothing new to her and we've always worked around that, so in that regard this is nothing new...

That is definitely a big part of the fun. Even with Wifey, I always keep one or two things out of her sight to surprise her with in the morning.

Good call. Doesn't matter how old they are or if they believe or not, it makes it fun to keep up the charade.

I try. Sometimes I get there, sometimes I don't. I want her to have the best Christmas she can and I know her mom goes all out. For all my ex's faults she's a pretty good mom.

black ops 2 Twas the night before Christmas, he lived all alone,
In a one bedroom house made of plaster & stone.

I had come down the chimney, with presents to give
and to see just who in this home did live

As I looked all about, a strange sight I did see,
no tinsel, no presents, not even a tree.
No stocking by the fire, just boots filled with sand.
On the wall hung pictures of a far distant land.

With medals and badges, awards of all kind,
a sobering thought soon came to my mind.
For this house was different, unlike any I'd seen.
This was the home of a U.S. Marine.

I'd heard stories about them, I had to see more,
so I walked down the hall and pushed open the door.
And there he lay sleeping, silent, alone,
Curled up on the floor in his one-bedroom home.

He seemed so gentle, his face so serene,
Not how I pictured a U.S. Marine.
Was this the hero, of whom I’d just read?
Curled up in his poncho, a floor for his bed?

His head was clean-shaven, his weathered face tan.
I soon understood, this was more than a man.
For I realized the families that I saw that night,
owed their lives to these men, who were willing to fight.

Soon around the Nation, the children would play,
And grown-ups would celebrate on a bright Christmas day.
They all enjoyed freedom, each month and all year,
because of Marines like this one lying here.

I couldn’t help wonder how many lay alone,
on a cold Christmas Eve, in a land far from home.
Just the very thought brought a tear to my eye.
I dropped to my knees and I started to cry.

He must have awoken, for I heard a rough voice,
"Santa, don't cry, this life is my choice
I fight for freedom, I don't ask for more.
My life is my God, my country, my Corps."

With that he rolled over, drifted off into sleep,
I couldn't control it, I continued to weep.

I watched him for hours, so silent and still.
I noticed he shivered from the cold night's chill.
So I took off my jacket, the one made of red,
and covered this Marine from his toes to his head.

Then I put on his T-shirt of scarlet and gold,
with an eagle, globe and anchor emblazoned so bold.
And although it barely fit me, I began to swell with pride,
and for one shining moment, I was Marine Corps deep inside.

I didn't want to leave him so quiet in the night,
this guardian of honor so willing to fight.
But half asleep he rolled over, and in a voice clean and pure,
said "Carry on, Santa, it's Christmas Day, all secure."

One look at my watch and I knew he was right,
Merry Christmas my friend, Semper Fi and goodnight.

Anyone else planning to be up late wrapping presents..... Or baking cookies ..... Or decorating the damn tree. What a crazy week it has been, here. The kids couldn't be happier, though, and that's all that counts.
Wait a minute.... decorating the tree? I thought I was late putting mine up last night. That's funny!

Glad the kids are happy. You're right, that's all that matters.
