That's what I love to hear. You guys are working together to make a better life for both of you and your family. That's the way it's supposed to be. (I may still be a little drunk....)

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.

I can honestly say we do pretty well about communicating, and not trying to show each other up. We've had some struggles, but we've made it work with no fussing or arguing, and minimal hurt feelings.

Now I feel a little bad about the Santa stuff though It caught me off guard and I didn't have time to prepare myself lol
I wouldn't lose sleep over it....

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.

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.
