So, the cat is now out of the proverbial bag...this weekend we told both sets of parents that we would be spending the Christmas holidays in Disney World. My parents seemed genuinely excited (huge surprise, actually) but Jon's mother accused us of being selfish. This comment centered specifically around the request that we have asked to not be included in the exchange of gifts this year (with the exception of us buying something for Jon's niece, Lilly, and soon to arrive nephew). Basically it boils down to, please don't buy us anything and please don't expect to receive a gift from us (much more politely said of course!).
Now, we ALL know there is no love lost between Jon's mother and I, so I will be the first to admit that I am in no way subjective enough to know if what she says has merit...so, I am asking for opinions from those I trust. Seriously asking. Don't just tell me what I want to hear because it will help me sleep at night. I don't sleep anyway ;)
Let me have it.
