So DH and I got married in March. He deployed shortly thereafter but made it home in time for the holidays (yay!!). His parents were invited to the homecoming ceremony, we went to dinner afterwards for an hour and a half, they got a hotel (they have a tendency to do this without informing us ahead of time), and then guilt tripped us into waking up early and going to breakfast with them for 3 hours the next morning. Later that week we went to their house for the day for Thanksgiving.
Ok so Christmas Eve/Christmas was at my parents' house. He called his family on Christmas and I heard his mom whining about him not being there for Christmas and he had to keep reassuring her that we were switching off every year and we'd be there next year. Keep in mind we also went to Easter at their house so this was the first holiday with my parents. Now they want us to come visit to exchange Christmas gifts but we're going to his brother's house for New Years and I start my last semester of nursing school later in January.
My question: When do y'all usually see the "other" family to exchange Christmas gifts? I'm feeling pretty miffed and a little smothered.
