A little bit Awkward, a little bit awesome.

Awkward:

Standing in line at the Pharmacy and having your kid shout "Hey Mama, look!  Santa"  referring to the Pharmacist.  (I mean, medication can sometimes be a gift, but....he's not quite Santa)

Getting asked by two different people at the in-law's Christmas gathering if I was pregnant.  WHEN I'M NOT!

Changing one kid with bad diaper rash, then having the other one who does not have diaper rash repeatedly ask if he can have some "butt cweam" too.

Having to photoshop your son's face on the Christmas card so at least one of your kids has a damn smile. 

Awesome:

Playing out in the snow with the kids when the sun is shining

Christmas food (i.e. cheesy potatoes, cookies, more cookies, candy, pie, etc...)

Enjoying that Bryce understands Christmas a little better this year and watching movies with him like The Polar Express

Ugly Christmas Sweater parties.

The glow of the Christmas lights and fire place in the evenings when the kids have gone to bed and the house is quiet.
