  1. I'm the meal planner/prepper/executor. Doesn't matter where we are…if its at my house…its me, if its at my in-laws its me. Plus my daughter was born on December 29 which is an added stresser – so I have to plan a birthday party when everyone is holiday hung-over. 🙂 I tell myself that one day I'll look back and be happy about it all…but in the thick of it…I just want to throw my hands up and head to somewhere warm!

  2. THANK YOU WHITNEY! The holidays for MOMMA is so exhausting! And sickness too. Everyone has a great time but setting up and the take down sucks! I host most of the time and my husband is literally MIA. After the whole fam left on Christmas Eve, he went straight to bed. So, Santa was solo, and everyone came back for Christmas Day. I used to love Christmas but now I’m just a Grinch.

  3. I'm glad you got some great family time in over the holidays!! So nice that you're so close 🙂 None of my business but I remember you both mentioning that you're Jewish? I was just wondering if you celebrate both holidays or you have a preference for Christmas? Just curious

  4. Definitely prefer hosting. Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. I want all the smells and warmth and leftovers around for the weekend. And Christmas is more practical to keep little kids near their tree and gifts than dragging them off for visits. Easter, Independence Day I will relinquish the food and beverage part of the get-together. Don't need to be home for church or fireworks.

  5. I just want to say yes I'm a prep person I host Thanksgiving and Christmas every year so I send out emails, text to make sure everyone that's cooking or coming in is all on the same page because I love organization. Let's just say my family always thanks me later lol . I love family reunions and holidays just the noise and laughter, fellowship catching up and having fun I just so look forward to it every year.

  6. Thanks for always being real Whitney. You took on A LOT of work and it’s only human to feel overwhelmed and triggered by all the personalities. You have such a beautiful family. Blessings in the new Year.💕🥳

  7. thank u for being so honest! i can totally relate to this not just about holidays but life in general…sometimes u just get so stressed out and overwhelmed trying to 'balance' everything it feels impossible

  8. I appreciate your honesty. Not just that you were snippy but letting it show and seeing that..girl I hear ya. Holidays are hard but it appears you did well and made memories. Happy new year!

  9. I really enjoyed this episode! I love the holidays and I bet it was so beautiful at your house!! I just wish you wouldn’t be too hard on yourself. You’re a beautiful soul! You’re human and you’re allowed to have a moment. Keep up the good work

  10. you looked like you had a lovely time but yes it is exhausting. We scaled back at Xmas and it was just my partner and I which was lovely and so needed after a hetic few months. wishing you a fantastic 2020 from Scotland xx

  11. Gracious we did the exact same thing! The week before our family showed up from out of town which was the Sunday before as well my son who is the same age as sonny, got croupe, then immediately got the stomach flu which went around. Thanksgiving came and went. Xmas came…. family came, we to took a 2 day trip to Seattle on New Years and came back with a case of scabies…. it was eventful, overwhelming and exhausting. I’m still tired.

  12. Holidays are so exhausting! In my house, we have started to really taper it down. Cook the traditional family foods, serve on paper plates. Who cares about table decor? Presents aren’t a big deal…adults already buy what they need, and kids stop paying attention after the third or fourth gift anyway. Keep it simple. No one remembers tablescapes or the perfect gift wrap…they remember the laughter, the excitement, and all of the silliness that happens when family gets together.

  13. Omg I can't believe how much I don't like holidays as an adult now, it's just pure stress.
    Just want to make happy memories and traditions for MY family, my hubby and son.
    Trying to please others is too tiring, and we just can't anymore.
    Mental health over everything. Our boy Niko had a great time, with minimal extended family time, just calm peaceful happy time in our house❤️💚

  14. Whitney and Timothy, thank you for sharing this special moment with us. I too felt the exact way, overwhelmed, wanted to check off to do list.. holidays are stressful but they shouldn’t be. Thanks for relating to me and everyone’s else. Looks like everyone had a wonderful time despite Sunny getting sick.. but he looked like he was having so much fun when the moments were good. I too got a little too tipsy at Xmas eve.. but it was all in good fun.. we get stressed at the moment but we have to learn to enjoy being in the moment.. life is too short and precious to not enjoy time with family.. we might be dysfunctional, not get along but when we all come together it’s the best bond ever. Family always comes first. Thanks for the reminder.. love these vlogs and all guys so so so much!♥️

  15. This is the reality of the holidays. Yes I love to watch the curated YouTube videos but thank you for being so authentic and transparent with what you choose to show us. It's not about complaining it's about speaking your truth and a lot of us have holidays like that and appreciate your perspective.

  16. Whitney, it is unbelievable how someone can have no makeup on and be so beautiful. It truly comes from within. You exude peace. You honestly look exactly like your mother. Wishing your family a Happy New year!❤

  17. Christmas did sound way too much! We only do my little family: husband and kids on Christmas day. It is so good that way. Other celebrations are on different days with extended family. We hosted Christmas dinner for my side of the family but it was held prior to actual Christmas.
