#GayDadWednesday: Photo Diary of Luis and D With Their Twins

D (short for Demitri) and Luis met on Date.com and have been together for 12 years. Together they’ve lived all over the States: from New Jersey and New York to California and Texas, and they now call Michigan home. They adopted their two sons in Texas in 2009. Today's #GayDadWednesday travels back a month or so, as this family prepares for the holidays: Operation Christmas Decor.


10:00 a.m.

It's a lazy start for the Santiago-Baird family. Everyone woke up late because they enjoyed a slumber party the night before.

11:00 a.m.

For breakfast, Dad D and Daddy Luis had vegetarian omelette with roasted garlic and feta, and their li’l dudes had scrambled eggs with cooked ham. Fruit smoothies for everyone because this family LOVES smoothies!

12:30 p.m.

The boys help their dads get the house ready for Christmas!  Unpacking the Santa Claus figurines is the boys favorite part, and D’s too! Then the Nutcrackers, then the musical figurines and finally the nativity scenes.

2:00 p.m.

This family is in the midst of Christmas decorating, so lunch has to be quick, easy and delicious: PIZZA!

The boys, aka Santa's Little Helpers, take a quick play break while Daddy Luis continues to decorate.

8:00 p.m.

The madness is done! Now it's time for Dad D to pose in front of the finished tree with his boys, in all its glory!

Daddy Luis poses with his two little elves.

8:30 p.m.

Snuggles and movies before bed for the little dudes. Then it’s a well-deserved rest in front of the TV and slices of pumpkin pie for D and Luis.

Goodnight from the Santiago-Baird family!
