Well... It has begun! The annual quest for the perfect Christmas!
Yikes! I don't love the countdown, the stress, the chaos of Christmas.
I am starting to decorate my house this week so it will be done when we return from Thanksgiving... I love to do it and how it turns out. My tree really brings me holiday joy.
I want this season to be about JOY!
Saturday Caylor and I went to the mall to do a few returns and pick up a few things...
We had the greatest lunch in a darling little ski restaurant and just sat there
watching it snow...
We talked about what we wanted for this holiday season-
I said that I wanted it to me more about the Christmas season instead
I don't want to be a recession scrooge... but it won't be the elaborate Christmases of the past.
I am doing a free online class with Jessica Sprague... Holidays in Hand and
she linked her site to this wonderful little chunk of Christmas Wisdom.
So... to all my 5 friends in the blogosphere...
What do you do to make the Christmas season more memorable for your family?
I want my kids to remember events and feelings rather than presents and junk.
Help me... I have got a few ideas, but need your help.
