Christmastime!

I'm really not trying to scare anyone... but do you realize that Christmas is just 10 weeks away?! Earlier this year, I'd promised myself that I was going to be better organized so that we could have a more enjoyable holiday season. I know that it's going to be busy regardless of how prepared we are, but I don't want to be so rushed. The kids are old enough that they can help make simple gifts if I take the time to pull it together now. I want more time to reflect on the real gift of Christmas, rather than fighting through crowded stores to find the perfect gift or starting a batch of cookies at 11 PM...

Great post here about planning ahead, and there's even a six week plan here (kicking off Oct 26).
