Christmas is Coming: Preparing to Enjoy!

Christmas is just around the corner! That might be hard to believe while we are enjoying these warm sunny days of summer, but it’s just a little over four months away.

Our family loves the Christmas season. After Thanksgiving we put up the Christmas tree and decorations around the house, turn up the Christmas music and make sugar cookies with the boys(and try not to put on five pounds!). The one thing we do not want to do is stress out and  rush around buying christmas gifts at the last minute. So around here we try to have our Christmas shopping done before Thanksgiving. This allows us to really relax and enjoy the holidays. No stressing out here!

With that in mind I am going to do a series of posts on being prepared, gift ideas, and enjoying the Christmas season!  Let’s remember that Christmas is not about the hustle and bustle, but about the Baby who came to die. Christmas should be a time of celebration and memory making for your family. So let’s prepare to enjoy!
