Make A Christmas Planner~

*I am getting a jump start here~please remember I am not skipping over Thanksgiving! I think Thanksgiving is one of the most spiritual holidays that we celebrate. My sister is taking care of Thanksgiving for our family because I will be flying out Thanksgiving weekend to be with my daughter are she delivers her first child~our little Boston.* Please pray for the safe arrival for both Ashley and Boston. What a wonderful gift my sister has given me~ I can concentrate on Christmas!

Christmas Planning~
I prefer to have about 12 weeks to plan but this year it has been so busy I am just now getting into the swing of things. I have 4 weeks to get it all done. I am beginning on November 1st!

First Things First~

Make a planner. Here is a fantastic site to print a planner without spending money.  Click here!

Plan the work and work the plan!

Stay tuned for Week #1 !

Great holiday reminder post!

I used to do a Christmas notebook every year to help me stay on track now it's a bit easier since we don't go all out and buy/give to everyone. We keep it to about a handful and that includes our immediate household and a few of our closest family (parents, grandmother, aunt, etc.) Other than that it's pretty low budget and low key with lots of decorations and yummy food.

Christmas is going to be hard this year, but I'm determined to make it a great one for the kids!! Going to look at the planner now. Thanks!

What a beautiful picture Carrie. It looks so peaceful there.
Thank you for the planner link. I'm usually started with my planning by now but this fall we decided to update our dinning room and family room. I feel so unorganized. Everything is packed in boxes and it is driving me crazy. I'm a planner through and through. I can't even get to my hutch right now and that is where I keep my card list etc. Oh but it gets better...we are hosting Thanksgiving dinner at our home as well as Christmas due to other family members not being able to do so this year. I hope we're ready!
I'm keeping both Ashley and little Boston in my prayers. What an exciting time for you and your family.
