Only 51 Days Until Christmas!

Are you ready? And, it's only 22 days until Thanksgiving! In case anyone was wondering, yes, I do make lists, and yes, I have already started. This year, I'll be making regular posts to help you all plan ahead to have a less hectic holiday season so that you can focus on the important things: the real reason for the season: Jesus, and your families and friends. So, be sure to check back with your to-do list in hand to make sure you stay on track this year.


TOS (The Old Schoolhouse) has put together a totally FREE e-book filled with tons of fabulous ideas, activities, crafts, and recipes for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Click here to get your digital holiday supplement and get started with great ideas for the upcoming season.


Our friends at Living on a Dime have posted directions for making an adorable, easy Christmas candy wreath. Now is the time to buy candy on sale; cute and fun does not have to equal pricey! As you can see from the picture, the candy does not have to be all red and green. Check out the FREE directions here. They even have video directions for the non-crafty people among us. You'll want to make one to keep and a bunch to give away!

I hope you enjoy these 2 fabulous and generous gifts to jump start your holiday season! Leave me a note to let me know how you're doing planning ahead this year.
