I mean it.....Look UP!
Do you see that it is exactly 125 days until Christmas?
Christmas is coming and it will be here before you know it!
Every year just before Christmas I promise myself that
NEXT year I will be more organized! and I vow to start in January
and do a little bit each month. Ha!
I love Christmas but it's always so hectic and as the mom I always have tons to do to facilitate all the family traditions that we have started over the years.
And now we have sweet Mia............this year should be a barrel of fun with her. Here she is last year:
She was just a wee babe!
Isn't she cute in her Elf shirt and hat?
So I thought that this year I would share my journey with you all on this here blog by sharing some of the tips and tricks of managing the season
that I'll be trying. We can all support each other!
I will also share some of my favorite patterns for the season,
but first I want to share with you a great organizing site.
This link is to Flylady's Holiday Control Journal.
Have a look at these pages.
"Flylady" talks about alot of her other helpful routines
in the first couple of pages of this link,
but continue to read thru it, because at
the end there are some really great forms for getting organized.
One of the pages that I plan on using is the one to
organize all your holiday recipes all in one place!
I have several recipes that I use EVERY Christmas.
If you want you can even join the flyladies regular site, both
online and on facebook of course.
She'll send regular messages to help you get organized, both
in getting your house ready, menu planning and grocery shopping.
Here is the link for her regular site:
Actually I have already started making some of my holiday crafts.
Okay, truth be told......these projects were started
but they are done now!
See.....it pays to start thinking about Christmas now!
Merry Christmas from our family!
