Have you missed any of our wonderful bloggers and their 
blog share Christmas Treats?
If you have, it's not to late!!

Here is what Karen from Tots and Me had to say about what she is sharing:

As we get ready for Christmas we, as a family, try very hard to emphasize the importance of the celebration of the birth of Jesus, our Lord and Savior. This starts at the beginning of the month with an observance of Advent, focusing on the joyful anticipation of his coming. Quite a few years ago I decided to create a countdown chart that would ultimately focus on this true meaning of Christmas. I originally saw this idea on a Christmas card and decided to incorporate it into our celebration. 
I started by painting a Christmas tree onto poster board:

Okay, so everyone knows that Christmas is wonderful. I love it. It's my favorite holiday. I love the music, the snow, the lights, the traditions, the food, the presents, the love, the family, but especially....THE EGGNOG!!! I am very picky about my eggnog. Seriously. It has to be just so, or I refuse to drink it. I can't have the stuff that they sell in the stores, because it is so thick that it could stop a bathtub drain in it's tracks. I know that there are others out there who feel the same way, and simply refuse to drink it. I actually won't drink it alone, unless I seriously thin it down. But, I am also a bartender and because of this, I present to you, A Southern Christmas. Don't be scared...we're gonna talk about how to make the perfect Christmas Eggnog, but with a vodkaandmotherhood twist.

Doesn't that sound fabulous?? I love Egg Nog. We are very close!!
Run, don't walk to vodka and motherhood to see what it takes to make this serious Holiday Treat!

Are you looking for ways to simply your holidays?
Look no further!

The Christmas season is thought of as "The most wonderful time of the year". But often times, once that time has arrived, we feel unprepared, stressed out and over burdened! We pack our schedules with parties, shopping and baking. 
We feel pressure to out do everyone around us with creating the best ever moments, traditions and memories.
This can all be incredibly overwhelming!
And the next thing you know Christmas is a few days away and you haven't done all the things you were hoping to fit in, much less enjoy the activities did accomplish. 
I know for myself, especially with young children I want to provide my children with all the magic that this time of year brings, but in the past I have watched the holiday come and go with nothing crossed off my to-do list and feeling disappointed in myself for falling short.
So how can we fix this??? How can we ensure we enjoy the holidays and accomplish the things that really matter to us?
