I spent a few hours today working on a Christmas-planning post for Power of Moms, and I must say that I'm very excited about Christmas this year.
Here's the link, if you'd like to read more: "Planning What Matters Most at Christmas."
My children and I were laughing about our gingerbread house from last year (I included this photo in the post):
The first caption I wrote for it said, "Can you tell I let my children do 100% of the decorating?"
But that hurt their feelings, so I changed it to, "Didn't I do a good job?"
And then Alia changed it to this: "We made a kid-friendly gingerbread house. No rules or regulations . . . just pure fun."
I said, "That's great, Alia!"
And she replied, "Yeah, I have a way with words."
Hope your Christmas planning is going well. It doesn't have to be expensive or complicated. It's about the feeling, right?
