Chirstmas really is coming!
The nice thing is we do not have high expectations to meet here, gift wise. I started a long time ago breaking up the Christmas extravaganza over 3 feast days: St. Nicholas Day, Christmas, and 3 Kings day. The kidlets get a few things each of the 3 days, and lots of group gifts, to keep the clutter down. We have good food, music, and this year, I am allowing the older kids to have their own party. I think they are more excited about that then getting gifts, to be honest.
So, today, I am off to complete a doable amount of preparation, and am determined to go with the day instead of trying to wrestle it to the ground.
May your day be blessed!
