After 8 years and 3 kids I have figured out what stresses me out during the holidays...I can't relax until my house is decorated and the Santa picture is taken. Years past both of these things have lingered on my list and it would drive me crazy. Now, I get both of these things done the weekend after Thanksgiving....Tree up- done, Santa picture taken - done.
I have 3 girls- sweetie pies. They love to do crafts...but again that can stress me out because I am not crafty. I participate in a craft exchange. Each mom takes a different craft and prepares 24 ziplock bags of the SAME craft- all the supplies/directions. We then have a craft exchange and you get 23 different crafts. You start Dec. 1 and there is a new Christmas craft, bible story each day for your kids to enjoy.
