"Sure, the season is hectic, but you only have a few years to put tradition in their hearts. I've just learned to stay organized so I can make things magical year after year." Jennifer Grayson, December 2010 BHG
While the rest of you were oogling (I know that's not a real word spellcheck!) photos, I ripped out this quote. I absolutely agree! Every year, I make a list of everything we want to do during the holidays (starting before Thanksgiving) and everything that might involve. Mailing Christmas cards involves writing the letter, choosing pictures, addressing the envelopes and actually mailing them. I write down every detail on a huge calendar and hang it in my laundry room.
Then, I write down a copy and place it in my Christmas Binder. I blogged about it here, years ago. I carry it with me anytime I go shopping.
This is how I can really enjoy the holidays, make sure I'm not missing anything, and try to really make it magical for our kids.
How do you stay on top for the holidays? I really am curious?
