Christmas in July 2010

Christmas is Coming!

In fact, it starts tomorrow. Well, sorta.

This is the third annual Christmas in July at LifeasMOM where we talk about all things Christmasy and how we can be better prepared as moms, homemakers, and family managers once December 1st rolls around.

Good Ideas

There is so much we could talk about as regards Christmas, that it could easily become overwhelming. Good thing we don’t have to do everything all at once. Instead, we can build on ideas and improve our celebrations from year to year.

This year we’ll be talking about:

If you missed resources from Christmases Past, you can catch up. We’ve discussed so many things over the last two years:

Giveaways Galore

I’m so excited about the great DAILY giveaways we’ll have featured this week! Should I tell you or should I keep it a secret? Hmmm….

These giveaways have ended. But, boy! What great stuff!

While I’m thinking about that one, bookmark this post because I’ll be linking back to it throughout the week. This will be the one-stop planning shop for your “Life as MOM” at Christmas time.

Grab the button, spread the word, and come back tomorrow for all sorts of holiday inspiration.

  1. I’m new to your blog and can’t wait for this series, I’ll have to check out the other two years too. I started planning for Christmas last July too but still found I had a lot to do come December! Hopefully I’ll get better at planning this year.

  2. I am excited to see all the great ideas!! Especially about preparing for a holiday baby. We are expecting our 3rd child, first little girl right before the holidays hit and I am already starting to organize so that I can actually celebrate and enjoy the holidays instead of running around all crazed and stressed out!

    Hmm… Is there something I missed? Or perhaps, something you want to share? Is there a “Holiday Baby” in your midst this year? I’ve been picking up a lot of cues the past few months…Spill it!
    Bwaaahaahaahaa!

      @Sarah G, very funny. No, I just realized that many of my readers could benefit from baby posts. And my baby is getting so old I can’t remember. ;)

  4. I am excitedly preparing for our own Christmas in July. I’ll be sharing more on Monday at my place… Can’t wait to see what you’ve got!

  5. Dave Ramsey is one of your sponsors? Major cool points!

  6. I just found your blog and I will definitely be bookmarking your site and reading your posts on a regular basis. I am a planner by nature and somehow every year about this time (end of July) I start realizing that school is only a few weeks away and that always seems to start the Holiday rush for us. September 1st to January 1st is a blur!! I have really tried the last couple of years to plan ahead sooner and sooner so I, as a mom, can actually take time to enjoy the special time instead of trying so hard to make things great for everybody else that I somehow miss it all.

    Thanks!!

    Jane

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
