Today is September 25th. That means that Christmas is exactly three months away. It’s gonna fly by. Fly by.

I’m so busy juggling today that I could blink and miss the whole thing. I don’t want to get sideswiped by the holidays. I want to enjoy them.

I’m not knitting up a storm or anything. But, I am brewing some ideas for making this Christmas season a simpler one. For many Christmases past, I’ve been eager to go “whole hog” at the holidays. This is not one of them.

I want to rest and rejoice. I want that for you, too. So, I’ve got some “holiday helps” in the works to make this year’s a simpler season — for both of us.

Are ya with me?

Be sure to download this FREE Christmas planning ebook. It’s full of my favorite Christmas links, a fun (and easy) recipe to make with the kiddos, as well as a little bundle of planning pages and fillable gift tags.

May the next three months and the days afterward be as simple as can be!

  1. This doesn’t seem to want to load for me properly. Wondering if anyone else is having any issues. I definitely am tired of being overwhelmed by Christmas – want it to be fun and peaceful, beautiful and simple.

  2. I am with you! I walked into our local Rite Aid yesterday and (gasp!) there were Christmas decorations in the aisle.

    Simple – I want simple. I want Jesus, more of him and less of the stuff.

      I’m already talking to the kids about completely edible stocking stuffers. I’m tired of cleaning the little junky things up the rest of the year. 😉

  3. I’m also with you. Christmas gets so overwhelming and exhausting. This year I’ve vowed to be better prepared and not go crazy with my time or my money!

  4. Thanks for the reminder that Christmas is near and preparatioins need to be made. My children must be on the same page because last week they found and played all of our Christmas music CDs. 🙂 Thank you for the free Ebook Christmas planner it will help me get my act together.

  5. I’m with you! I’ve been doing simple Christmas for years now and I’m going back…

  6. Wow! What a great resource! Thank you. This is far superior to my folded up pieces of paper w/names, items, $ amounts and scribbles I have strewn throughout my handbag and diaper bag.

  7. Ok, now that I’ve looked at it I just want to add… I like your planner. Simple and not overwhelming. Will recommend.

  8. Thank you! Christmas is always crazy. This year, my Grandma was just diagnosed with terminal cancer (a week ago), so I hope this helps us all focus on the important things and maybe do away with gift for the VERY LARGE extended family once and for all.

  9. Thanks for the freebie! We’ve been un-commercializing Christmas for a few years now-and the world didn’t come to an end, so it’s got to be OK!

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."
