100 Days to Christmas.... YIKES!

Can you believe it? Today is 100 days to Christmas! That could freak you out, but DON'T let it. Seriously.

I LOVE Christmas. However, I don't love it when things get all hectic and crazy. Generally I try to get all of my Christmas shopping and Christmas cards done before Thanksgiving arrives. That helps, but it doesn't take away all the stress.

I stumbled across a wonderful website last year that I fell in love it and this year I wanted to share it with you!

It is appropriately named after today - "100 Days To Christmas"

Every day the website gives you all types of ways to plan and prepare for Christmas: party planning, meal planning, gift giving ideas, and even little words of inspiration and encouragement!

It may be a little too early for you to think about planning for Christmas, but whenever you decide to start I pray that you will always keep Christ the center of your celebration.

"Remember, if Christmas isn't found in your heart,
you won't find it under a tree."

It is hard to imagine that it is 100 days now! But in choir we are already listening to Christmas music...hard when it is 90 degrees outside!

Dr Wifey, you crack me up!

Deanna, thanks for the reminder! I already know what I plan to get my kids and, as with last year, I am trimming things down in order to get more into the real meaning of Christmas. If I keep doing this every year, Christmas is gonna get really easy! :-) And I gotta go check out that site, thanks!
