Eleven Days before Christmas

Santa is marked off of the list.

We are lucky enough to have a local Santa to visit where the lines are short, the wait time is non-existent and Santa looks pretty real.  Your community might have a similar place check your local newspaper and

I’m also wrapping up the presents as they come into the house.  My list of gifts left to buy is printed out and filed into my planner so I can take advantage of any spare, free moment AND so I can cross things off as I make them happen.

Looking for a quick and easy craft to make with the kiddos?  Consider paper chains.  Littlebit and the Princess are both over the moon about this super easy craft.  They’re inexpensive and even young children can participate.  At three, Littlebit was able to make her own chain with a little help.  And the Princess took off with supplies to make her own as well.

If you want to step up your game, check out Folding Tree’s holiday entries for some cool paper crafting ideas for big and bigger kids.  I made a few tear drop ornaments to hang over the dining room table….for some reason I can only find a few of my normal snowflakes this year.
