I'm a little sad to see that Christmas is over but we had a very succesful Christmas season in our home. I shortened my to-do list and accomplished the list of things I couldn't ignore. We didn't go gangbusters with the homemade gifts this year, and I thought I would feel disappointed--but I don't! We still chose gifts that we felt were fitting for each family member and from their reactions, I think we chose right. Several gifts came from Etsy too, so technically there were some handmade elements involved, just not by our hands.
Make Peppermint Bark
Jar Gifts (post coming soon!)
Spend time with family
Celebrate my brother Joey's birthday (without Christmas distractions!!)
Send out Christmas cards
Go to a Christmas program (either visit our old church or a new local one, both?) and remember the reason for this season
And now we're just a few days away from 2013! With all that has happened this year, I am equally excited & anxious for what 2013 has in store!
