Everyone can agree that we work all year long to take care of our families. A lot of times this leaves us very little time to actually spend quality time with our loved ones. After a full day of work, shopping, tending to your animals and the kids, cooking, cleaning, sports, helping with school work and projects, and carpools we don't have enough time in a day. What better time to spend quality time with the family than Christmas! I know you must be thinking how can I even think about Christmas right now. FYI, it is just around the corner and it's time to sacrifice some things so you and the family can have a wonderful holiday. Forget about the cleaning one day, or two or three days. It is ok it will be there when you get back!

Christmas is my favorite holiday of the year. I get so excited every year the closer it gets! Yes, I am one of those people that would love to decorate November 1, but avoiding that Holiday stigma of skipping Thanksgiving, I give it just a little longer. Not to mention my daughters birthday is the 22nd, and old enough to join in on the conversations on how Halloween passes then Thanksgiving is forgotten and her birthday. LOL, I promise you we do not forget about her birthday!

Who says you can't start now though preparing your fun Christmas activity list? No judging here, this is why I am going to give you some quick and easy ideas. Who knows this may bring out your inner crafty side to make your own personal activities list! So let me just give you a little boost getting on the ball.
