A New Way To Do Christmas!

I don't want to get ahead of myself, but before I know it, Christmas will be here. Don't get me wrong, I want to enjoy every minute of Thanksgiving, and make sure I don't rush through it, but I would be lying if I said I wasn't keeping an eye out for Christmas gifts.

A few years ago, I read about a new way of doing Christmas. I honestly don't remember where I saw this idea, but I loved it! Each family member would get four items: something they want, something they need, something to wear, and something to read. I think this is a fabulous idea. Let's be honest, now-a-days, people get so carried away with buying too many gifts and lose site of the true meaning of Christmas. I mean, I love giving gifts, but if that is the biggest thing for you at Christmas, then maybe you should re-think some things, and I mean that in the most loving way!

I thought that this would be the perfect year to cut back a little. We just bought a house and furnished the whole thing. I even thought about not buying anything this Christmas and wanted to just focus on Jesus and spending time with family and friends, but I thought since this is our first year in our new home, we should do something.

This is a fun way to buy gifts without going crazy. It allows you to give to others and celebrate the season without losing focus of what Christmas is really all about!!

I created these gift tags to put on the presents and I am offering them to you to download as well.

Check back on Monday for photos and stories from my son's 2nd birthday and our 1st annual Friendsgiving Dinner!!

Many Blessings,
