are ya ready for Christmas?
it's only 85 days until Christmas!!
(I've already started shopping...)
For many reasons, it's a THRIFTY Christmas for us.
We're not dirt poor, but we're not rollin' in it either, you know?
More than the money, I don't want more junk and clutter in my house!
So we're keeping it REALLY simple this year.
One of the books that I always reach for is this:
(don't you love how I put THREE obnoxious frames around it??)
Book Title: 365 Ways to Prepare for Christmas
Author: David E. Monn
It's an older book, first put out in the 90's but it is FULL of timeless traditions and RECIPES like you wouldn't believe!! (The one for overnight French Toast is knock-down fabulous...You'll have to start wearing elastic pants!!)
I've asked my husband to make something for me for Christmas, a project that he and Adam can make in secret in the garage from stuff we already own. It'll be a good bonding experience plus it'll last forever!
Are you guys already prepping for the Holidays?
