Santa Claus is Coming to Town just about 5 days.  Can you believe it?  I am personally facing the weekend with much excitement and sadness as I know at this time next week, Christmas 2011 will officially be a thing of the past.  But enough about that! 

There is much to be done over the next few days but as I watch the frazzled, harried faces of those around me, I am again reminded of why I start planning for Christmas in August.  I have a couple last minute presents to wrap, which I'll finish up today.  Dinners  for the week are all made and just need to be popped in the oven.  With that being said, my plans for the week are as follows:
Take the kids to see Christmas lights
Watch A Christmas Carol and The Nativity Story (my two favorites!)
Breakfast with my BFF
A visit with a friend from out of town
Lunch with my mom for her birthday

It really is the most WONDERFUL time of the year!

Take Action- Finish Up!

It's the first full week of December and we are about to finish our Christmas preparations.  Yes, I said, "Finish!"

Granted, I'm sure there are some last minute details you will still need to finish up.  I've never had a year go by when there wasn't a gift or two I needed in a pinch or wasn't wrapping at least a couple presents up to the last minute.

Here are your goals for this week:

Week of December 4th - December 10th

*Mail your packages and cards

*Finish purchasing your gifts

*Wrap and label any remaining gifts

*Pepare teacher/school and work gifts

As your calendar fills with parties, events, and family functions, you can be proud of all you accomplished over the last several weeks.  You've worked hard ( and probably dealt with your fair share of ridicule) and now it all pays off.  Enjoy the season!
