Christmas is now just 9 days away!
I returned home from vacation last week to realize I was very far behind in my plans, but we finally finished up our homemade gifts and the last of our purchases, and I feel much better now. If we ever plan another December vacation, I’ll know to make sure I have more done before we leave!
This week, my girls and I are counting down the 12 days of Christmas. We’ve had a baking/craft project each day this week, and while I don’t think I’m going to end up with much time for serious baking, it’s been a good routine for making sure we just have fun together rather than getting sucked into the stress of the season.
My cards have been sent and all my online shopping is done. This weekend, I’ll be wrapping presents and shopping for the Christmas dinner-in-a-bag drive at church. My grandmother is coming and will be here through Christmas, so I’m looking forward to that. Maybe we’ll get some baking done after all while she’s here!
How about you? Are you ready? Are you feeling the stress or enjoying the season?
What’s left on your to-do list?
What things did you decide to scrap for this year rather than stress about them?

Looking forward to reading your answers as always!
