Yeah I had a reality moment hit me in the face. Christmas is 11 short weeks away! 78 days to be exact (from the time of posting this)… eekk…

I came to this realization when I was talking to a family member about where Christmas will be this year. See, in my mind I think it’s important to have it here at my house this year – with my children being that magical age of 4 years old they are beginning to understand both the true meaning of Christmas and the excitement of Santa Claus. So that memory – for me anyway – would be best made in the home they are growing up in, the home that they will live when they are in high school, the very house they will come back to every summer (and hopefully weekends) while they are in college. I want this home to be filled with happy memories as they grow up, and Christmas is one of those times.

In the coming weeks I will be sharing with you my usual tips and tricks for the holidays along with great ways to find the perfect gift, one of them being Holiday Toyland – a fun interactive shopping experience from Walmart!
