Well- it will soon be that time of year again…as our family grows and members go out into the world, Christmas gets more complicated, stressful and expensive. To relieve the stress & expense (gift and shipping) of Christmas- we would like to simplify the process.
- 1 small gift- photograph of the family (my favorite- we all have frames of family- let’s keep them updated), one food item (ex. Kelly’s caramel corn- just the caramel corn with a bow- nothing else), one jar of jelly with a bow…keep it simple, just a small way to say- hey, thinking of you.
- Still buy for kids in college and below (starting with Kameron, Delaney, Kels, Silvie,Harley & Nina)- again simple.
- Still buy for our parents- they give to us- we give to them!!! (NO mom- I won’t argue this point- we will just do it).
We all have our families that we celebrate Christmas with- we want to remember others but it should not come at the cost of craziness, debt or stress. Let’s give the best gift- time, freedom from stress and money…we all know we love one another- next time we see each other, give a hug, share a glass of wine, laugh together- ENJOY EACH OTHER!
