'Tis that time of year again. November is here and it will be gone before you know it. So have you started your Christmas shopping yet? Are you done (like I am) or are you dreading the thought of even getting started??
My hubby and I started a tradition with our family a few years ago and it's one of our most favorite. We call it the 3 Gifts at Christmas. You can go Here and Here and Here and HERE and HERE to see my previous posts about this tradition but in short, we give three gifts to each child at Christmas (not including the stocking). We have special tags that I made when we first started this tradition and we use them every year.
The 3 gifts are:
The gift of Wonder
The gift of Usefulness
The gift of Meaning
It's a more meaningful way for us to remember the true meaning of Christmas. Not only is it fun for the kids but my husband and I love it too. There is something about a much simpler Christmas that truly redirects your thoughts to the Savior. It helps us teach our children about the 3 gifts the Christ Child was given.
I am excited about this years gifts for my family. And because a baby is due to come anytime now I had to get a jump start on Christmas. I am completely finished with all the gifts, so I will be sharing them with you in the next couple of weeks in scheduled posts while I am busy taking care of a new little baby!! yippee!
But until then, hop on over HERE where I have all my Christmas Ideas in one place. I hope that each of us can take the stress out of the holiday and remember the real reason for the season.
