Anyone feeling a bit like this?
Thanksgiving and Christmas is a lot of fun
(forgive me for stating the obvious), it's also a LOT of work!
I've done most of my shopping online this year and that's simplified things dramatically. I've also reduced my baking to just one type of Christmas Cookie. (OK, make that two types of cookies.) We've also put up a smaller tree and haven't decorated the outside of our house at all. To read this makes us sound a bit like the ol' green Grinch, but that's actually not the case at all. We're still having fun anticipating Christmas and being around our family. Things are very good here, but time for all the "extras" is almost non-existent, so we cut back where we can so we CAN enjoy the most important things.

Fun times during Thanksgiving holiday!
All these lovely girls are at the top of my Christmas List. We absolutely could never "cut back" here!
Have you done anything to "cut back" during this year's Christmas season? I'd love to hear what you've done.
