Christmas Countdown Day 42: Holidays Ahead!

We did it! Time to look ahead to the holiday season ... because it's here! 

For the past six weeks, we've been preparing for Christmas together. We've assembled a Christmas planner, organized gifts and giving, and conquered holiday chaos in the kitchen. Each day, we've pondered new innovations and old traditions, moving ever closer to our goal: a serene, joyous holiday season.

Christmas Countdown Day 38: Make Room for New Toys

Santa's coming ... will there be room to store new toys? 

Adding Santa's bounty to overstuffed kids' rooms is a recipe for January clutter disaster--and don't even try to tell this Nana to scale back on presents for the grandchildren. Bah, humbug!

About this time of year, it's a good idea to contemplate the toy situation in your child's room.
