{christmas} My Christmas Season Goals 2012

1. Be okay with simple.  I have a newborn in the house this year, so all of my lofty baking and crafting plans just may not happen.  And that's okay.  My hope is to try ONE new recipe and ONE crafty project with the boys.  Anything more is just icing on the cake.

2. Quality is more important than quantity.  The kids don't need gobs of new toys, regardless of the pressure from outside sources.  A few thoughtfully planned gifts are more than enough.

3. Corny and cliche, but true: Remember the reason for the season.  I want to make an effort this year to keep my eyes on the bigger picture, instead of getting bogged down on the details.     

In order to fully experience this beautiful season, I'm taking a blogging break throughout December.  I want to be fully present to my little family!  But be sure to check back here at the Big White Farmhouse in January...I've got big plans for this space! 

Wishing you and yours a blessed Advent season! xo
