Looking Towards the Holidays


Having four munchkins makes the holidays hectic.  I have tried to make sure that we focus on family and giving, not how much loot can I get.  We had one Christmas, years ago when there was only two, where the little ones tore through presents, opened then set aside and asked for the next one.  The next year we instituted the one at a time policy.  As the brood grows up, and our house does not grow any large, I want to focus on family even more.  We don't have room for more stuff, nor do they need it.  In the last few days I have come across a few "catch phrases" that I would like to focus on.  The first one is "something you want, something you need, something to wear, something to read," and the second one is the five hands concept of give handmade, hand-me-down, secondhand, helping hand, hand-in-hand.  I believe our society is wrapped too tightly in stuff and the what can I get concept.  This year I want to get back to basics and focus on the little things.

Thanks for reading,
