Simplifying Christmas

When I read about this at Econobusters today, I knew I had to check it out. We don't live too simply(I guess that depends upon who you compare us to) and we don't live extravagantly either but I feel we could always live a little more simply. I know some things that I want to do this year that we haven't in the past. And honestly, I don't know if one could be more simple than we were last year since we had a baby on December 15th.

Some things I would like to do:

The typical home decorations with the blessings

Baking (we are going to make cookies and treats for the ladies' tea this year)

Go to the gingerbread house contest here in town

Drive around and drink hot cocoa and look at light displays and ice sculptures

Visit Christmas on Ice here in our little town

Watch Christmas movies by a warm fire with my family

Eat homemade cookies and candies

Ride snowmachines with my blessings



May the Lord find us faithful.


  1. Those all sound like wonderful things to do together! I want to focus on more baking this year too. I was also thinking of a ladies tea party with my close friends and their daughters. Thanks for signing up! Please continue to check starting December 1st there will be "more" to read. :D

  2. I pray that your Christmas season is a blessed one. Forgive me for neglecting you. And I think I even missed your birthday? I hope it was happy!


  3. Hello there Laura! I just wanted to let you know that the Simplifying Christmas Meme is underway.

    So come on over and read, and take a look at the other ladies blogs for some great ideas ¢¾
