Ok before you yell out in horror about even daring to talk about the C word.. (and with C word I totally mean Christmas!) take a minute to read this post! I promise its not as scary as you think!
I’m linking up with Shae from Yay For Home’s Things I Know
I know that there are only 100 Days until Christmas and I’m in planning mode already! Well along with planning a 6th birthday and a combined 4th/3rd birthday in November!
I know that being a mother to 5 kids and having 4 birthdays within weeks of Christmas I have to be organised and I mean super organised!! For the past two years we have hosted Christmas at our place so I like to get organised early!
Last year I also started planning Christmas early, with a young baby, I didnt want to be venturing to the shops during the Mad December shopping rush, so I created a Christmas Planner. A folder which I put all my Christmas Ideas, pictures I found in magazines, my Christmas Card List, and presents list. Already I have shared with you how I have organised our Christmas Layby’s which you can read all about here.
I know that there are many great websites where you can download Christmas Planners to print off, or you could even create your own. Last year I downloaded the planner from Christmas Organised.
Some of my favourite printables that I used last year were:
So from now until Christmas, on every Friday (seperate post from Things I Know…) I’m going to be sharing some of my Christmas Traditions, Crafts, Menu Planning, Decorations and much much more with you.
One thing I do know… I’m so excited about Christmas, I love the excitement it brings my children, teaching them the true meaning of Christmas while also getting to enjoy their childhood and all those traditions that come with that!
