It's here! Christmas week. I'm finally ready for it to be here. Shopping is done. Christmas cards and letters are sent. Presents are under the tree and stuffed in stockings.
I had to be ok with not doing some things that I normally do. I didn't do any cookie trays for friends. Gulp. I need to be ok with that. I didn't do gingerbread houses with the kids. Still ok. I didn't take the kids to pick new Christmas tree ornaments this year. Yep.....we are all still ok. But we do have lots of fun things planned involving hot cocoa, Christmas lights, presents, multiple feasts, movies, games and special Christmas stories.
I'm realizing that there are just going to be some years where life gets too busy and it's time to shave off the to-do list and rest in less.
Less is good.
Less is not near as stressful.
Less is much more simple.
So here's what this weeks menu looks like.
Peanut Butter toast and fruit
Oatmeal with fruit and milk
Pineapple Cottage Cheese Rings
Blueberry Pancakes with syrup
Turkey Vegetable Soup, Peasant Bread
Thanksgiving Memories Casserole
Burrito Pie, green salad
Eggs, hash browns, toast
