I love having new and exciting projects here at the office. We are very busy all year long updating our systems, welcoming new franchises, and providing franchise support for our 36 franchises, but everything comes back to our consignors, shoppers and friends. This year we decided that we wanted to put together a project that would bring together all the moms that we meet from Hawaii to Baton Rouge!

I went shopping yesterday in a busy mall. Just last week I ended up with the responsibility for the grandparents gifts as illness will keep them from shopping. It's definitely easier to spend other people's money, but shopping for four children, your spouse, and yourself is time consuming. I set out yesterday determined and prepared to complete as much as I could in four hours.

A cute idea to help your little ones answer the question, "How many more days until Christmas?" is a countdown garland. There are many ideas on line and I am sharing a few with you from Familyfun.com.
1) Sweet Countdown: This is the easiest thing to do! I think you can still find this dot candy at the Dollar Tree. Cut it in strips and staple or tape together. Each day your kiddo can have a sweet snack and be able to "see" how many days are left until the 25th!

I encourage you to take the time to make a blessing list for yourself. In the hectic hours before you leave for grandparents or before the kids get up and demand your attention, focus for a minute on the blessings of your life.
Thankfulness is an antidote against stress, grumpiness, impatience and grumbling.
Enjoy your Thanksgiving...wherever you are, whomever you are with, and counting the blessings of your life.
