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.

Every now and then I get a letter from a person I've never met thanking me for having our sales. It's a strange feeling to be personally thanked by someone you've never met, and yet, it reminds me of one of our KEY values of SERVICE. I was touched by this letter and asked permission to reprint parts of it. As a bonus, I got to meet the writer, Amanda, in NWA just last month. This is a good reminder of why we do what we do.
