The Christmas Countdown

In my house, we begin planning for Christmas when August rolls around. I already have my list ready to go with the names of our gift recipients tagged with gifts that we would like to purchase. We really enjoy Christmas shopping!

A friend of mine is much more organized than me when it comes to Christmas. She will be finished by November, and when I say finished, I not only mean with shopping, but with wrapping, as well!  It’s a pretty smart idea – she wraps as she buys. I’m not that good.

This Christmas, as you plan a countdown for your kiddos, plan a countdown for your hubby (or your wife), too. I saw this on Pinterest tonight, and it looks like fun! I always enjoy cool gifts.

Speaking of cool gifts, comment below with cool gift ideas. Some of our recent cool gifts to give have been:

  • Discovery Flights – Midwest Aviation in West Paducah, KY offers flights over the area. In the past 2 years, we have given our fathers gift certificates to enjoy this. My dad loved it so much, he mentioned that he would like to do it again. It’s around $100 and has to be used within 90 days.
  • Magazine Subscriptions
  • Junie B. Jones for my sweet Reading Pal

Christmas is so much fun we are just as excited to give as to receive!

Share your coolest gift ideas!


I am a mom of 3 adorable kiddos born in 3 consecutive years. I juggle daily with work outside of the home, managing a family, keeping a house, connecting socially, loving and adoring my husband, and seeking to grow closer with my heavenly Father each step of the way . . . however, this blog will prove my inadequacies in all of the mentioned areas. Humbly, I pray that as I journey through this world of blogging, I will grow closer to my Father and others will be drawn to His feet in praise, as well.
