Here we are, on the cusp of another Christmas. I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again, this Christmas will NOT be like the ones we’ve done before, you know what I mean, copious amounts of gift giving and kids tearing through wrapping paper like a starving man at Shoney’s.

Nope this year is going to be different and we started with the tree. Instead of the usual routine, pulling out and piling on the glitzy ornaments, we made our own, with messages of thanksgiving on each one. I must say I’m pretty proud of Casey and Cole and the things they were thankful for.

Take a listen to today’s Good Enough Mother minute (yes, I know it’s actually 21 seconds over one minute, so SUE me!) for the other things I am doing to keep the holiday special.

How will you do that? Is it important to you?
