In my 9 years of being a stay at home mom, I know how busy the holiday season can be. The older the kids get, the busier our life gets. I have one child who insists on celebrating every holiday no matter what is going on in our life. Because of this, I’ve gathered quite a few ways to celebrate the season. Below, you’ll find my favorite posts on how to celebrate Christmas when you don’t have time on your side.
