14 Christmas Ideas For Busy Moms

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.
