We’re full on into December now, my friends.  You’re probably frantically gift-listing, craft-listing, food-listing… You know, all those things we mamas and dadas do to make the holidays as memorable for our littles as we possibly can.  It. is. exhausting.

But usually worth it.  Usually.

So I’ve put together a list of awesome Christmas ideas from myself and a few blogger friends to help you complete those lists.  You know I love ya.
