tis the season

Now that Thanksgiving has passed all of our attention is focused on Christmas, which I love.

(This is a card that I created for Jillibean Soup for our Petaloo Flowers feature. You can see more of the designer's work with Petaloo on the Jillibean blog today)

It truly is the most wonderful time of the year.

It is a time when we think about others more, think about the birth of Jesus, try to be kinder and find ways to help others in need. It brings out the best in a lot of people.

One thing that we do as a family is choose someone to do "Secret Santa" things for. It's usually someone the kids know from school who could use a little extra cheer, someone who might not have much for Christmas otherwise. We make treats, buy gifts and do fun things for them in the days before Christmas. It's so much fun for the kids (and us!) to drop things off, ring the doorbell and then take off down the street!

What kinds of things do you do to bring Christmas cheer?
