    Happy Holidays

  • Editor's NoteDo you ever feel like the holidays get away from you? I certainly do. With our calendar jam packed with family events, school programs, and office parties I rarely have time to actually enjoy the holidays. This year I plan on taking time to truly embrace the holiday spirit. Translated that means I'm going to make a list of things I want to accomplish this season. I'm a bit of a list keeper, and I always feel a bit more in control of things when I'm working from a "to do" chart. I'd love to say that on my own I will remember all the fun holiday traditions we want to start this year, but sadly I won't unless I write it down.

    I thought I'd give you a peek into some of the items that made my "Holiday To Do" list:

    * Wrap up our holiday books. Then unwrap and read one each night.* Create an entire gingerbread village.* Drive through the illuminated holiday village in town.* Try new flavors of hot cocoa.* Purchase a gift for a child in need.* Create a Christmas playlist for my mp3 player.

    I'm already feeling reassured that my list will help me feel the magic of this holiday season. As you read through the pages of this book, take note of the ways our design team is also helping to make the season shine. I know you'll be inspired to create your own "Holiday To Do" list of memories and traditions you want to create and preserve this holiday season. Watch for helpful icons throughout the book that will help you "take note" of ways to make your own memories magical!

    Wishing you a happy holidays to you and yours!
