Enjoy your time!  Kids are going to have the best memories of holidays that are fun and relaxed, not picture perfect and stressful.  Keep things simple and take the time to play with your kids.  If some part of it is stressful it probably isn't worht it.

1 word - Booze

lol I'm kidding... kinda.

Ah ask for help, do a potluck so you aren't stuck cooking everything. Have the kids set the table, Prepare little things a day ahead of time. Make a list so you don't forget anything.

Give with your heart, not with what is or isn't in your wallet.  Sharing love and peace with everyone this holiday is more special than anything money can buy.

Plan ahead, make lists and don't let things stress you out.

- Make time to remember the reason for the season.  My church does an Advent by Candlelight each year which helps the ladies focus (at least for one night) on why we are celebrating.

- Only do what is important to you.  Don't do things just because everyone else is or you think its expected.  Its ok to not bake dozens of cookies if that's just additional stress & not something you enjoy.
