Normally, around the end of October, I take some time to ask each of my family what some of their favorite winter meals are so I can start planning a winter menu.
Each one chooses a different meal and it varies from year to year. This is a good way to let them know how special they are to me.
I also ask them if we could only do 1 winter/Christmas activity, what would it be. Doing this is a great way to cut the busy out of your holiday season. Again its,all in an attempt to keep the focus on Christ while building family memories.
