25 Days Of Countdown Fun - Christmas Activity Advent

During Christmas one of the main traditions we do through out the month is called the “25 Days of Christmas”.

We count down the days by doing daily holiday activities. Many of these are things you already do during this time of year but this makes it memorable. Maybe 25 days is more then you want to do why not try a 12 or 10 day count down. remember the goal is to simplify and have fun so do what works for your family and your schedule.

How to create your own Christmas countdown plan:

STEP 1: First I begin by going through my list I have saved from year to year of over 40 various activity ideas. ( list is below)

STEP 2: Next, I then choose 25 ideas I want to do that particular year. A few examples are: decorate a tree, make cookies, visit Santa Clause, read the Christmas story, movie night, serve sparkling Cider for dinner etc. Like I said, many of these are activities you already do with your families. We are just creating a little more Christmas excitement.

STEP 3: Then I look at my calendar and see which days I can do each of my chosen activities and I write them on my calendar.

STEP 4 : Next, I go to my computer and type up little notes to go with each activity such a “ Artists are you ready? It’s time to make a masterpiece in our bonus room” This is for the day I allow my kids to paint the windows with a Christmas scene. Another example is “Get your hammers and nails out it’s time to build and decorate” did you guess this one? Time for my kids to create a ginger bread house.

STEP 5: Then you can do a variety of things with these notes :

* place each note in a separate numbered envelope. Each day your children can open an envelope and read what that days activity is. I do not recommend you seal the envelope until you hand it to your kids because if life goes crazy and you were planning to see Santa but Suzy got sick, you can quickly change it around. Which is also why it is important to keep a list of which days you are doing what.

* Place each note in little numbered boxes or Chinese take out boxes hung on a small tree. You can download 24/7 MOMS 25 day numbers by clicking here.

* Place each note in a numbered Bag. You can download our 25 day count down numbers by clicking here.

*Hang 25 small stockings on a clothes line and place a number on each stocking . Need numbers get our free ones that you can download here.

*Purchase an Advent Calender with pockets to place the notes in.

*Purchase an Advent curio cabinet with little drawers to place each note in.

Keep it simple choose carefully what activities you will do so that you do not become overwhelmed. Make this season a time to make memories with your kids and make it special.

This is the time of year we Celebrate the birth of Jesus, not living each day in complete stress and on overload. Make it Simple. Make it Fun!

WIN - Teleflora - 25 Days of Christmas Giveaways

Teleflora – Send a Hug Bouquet

A sweet snowman hugging a container of fresh flowers conveys the joys and warmth of the snowy season. It’s the perfect gift for friends and family, colleagues, neighbors – anyone who needs a smile. The great thing about this bouquet is its versatility – it’s festive without being too Christmas-focused – ideal if you need a gift for someone you don’t know well. It will fit into almost any décor and you can put it out in early December and use it throughout the winter. Another plus: It’s very cost-effective as a gift because you can send it to a whole family for all of them to enjoy (without having to send each one a gift). And it’s calorie free!

About Teleflora: At Teleflora, we're proud to have been connecting customers with the nation's best florists for more than 75 years. Headquartered in Los Angeles, California, Teleflora has over 16,000 member florists throughout the U.S. and Canada, with an additional 20,000 affiliated florists outside North America. This extensive network, coupled with our commitment to exceptional customer service, means that when you send flowers from Teleflora, you can be confident that you’re sending the best.

Why We’re Different: Some other online flower companies pre-package their flowers in nondescript cardboard boxes, which are loaded onto trucks and dropped at the recipient’s door. Once they finally get inside, the flowers may be damaged or dehydrated. But a Teleflora bouquet is different. All of our floral arrangements are artistically arranged by a local florist using only the freshest flowers available, and each gift is personally delivered in a vase - in most cases, the same day you place your order.

6 Easy Steps For A Perfect Buffet Dinner

By: Leslie Pleasants
24/7 MOMS Home Keeping Editor

Organize, organize, organize is the key to any successful event that can actual be stress free! Here are some tips for you to have that perfect dinner party for the holidays!

1) Labeling Your Serving Dishes: Write out everything that you are having for the dinner. I like to use little sticky note pads. Then pull out all your bowls, platters, etc.. Start deciding where all the food will be going in... mashed potatoes are going in this bowl. Then mark it with the sticky note. Also don't forget to get all your serving utensils that you will need and place them with the appropriate dish. Great idea is to even lay it all out where they are going to be to see how it all looks... if they fit. Make sure to leave some space for people to place their plate on the table to make it easier for them to dish their food.

2) Identification Cards: You might know what the food is but not everyone might know. A good way and looks great too is to label each of your foods. You can purchase place cards that you can use to label your food at the Dollar Tree... or make your own.

3) Different Heights: Creating different heights for your buffet not only makes it look professional but it is also easier for those farther away items to be reached with out dipping a sleeve in another dish. You can use cake stands or even an upside down bowl. Just make sure its all secure. If have to use a small piece of non slip material underneath.

4) Decorations: To create your buffet table to all flow together make sure your serving dishes and decorations go together. You could add something as simple as a few flowers or candles. Also good idea is to use a darker color table cloth on your buffet table to hide those little spills.

5) Flow: Make sure there is a beginning and end to your buffet table. You want a good flow so they can get their food fast and sit down. Is there enough space around your buffet table for people to get in and out? Keep condiments on their tables(butter, salt & pepper)... if its on the buffet table it will slow people down.

6) Don't Mix: Keep your drinks on a separate table... separate location. You want to be able to focus on the food and getting it there still hot. You don't need people in the way trying to get their beverages. Keep a separate table with a bucket of ice. Even move the coffee pot to this table. That way your guest don't have to ask you for anything... they can get all their beverages in one location

Grab a Binder It's Time To Plan

WIN: This Weeks Sears LG LG Stainless Steel 30 in. Microhood Combination w/ Warming Lamp

What was life like without microwaves? I often say we live in a microwave world we want it quick and simple, which is exactly what a microwave does in our mom world of cooking.

Save TimeWith an Over the Range Microwave Oven, strong ventilation is key. That's why LG has created the QuietPower™ vent, which does the job quietly, without interrupting your life

Space SaverThis microwave will help you cook the perfect meal every time and match your design sensibilities. Moving the controls to the bottom of this microwave oven gives it a unique look suitable for your design sensibilities

Save EffortOver the Range microwaves have always been great at capturing the smoke from the back burners of your stovetop, but not the front burners. LG introduces the Extenda™ Vent, which covers the entire cooking surface allowing for even greater ventilation

LG revolutionizes microwave cooking with the introduction of the first Warming Lamp. The warming lamp uses a radiant heating element to keep food warm, as opposed to microwaves or a hot bulb
Eliminate the guesswork in cooking. Humidity-sensing technology determines when food is cooked and automatically turns off the microwave to prevent the over- or under-cooking of meals

WIN - One Hand, Two Hands book - 25 Days of Christmas Giveaways

One Hand, Two Hands by Max Lucado

A delightful way to show little ones how their hands are a blessing from God that they can use to do help others.

Written in rhyming text and illustrated with the charming art of Gaby Hansen, this simple message of God’s blessing of hands not only entertains . . . as it teaches what wonderful things our hands can do from scratching, latching, and petting a pup to washing dishes with mommy and putting toys in a box . . . but it also conveys the important message: We can use God’s gift of hands to show our love for Him by helping others. The book ends tenderly with a prayer of thanks to God for hands and asks Him to use them again:

One hand, two hands,
Five fingers, ten.
God, thanks, for my hands.
Please, use them again.

by: Jeanie Cullip
24/7 MOMS Inspiration Editor

Each day we prepare ourselves for what we have ahead of us. Those women working outside of the home may place on a suit and bring her briefcase. Those women working in the home place on a pair of pants and shirt. Both choices allow each woman to successfully go about her day.

The bible tells us a christian woman whether working in or out of the home must make special preparations each day so that she may be spiritually ready as well.

Here are a list of seven items according to Ephesians 6:14-18 a Christian woman should place on:

1. Accessories
Truth = knowing what is right (Ephesians 6:14a)

2. Dress
Righteousness = Doing what is right (Ephesians 6:14b)
3. Shoes
Peace = Being in right relationship with God, yourself and others (Ephesians 6:15)

4. Purse
Faith = Believing God will turn everything for His glory. ( Ephesians 6:16)

5. Hat
Salvation = Trusting that you are right with God because of what Jesus
accomplished on the cross (Ephesians 6:17a)

6. Bible
The Word of God = Giving us the wisdom we need to understand truth, righteousness, peace, faith and salvation. (Ephesians 6:17b)

7. Prayer
Conversation with our Lord who gives us these things so that we are able
to do what is right (Ephesians 6:18)

As Christian women we are never fully dressed, nor completely prepared for your day without these things above.

As a mom it is our responsibility that our family is also prepared for their day as well.
