I think you know that I feel much the same. Thanksgiving came and went so quickly this year...and I know it will be a fast month now till Christmas! When we left my folks' on Saturday, we said "See you in 3 weeks!". We're getting togeter on the 19-20th this year and it will be so quick till it's here.

If you figure out how to hold on to it, to get it to SLOW DOWN...please share!

I will, Omaha--I promise! I would pay millions if someone could bottle that up, wouldn't you?

Good article. I think the holidays are the time when you build the greatest memories with your children. YES! They are extremely stressful at times, but you just need to go back and act like a kid sometimes.

You're right--sometimes it's hard to hold onto the memory-making, when you're negotiating all the stress!
