Warning! Site Updates Underway

Under Construction

Our site network is undergoing a major upgrade; if you can read this, you've reached the new version of Organized Christmas.

As part of the upgrade, we've weeded out stale pages, reorganized the entire printables library, and consolidated many pages so it's easier to find the information you need.

While we've done our best to get things tidy and squared away, expect to see a few rough edges over the next few days. Behind the scenes, we're working fast and furiously to mop up the last loose ends--so thanks for your patience!

From the mom's chair, I've had a close-up view of the very special strains and stresses encountered by our young people in service, and by the family members who support them as they serve.

Over the years, I've watched my son progress from recruit to Staff Sergeant, and held him close in my heart as he went through two overseas deployments.

On September 11, 2001, Ryan called me from his barracks before dawn to let me know his unit had been placed on high alert--and that call led to this writer's most-read, most-published piece of work: My Child, My Home, My Country: A Marine Mom Speaks. That essay still speaks for my feelings today.    Read More >>
