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!
As the mother of a U.S. Marine, and mother-in-law to a sailor in the U.S. Navy, Veterans Day has special meaning for me. Today, I would like to thank my son Ryan and my daughter-in-law Elizabeth for their service to our country--and extend that gratitude to all America's veterans and active duty service members.
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.
Haul out the pencils! It's time to write letters to Santa Claus.
Parents, do remember to save children's letters to Santa from year to year. Everyone will enjoy watching the lists (and the handwriting) grow over the years--and the result will spark family scrapbooks.
