    We have created a displaced person’s Thanksgiving party with all our friends who have family too far away for a Thanksgiving visit. It’s nice to have a drama free holiday and everyone brings a dish to share.

    Our church has two services on Christmas Eve, one at 7pm and one at 11pm. I love to host an open-house between the services. Because the 7pm service is held in a barn everyone is very chilly, so we have lots of hot(!) coffee and warm spiced cider and of course cookies.

    My holiday tradition is spend the weekend before Thanksgiving cooking with the girls for Thanksgiving. We choose one item to make each year that freezes easy and can be served for dinner! This year was 600 pierogi’s!

    Cook desserts and sides the night before or in your slow cooker. The more you prepare ahead of time, the easier it is to enjoy your company.

    My tip is to do as much as you can the days before…set the table, get your dishes out, make whatever food that you can the night before, etc..

    My holiday tip is simple – the less fuss and over spending – the more you will enjoy the holiday season. We try to put aside $$ the entire year to fund Xmas so the money “pinch” is not as acute. WE have 4 children and really enjoy playing xmas music on the Ipod while we decorate cookies, decorate the house, front yard and finally the Xmas tree.

    When I make a turkey, I don’t stress. I just follow the directions right on the bag and add a stick of butter inside and another one rubbed all over the outside and between the skin and the meat. It comes out PERFECT! Focus on being thankful!
