Perhaps this year more than most, as many of us are spending so much time at's important to remember that too much stuff gets in the way of enjoying life.
This is especially true for children. More toys does not equal a better holiday. It's exciting for a short time, then over whelming and much less appreciated than a few thoughtful gifts and time together.
Its sounds corny, but that the time your family spends together, baking, hiking, playing games as part of your holiday traditions - those are the things that will provide a happy holiday to all and memories for your young child.

Wishing all of you a calm, happy, holiday season, full of connections and less stuff!
