Supersisters Weekend Roundup

By now you are in a holiday-induced coma, vowing to yourself you will never let yourself eat this many Christmas cookies ever, ever again. I feel your pain, sisters. I'm right there with you. While you contemplate all the nutritional changes you'll make in the New Year, let me direct you to the finest of the web this last week.

Amanda Soule has a lovely photo essay up highlighting everything lovely about winter and the season. I love the quiet repose of these photos and all the hope and promise they carry.

Amy Sharp of Doobleh-vay has a fantastic solution for saying thank you this holiday season. Skip the handwritten notes (which too often never make it to the mailbox anyway) and try this lovely web-friendly bit of gratitude instead. I think any grandparent in America would be pleased as punch to be thanked in this particular way.

Do you feel like you spent too much money this holiday season? Now is as good a time as any to get back on the bandwagon and recommit to becoming a picture of fiscal responsibility in 2009. If you need a sister or two to help you get back on track, join the Poverty Party and make saving (and no more frivolous spending) fun.

And last but not least, if you think this is the very last year you can pull off Santa at your house, take this good advice from Brene Brown--mom extraordinaire--who helped her own dear girl receive the truth about Santa without losing any sparkle or magic to her holiday.

what a touching story and good advice from Brene Brown. when i was a little girl my mom was in this same predicament. when my suspicions finally got the better of me, i asked her if she was the tooth fairy. when she said that yes, she was, i asked if that meant she was santa and the easter bunny too. she said yes, she was all of those things. as she waited for my tears, her mind racing for the "right" answers, i looked into her eyes and said "does dad know?" while my story does not necessarily tug at the heart strings as hers does, not a holiday goes by that my mom doesn't share that story with friends and family who think it might be their year for "the talk." happy jolly days!
