Holiday Grand Plan - Week 2

Week two of the Holiday Grand Plan is Living Room/Question Week.  This is a good time to take a look Christmases past.  Decide what worked, what you want to do again, and what you can let go.  Ask your family what they like best about the holidays and which things they would be happier without this year. 

Here is my week two list:

~Make and freeze one extra meal - I'm making macaroni & cheese
~Print Christmas card labels
~Clean living room
~Wash outside trash can
~Work on homemade gifts
~Work on Christmas cards
~Make and freeze one batch of crescent rolls for church dinner next month

I am happy to report that I got a good start on my Christmas cards on Saturday.  I chose a simpler design this year and embossed the front with a Cuttlebug embossing folder.  I should be able to finish these up this week.

Cleaning the living room will be an easy task since I did a bunch of work in that room several weeks ago.  Yesterday I organized the television cabinet and removed the cover from the couch.  It looks like a brand new couch.  It is amazing what a change in pattern will do.  The main thing left is to give the living room a good vacuuming.

For homemade gifts I will be knitting scarves this week (and probably for a few weeks).  Most of those will need to be mailed so I need to finish them first.  I found the yarn for them on discount so it will be a nice but inexpensive gift.

I will be back with an update over the weekend!
