How did you do with the Week 3 To Do List? Hopefully all the items have been completed and you are now ready for Week 4!
Just a quick reminder before we get started: These Weekly To Do lists are directly from The 12-Week Holiday Planner (affiliate link). Those of you who have purchased The Holiday Planner will have all the forms that go along with the To Do Lists. If you have not purchased the planner, then you will need to make your own forms or buy your own copy!
This is a fun week! You get to do some holiday baking! Make sure to make a schedule for the week so that you get all the baking done! Then after the baking is done, you get to jot down some gift ideas for the kids. How fun!
Note from Amy: I’m planning to make rolls, some freezer meals, and some sugar-free snacks for the Thanksgiving time frame. We always decorate for Christmas right after Thanksgiving with a big Decoration Day celebration, so I’ll try to pull together a few things for that as well!
Week 4: Baking Week
[ ] Holiday Baking! Set aside some time this week to do some holiday goodie making (things that you can stick in the freezer). You can bake items you plan to share or give away AND other goodies to have at family gatherings, OR just do one or the other! There will be another baking week closer to Christmas, so keep that in mind. Pull your List of Baked Items to Share/Give Away and the Holiday Baking Recipes filed under the Holiday Baking section and place in your binder behind your calendar for this week so they are ready to use! If you need some great holiday recipes, you can find some in my Homemade for the Holidays series or check Sheri’s Recipe Index or Amy’s Large Family Recipes page for more ideas!
[ ] Schedule Your Week! Use the calendar provided to schedule your week so you get all the baking done! Once your baking is done, be sure to file these forms back under the Holiday Baking section and note on the List of Baked Items to Share/Give Away form (filed in the Holiday Baking section) what you have completed.
[ ] Christmas Gift Ideas for Kids! Using the form provided, make lists of toys, books, and clothes that children would enjoy and keep the list handy for telling family members who ask what they would like.
Once you have completed this list, come back here and tell us about it! Let’s encourage each other to plug away at these “to do’s” now so that our holidays can be less stressful and more focused on Jesus!
