Christmas To-Do List!

Covering all my Christmas bases...

Every year I make it a point to get a list together of everything I want or need to do for the holidays! 1. Because making lists is what I do. 2. There are just too many things to keep straight in my head when it comes to Christmas!

So I have it written all down on a sheet of paper- It is in the making and growing every time I remember something else to add, but I would like to share it with you all so you can add some Christmas cheer to your lives and make sure that YOU are covering all of YOUR Christmas bases!
