Next is the Master To Do List that needs to get broken down. I also have a mater calendar I made using the spreadsheet application. It has all the weeks running from Oct. 10 to Jan. 1, all on one sheet. I'm using ONLY for holidays and events and scheduling holiday tasks, like a full day of baking or decorating. No doctor appointments, etc. on this calendar!
Next is a small section for Halloween. I'm going to put costume notes for the kids here, as well as recipes and some fun activities for the the kids. (coloring sheets, craft instructions, etc.)
For Thanksgiving (my favorite holiday!!!) I have a planner sheet (see picture below) that has a small calendar for that week. It's a busy week for my family, as this year my oldest sons birthday is the Sunday before, we have separate dinners for my and my husbands side of the family and then the Saturday after we head up to my aunts to be wit my moms side! Add in the hunting season and it's BUSY! So this is where I'll put the menu for the meal I do, recipes and lists of what I am making for others meals.
