Holiday Christmas Planning Calendar 2011

By October 22, 2011 No Comments

Another year, another Holiday Christmas Planning Calendar. Every year I revise this based on trips, family events and my calling at church. December is a time to be spent with family, attend school concerts, create memories, and ponder the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ.

I love using this calendar because it helps me pace myself. These tasks or projects are on my Google calendar as an ALL Day event. I repeat them each year. I love that because I don’t have to “reinvent the wheel.” Feel free to copy, revise and create one of your own.
