Time to come out of the closet? or Week Nine of the Holiday Grand Plan!

This week on the Holiday Grand plan it is all about the Pantry and the Closets. I keep on top of my closets because it is something that I can do without causing myself any distress. I am always too pleased to get rid of clothes that I don't like for one reason or another! Of course I also have to keep on top of it because I store Christmas and Birthday gifts in our closet and if I don't know what is in there, I am bound to buy more than one of something...

This week I am also going to help Top Ender to decorate our home for Halloween, we have most of our decorations for outside, but this year I am going to let her decorate the window with window pens and hang garlands inside.

As we don't have Thanksgiving, I will start to arrange our Bonfire Night or Guy Fawkes Party. We will have fireworks in our garden, and a small meal which needs to be arranged! It is my Mum, Sister and partner and Cousin and Baby Cousin that come, so it doesn't need to be anything fancy!

This week I also need to carry on with the holiday prep which this week consists of:
*Make one batch of Holiday Goodies.
*Make one extra meal for freezer again labeled HOLIDAY MEAL.
*Buy two canned food items from menus
*Work at least 1 hour a day on homemade gifts.

Also this week I will;
*Continue with Top Ender writing her Christmas cards to the children in her year
*Start to write our family Christmas cards

And we will continue to;
*Look for Holiday Outfits for Me (as everyone else is sorted, but Daddy needs a new shirt!)
*Stock the Mummy Christmas Shop
*Watch one Christmas film as a family a week (although we may do two as it is half term!)
