You are so organized, Relyn! I haven't planned past this Saturday. There are so many good things on your list, too. I may have to "borrow" a few of your ideas...

Just the other day I thought that I'd like to watch It's a Wonderful Life over the holidays. We used to watch those old movies with my dad. Those were good memories. So I'll add that to my soon-to-be-list. Thanks, Relyn.

I want to do #4 over and over. I'll be doing #12 at about the same time that you are. And #27 is a go as of today. But as for the rest of the days... beats me what we'll be doing! We fly by the seat of our pants at this time of year.

Rita said...

A lovely list and month. Oh I would like a girl day at Silver Dollar City. It has been 40 years since I was there. Enjoy the month, it looks extra special. Love the lights everywhere too.

Tracy said...

Oh, this is good, Relyn! Next year I hope to do us a proper grown up calendar. I have the materials, but not gonna happen this year. LOL... Mostly because we'll be heading to the US in a couple weeks. That's that best way I can think of to celebrate--so very excited! :o) Happy Weekend, my friend ((HUGS))

This time of year, "It's A Wonderful Life" is an absolute "must". I love that movie.
Enjoy it all.
