And all of these things mean there are things to be done:
1. Buy birthday balloons, plates, candles.
2. Wrap gifts
3. Send Thirty One evites out and buy party supplies - beverages, food, cups, and plates
4. Create a Shopping list for the "Stock the Cabinet" event
5. Work on Thanksgiving crafts with the kids
6. Create a "thankful tree"
7. Reserve room and tickets for Opryland trip
8. Get Chloe a Christmas dress and Brody a Christmas outfit
9. Gift for my "secret sister"
10. Christmas shopping for family
11. Christmas crafts - make a list of several to do with the kids and buy supplies
12. Make Christmas mesh wreath for front door
13. Buy Christmas gift for the CFA parties
14. Shopping for Christmas gifts for family in need with the kiddos - get the list of sizes and toy preferences
15. Come up with Elf of the Shelf creative "hiding places" for 30 days worth.
16. Get list idea from Pinterest for the 12 days of Christmas things for David and go shopping

And now I need to get on Pinterest and start my craft list so I can start my supply list and then get to work.
