Holiday To Do list

I have so many things floating around in my head that I need to do for the holidays, get the rest of baby's stuff before he arrives, make gifts, shop, decorate, etc. If I don't write it down I am afraid I'll forget something important. If I write it down and stick it to my fridge I will never actually look at it.  So, here's my holiday to do list (which will likely continue to grow as I remember things that I need to do.)

  • Stock up on baby's essentials
    • Onesies
    • Receiving blankets
    • The rest of the gear we need
    • Clothes
  • Wash baby clothes and blankets
  • Get craft supplies from Michaels or AC Moore
    • I think I'll try to hit Michaels after work this week and then AC Moore on Friday since I'll be out that way shopping
  • Get fabric for the DIY hospital gown that I want to make. I actually want to make 2 of them so I'll get double the fabric.
  • Get fabric for receiving blankets
  • SEW!
  • Hire someone to remove the leaves from the yard and cut the grass (our mower stopped working and I don't really have the desire to do it all by hand 8 months pregnant)
  • Put up outside lights
  • Decorate for Christmas
  • Collect pictures for scrapbook gifts
  • Make scrapbook pages
  • Christmas cards (I think I may cheat this year and send out store bought cards)
  • Get oil changed in Snowball
  • Install car seat
I'm sure there's quite a bit I've left off, I'll catch up with it as I remember.
