31 Days: Holiday Planner 2014 Wrap Up & Link Up!

Good afternoon, friends! 
If you're just joining us, we've been spending the month preparing a Holiday Planner to help organize everything for the fall & winter holidays. The beginning post (and a list of all posts from the month!) can be found here...

Can you believe we're on the last day?! I'm so sorry I left ya'll hanging with no post yesterday- pregnancy doctor appointments and such ended up running long and the day just got away from me! Just one of those days... But have no fear! TODAY I'll be sharing with you my binder, and we'll combine it with the link up party! You share yours, and I'll share mine! Sound like a deal? Great! I can't wait to see what ya'll have been working on :)

Let's start by doing a recap of all the fun this week! Most days have FREE printables that were offered, so make sure you check them ALL out! 

Day 30/31: Wrap Up & Linky Party!  *** you are HERE ***

If you want to see all of the FREE printables in one location, and a few extra freebies that I've posted on my blog in years past, check out the "Holiday Planner" link at the top of any blog page, or simply click the link below! 

So here's what my Holiday Planner 2014 ended up with in each section....
  • Autumn Family Fun "bucket list" printable
  • Autumn Festivities printable
  • Autumn Homeschooling printable

  • Thanksgiving Festivities printable
  • Thanksgiving Menu Ideas
  • Thanksgiving Menu Plan
  • Thanksgiving Grocery List

Decor (for autumn)
  • Autumn Decor Ideas
  • lots of magazine tear outs for inspiration

  • 3 Christmas Projects printables (found in "Extra Printables" post)... I printed out 3 copies, one each for CRAFTS to make, GIFTS to make, and DECOR to make! I also put a star (*) next to items that need to be done before Advent begins, like our Advent wreath needs to be assembled, the Jesse Tree ornaments need to be made (since I'm doing it like an "Advent" Jesse Tree where the wee one opens up a new envelope each day with the ornament for the day) etc. 
  • Christmas Family Fun "bucket list" printable
  • Christmas Festivities printable
  • Christmas Homeschooling

  • 2 Advent:Epiphany Calendars (found in "Extra Printables" post)- one keeps track of my Scripture study, Jesse Tree ornaments, and Nativity figures to add each day and the other tracks my Christmas Carol study, additional Scripture studies, and "Names of Jesus" study
  • Master Advent Planner printable
  • Jesse Tree paper ornament print outs for the wee one to color 
  • The "Names of Jesus" study print outs
  • "O Antiphons" study print outs
  • "Twelve Days of Christmas: the true meaning behind the song" study print outs
  • ... throughout I'll be adding in print outs for the Christmas Carol study as I do them each day, so I have them for reference in years to come!

Meals (for Christmas/Advent)
  • 6 Christmas Weekly Menus (found in "Extra Printables" post)- one for each week of the Advent through Epiphany season!
  • Christmas Eve Menu Ideas & Menu Plan printables
  • Christmas Day Menu Ideas & Menu Plan printables
  • Epiphany Menu Ideas & Menu Plan printables
  • Christmas Grocery List printable (one consolidated list for both Christmas Eve & Day meals)
  • Epiphany Grocery List printable

Decor (for Christmas/Advent)
  • Christmas Decor Ideas printable
  • lots of magazine tear outs for inspiration

  • Christmas Card Tracker printable
  • 4 Christmas Gifting printable- one for each member of the family, and one for each side of our family (parents/siblings)
  • Christmas Gift Ledger printable
  • lots of magazine tear outs for DIY gift ideas

New Years
  • New Years Countdown Fun printable
  • New Years Festivities printable
  • New Years Menu Ideas & Meal Plan printables
  • New Years Grocery Shopping printable

Now I've shown you a little of what all goes into my Holiday Planner, now it's time for you to share what you've been working on!! I can't wait to see your planners :) Link up any posts or pictures- whether it's your whole binder or just one list that you've been working on, let's see it!

Just leave a comment below with your link! :)

Thank you SO much to everyone who has faithfully read, just stumbled upon for a post or two, or merely grabbed a printable here and there! I hope some of what I've shared over the past month you've found useful. I'll be continuing to share holiday-related posts (like my autumn mantle and wreath, themed lunches for the little one, Scripture study tools, and more!) in the upcoming months, so I hope you'll check back in and check them out ;)
