HGP - Holiday Prep Week Two

August 30th kick-started the Holiday Grand Plan at Organized Christmas.  Week one was dedicated to the front porch. This is week two: The Livingroom.

In addition to cleaning our homes we are also prepping for the upcoming Holidays - Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years. So during each week we also take time to get things ready like creating gift lists, making a budget, planning menus, etc.

Week two is a little more challenging.  For week two we're asked to answer questions like, what does the holidays mean to us, what traditions are important, etc. If you want to see more check out week two of the HGP.  

Week two also suggests that we start stocking up the pantry with extra flour, sugar, etc. for the tons of baking some of us will be doing.  I had a list of desserts I want to make but I have been finding other recipes I want to try so my list keeps changing.  My goal this week will be to come to a final decision of what I will make. That's it. No more changes.  One item I will definately be making are those delicious Oreo Balls.  My family and co-workers absolutely love them. Just yesterday a co-worker was asking me about them. No kidding.
