November means the holidays are here! And just like that, your planner got busy mysteriously adding a huge list of must do chores, activities, and all kinds of chaos while you were busy putting away all that Halloween decor. If you are like me, some of those items include getting ready for holiday guests. No matter if it’s a simply impromptu gathering of neighbors on a rare open weekend night or a scheduled family visit that has you doing your best to accommodate more people than your house can humanly hold, it’s game time to get ready and you are the coach.
To help you stay on track with holiday decor and so much more, check out our GO MOM! DIY Holiday Bundle. With 12 worksheets to get you started, you can't help but enjoy all the holidays have in store.
