Our Family List

So my goal was to have each list be 50 items long. Well that isn't quite working out. Some are shorter (i.e. Home List) and some may be longer...we'll see :)
Also there may be some overlapping of items...but since this is my blog and my rules I can make them up as I go along. Overlapping is great! Because we will do ONE thing and get to mark it off of multiple lists!!!!
