Yes, I use the irregular budget sheet. Our incomes vary so I have our regular budget that includes our regular monthly expenses that is based on the low end of our average paychecks, then have a list of any extra expenses (usually sinking fund type things like car repair, clothing, etc) that we put money in if our checks are larger than our set amount on our regular budget.
I have Christmas and Gifts included in our regular monthly budget.
Pretty much done. .. just waiting to see if we are getting more money from DH's short term disability... we had to postpone his recheck appointmentand not sure std will pay the rest for the week it was postponed. (they only paid a partial payment up to when his original appt was supposed to be.)

Not a copy over, not an average of previous months. Zero-based, as Dave teaches it, for THIS month (May and June are graduation and wedding months). Every dollar has to have a name.
Check in when it's on paper (or electronic), not a fantasy budget in your mind. On purpose, on paper, BEFORE THE MONTH BEGINS. If you're married YOUR SPOUSE GETS A VOTE, so check-in AFTER you've had your budget meeting WITH them.
