December Daily - Day 7 & 8

Have you ever tried to do something to surprise someone else and doesn't quite turn out the way you expected? Well, I had one of those days on Friday. My husband has been working a lot of hours lately and under a lot of stress, so I thought I would go out and get the Christmas tree by myself and surprise him when he got home. Easy enough right? I went to the tree lot, picked out the tallest tree I could find and had the lot attendant load it into the car. I got home and then realized I couldn't get it out of the car! It was still early and none of the neighbors were home from work yet, so I had to wait for my son to get home and help me. Luckily he got there before hubby did. We were able to get the tree out of the car and everything turned out okay.

The picture lifts up and the journaling is underneath.

December 8th was a special day. Hubby and I went to pick up our Grand-daughter so that she could spend the night with us. When we got to our son's house they weren't there. We knew they were out looking for their Christmas tree so we drove over to the tree lot and surprised them. As soon as Khloë saw her Papa she was so excited she just giggled and giggled. We went back to their house so that Khloë could help decorate the Christmas tree and put the lights on.

When Khloë first saw the lights turned on she tried to blow them out like a candle. It was so cute, I had to get a picture of her with all the lights. Christmas is going to be so much fun this year.

Again, journaling is under the photo that flips up. The last picture shows how the tags for pages 7&8 fit into the book.

That's all for today. I know I'm still a couple days behind, but I am taking photos each day and taking notes about what I want to journal. I just have to find the time to put it all together. I also have to get some Christmas shopping done. I am usually already done by now, but this year just seems to be flying by. I hope I get everything done in time.
