December Daily 11-13

I'm back. I got a few more pages done. I'm really trying to get caught up before the end of the year. Not sure I'm going to make it though.

December 11
Khloë had a Christmas party at her school and we were all invited. It was so much fun seeing her go through each craft station. They made Christmas trees out of sugar cones and frosting, reindeer food, ornaments and hot cocoa. They even had Santa stop by to see all the kids.

December 12
After the Christmas party the girls came home with us for the weekend. We went on a walk through the nature park, Went to the bank so the girls could make a deposit in their savings account, rode a train, a merry go round and went to the Jelly Belly store. For lunch we took the girls to Pieology so they could make their own pizzas. We had so much fun.

December 13
On Sunday morning we woke up to Khloë and Kylee's elves trying to make us breakfast. They did a good job except the breakfast tasted a little like plastic. Lol.

It has been such a fun weekend. I'm glad I have pictures to keep and share with the girls when they get older.

December Daily 7-10

Happy After Christmas! Now that the celebrations are behind us I'm slowly getting caught up on my December Daily. I have all of my pictures printed up to today. It's just a matter of finding enough time to make my pages. For now I have December 7th thru the 10th.

December 7
Earlier in the month I mentioned that we went to cut our own tree down for the first time. It was beautiful at the tree farm, but when we got home we quickly came to the conclusion that we must have gotten the wrong tree. It was the scrawniest, saddest looking tree we've ever had. I went to Lowes to get a new tree topper and right out front were some beautiful trees that cost half as much as what we paid. I was very tempted to buy one, but I didn't.

December 8
I had an appointment to get a touch-up on my highlights, but somehow changed my mind when I sat in the chair. The girl that does my hair confirmed that we were just doing the usual and somehow, out of my mouth, came "I think I want to go darker".  She was reluctant and gave me plenty of time to change my mind, but I insisted. (I know it's a little poofy in the second picture. Not sure what happened) I guess we will see how long it takes to lighten up.

December 9
After work we decided to try something new and headed out to Pieology for dinner. It's kinda like a Subway where you can see all the pizza toppings in front of you and you tell the person behind the counter what to add to your dough as you go down the counter. We each had our own creation and it was yummy!

December 10
Finally I was addressing and mailing our Christmas cards. I had bought a couple of kits so I had these done weeks ago. I just kept forgetting to send them.

Hopefully you all had a wonderful holiday.  Check back soon for more December Daily in the days to come.

December Daily 4-6, 2015

Counting down the days until Christmas. Actually I'm counting how many days I have left to finish my shopping. I'm starting to get a little worried that I won't get everything done. At least I've been able to stay caught up on my December Daily so far.

Day 4
I did as much shopping as I could in one day. I still have a lot to do though.

Day 5
We were all excited about cutting down our own Christmas tree for the first time. Khloë was very selective and made sure she picked just the right one.

Day 6
Scooter's Birthday! He loves his birthday present. He's afraid to walk on the slippery wood laminate floor and we usually end up laying down area rugs and towels for him so I decided for his birthday I would get a large rug for our family room so that he would feel more comfortable walking around. It worked. He loves it. Look at that happy boy!

Have a wonderful day and I hope you're as happy as a mastiff with a new rug.

December Daily 2015

Happy December. I'm working on a December Daily again this year. Are any of you joining the fun? I haven't finished my cover page, but I have a calendar printed that will be the main focus. I got the calendar as a free printable from Stitch in Time on their blog.

So far I've kept up with each day. December 1st a family friend stayed with us because he and my husband were leaving at 5:00 in the morning to golf. We went to my favorite restaurant for dinner, Texas Roadhouse.

December 2nd the boys were gone and I had a company come out to the house to give me a quote on expanding our deck. Our backyard is pretty much a blank slate right now with just a big area of grass. The guy that came out had some really good ideas and the prices were in line with the other quotes I've gotten. The biggest problem now will be the weather. I'm not sure how wet it will be in January and we might have to wait a few months longer to get started.

December 3rd I took Coco for a grooming. It was raining before I got home from work (which she loves) so when I got home she was a wet mess. I figured it would be okay because the groomer would be getting her wet for her bath anyway. Once we got there she was so excited she was trying to climb over the gate and the desk to greet "her friends" the groomers. I have never seen a dog that loved to go to the groomers like her. She didn't even look back to say bye as they took her leash. When I went to pick her up two hours later she was climbing into a groomers lap and giving her kisses. She didn't even care that I was standing there waiting for her. She was getting attention and that's what she lives for. She loves everyone and believes that everyone loves her.

Half a day at work today and then I'm off to Starbucks and Christmas shopping. Have a great weekend.

Blessed are the children of scrapbookers, for they shall inherit the scrapbooks.
