December Daily 26-31

Alright folks, lets wrap this up. I'm ready for summer already. Heehee. Yes, I know winter just started and the weather people are telling us it's going to be a long wet winter. I'm just not a winter kind of girl. I need my sunshine.

Okay, enough crying. I have the last of my December Daily pages to share.

Well, that's my December. January has already started off pretty busy for us. Hopefully I can find the time to keep up my scrapbooking and Project Life. At the very least I hope I can get my room cleaned up AGAIN and start doing some of that organizing. Happy New Year!

December Daily 22-25

December 22:
Another quiet night at home. I love the real fireplace, but I really miss the gas fireplace in our old house. I really liked being able to flip a switch to turn it on and get instant warmth. My dear husband 100% prefers the real fire and did not like the gas one.

December 23:
At the last minute our Christmas plans changed drastically. We were supposed to have Christmas Day at my mom's house, but on the 23rd we found out half of the family wouldn't be able to make it. My mom thought it would be too much for us to drive 2 1/2 hours to her house so we offered to have everyone over on Christmas Eve. We hadn't done very much decorating so we had to kick it in high gear to get some lights up outside and some garland on the stairs. A few other decorations and that was it.

December 24:
Hubby had to work so I got up early and started peeling potatoes for the dish I was making. Unfortunately I thought I could put all the peelings down the disposal. Note to self: Do not put a bunch of potato peels down the disposal! Luckily Michael came to the rescue and got everything cleared out.

December 24 continued:
I cut one of the page protectors in half to add a few additional photos. I included a name tag from one of my presents that Christopher gave me as the page turner.

December 25:
On Christmas Day we went to Michael and Robin's house and got to spend a wonderful time with them, the girls and Robin's family. It was so nice and relaxed, well as relaxed as it can be with two little girls on Christmas Day!

December 25 continued:
Some additional pictures of the fun we had on Christmas Day. The top right picture is a little dark, but I love it. I got Khloë an Instax Polaroid type camera and she loved it. She used two packs of film and every picture came out perfect. I think she's going to be the new photographer in the family.

I've decided to continue with my December Daily thru the end of the year so I'll be back in a few days with more pictures.

December Daily 19-21

It's the big day. Khloë actually turned 5 on the 18th, but her party was on Saturday, December 19. Her theme this year was Ariel/under the sea. My sister Michelle did the amazing cake again. I am always excited to see the cake because she does such a good job. And they taste good too!

December 19:

December 20:
Here I go running out of time and still have presents to buy. Unfortunately the one day I have free it's raining. Oh well, lets get this done.

December 21:
The stockings are hung and the decorations are up. We're almost ready for Christmas.

Tomorrow is my birthday so it will probably be a couple of days before I post more of my December Daily. I'll be back soon, another year older.

December Daily 14-18

I'm back with a few more finished pages.

December 14:
We didn't really have anything going on except work, but when we got home we found this beautiful poinsettia on our porch from our neighborhood realtors.

December 15:
Office holiday party always includes yummy food catered in. I think I have a picture of my plate of food every year and I think it always looks the same. Potatoes, bacon, fruit and something sweet.

December 16:
Another day wrapping presents. I still have a lot to do, but I ran out of tags so I'll have to wait until I make some more.

December 17:
I made some more tags and wrapped some more presents. Starlet decided to "help", but all she managed to do is wrinkle the paper and get a plastic bag stuck around her neck. Silly girl, didn't her mom teach her not to play with plastic bags?

December 18:
After work Christopher and I went to the mall to get some more shopping done and to say "hi" to Santa.

I hope everyone had a wonderful, safe New Year. I was able to spend a lot of the day in my craft room and the evening with my family, just the way I like it.
Blessed are the children of scrapbookers, for they shall inherit the scrapbooks.
