i hope everyone had a very merry christmas! i certainly did! and all the excitement of santa visiting, grandparents visiting, presents and new toys is starting to subside some, but there's still a lot going on around here.
i'm still chugging along on my 25 days of december album - still a couple of days behind with plans to have it completed by the end of the year. below you'll find the next three pages. enjoy!
the layout for december 15th displays some of blake's artwork from school (scanned and reduced in size to fit my album). blake is three. i love this one and it will probably be framed and added to our growing collection of christmas decorations - rudolph in a snow storm! love it! the journaling talks about the boys christmas art work being one of my favorite things about the holiday season.
the entry for december 16th is all about michael's visit to the santa shoppe at his school to buy gifts for the people on his christmas list. he was so excited when he came home that night that he made paul, blake and i open our presents immediately. the journaling tells the story and explains what a great job he did picking out gifts for everyone and how i could tell he put a lot of thought into the choices that he made.
and the entry for december 17th explains that for me it didn't really feel like christmas until i completed a big project i was working on at work. after months of working on it and a looming deadline right before the holiday break, i was putting in lots of extra hours to get this everything wrapped up and december 17th was the day that i finally signed off the report and it was officially complete.
i'll be back soon with the rest of the album i hope!
