Since I have quite a few pages done, I thought I would speed things up a bit and display three pages today. (This, too, may help speed me up in the finishing of this album. Nothing like a little pressure you know?!)
Day 6 is a customary page for me–scenes from around the house. I like capturing how we decorated, and seeing how it evolves year after year. Was SO wonderful to see my Santa quilt on our bed! If you have ever made a quilt (specifically a KING sized quilt) you know what an accomplishment that is to get it done, quilted, and in its rightful place. Journaling for Day 6 reads: Here is a collection of photos from around the house this year. We added some new pillows to our collection, as well as more frames and ornaments. But my favorite? Finally putting my Santa quilt on the bed!! (After being “under construction” for the past two years, it’s definitely worth the wait!)
Day Seven is very simple, and very indicative of our December this year. Lots of lots of cuddling and nights in. The journaling on this page: Daddy with His Girls, December 2011.
Day eight was spent running around in preparation for Justin’s birthday the following day. We had gifts and cakes to buy! (Nothing homemade this year, unfortunately.) Like I have said time and time again these past few weeks–I plead newborn!) Day eight journaling reads: The day before Justin’s birthday was a day of shopping for us girls. Mom, Holly, Marie and I went to the Mall of America to buy a gift and then topped it off with lunch at Cafe Latte. Fun was had by all!
