Still plugging away at my December Daily album. Glad to be sticking with it–it’s always worth it in the end! Here is a look at Days 3 and 4. Day 3 profiles our new advent calendar this year. The journaling reads: This was the year of the advent calendar. Found this adorable garland of mittens on Grand Avenue last month, and Holly LOVES to find out each morning what new ornament awaits her!
Day 4 is all about Holly’s time with “Cake.” (That’s her term of endearment for my mom–all because they played patty-cake on the computer when Holly was young!) While I was in and out of the hospital in the days surrounding Marie’s birth my mom was holding down the fort here at home. I do believe that Holly and my mom had a great time having the house to themselves! They played a slew of games (real and imaginary) together, but none as much fun as the make-up party that took place every morning. The journaling reads: Between newborn duties and multiple hospital stays for me these past few days, Holly and “Cake” have had the chance to spend a lot of time together. Their favorite activity? Make-up parties in the morning!
