December Daily 2014 – Day Twenty

December Daily 2014 – Day Sixteen

Day Sixteen is about the day we spent at the zoo on Sunday. Even though we did it on Sunday, I wanted to make sure to tell the story. I look at this as the story of our December so I am not super-particular about what’s preserved on what day.

David lost his tooth right when we were at the park, so I decided to save that, too!

December Daily 2014 – Day Fifteen

Today’s page had a drawing of Santa’s present bag so I decided to write about our presents. I had just spent a bunch of time wrapping them all so I thought it was a good fit. It’s one of those story-heavy entries. A reminder of what I like to shop for, how this year’s holiday shopping went, etc. I also attached a snippet of the wrapping paper I used for each of us for this year.:

it’s getting awfully close to Christmas.

December Daily 2014 – Day Fourteen

Day fourteen was all about the Google Geo Christmas Party. This year’s party was at the Computer History Museum and they had some cartoonists, some fun graffiti photo thingie, ice skating and a photobooth so I wanted to capture all of that. They also had a robot on the dance floor that both Jake and I posed with.

December Daily 2014 – Day Thirteen

Day thirteen has two stories, on the left it’s about how Nathaniel’s teacher tweets during the week and happened to tweet about Nathaniel and then on the right side, I wrote about the boys doing their algebra books while I worked.

(I just noticed the photo on the left says “remember to” it actually says “remember to laugh” but the sticker fell off. I went and dug out another one to glue on there.)
