December Daily 2013 – Day Eighteen

Today is just about our weekly family photo and a few thoughts. Light wasn’t accommodating when i took these shots.

in the journaling pocket, I put a bunch of sequins just for fun. For now I put some tape on top but once I do the other side, I will stitch the top of this pocket.

there we go. See you tomorrow.

December Daily 2013 – Day Seventeen

Today is about the Google holiday party. A photo of us before we left.

there we go. See you tomorrow.

December Daily 2013 – Day Thirteen

Today is about visiting Nathaniel’s classroom. Some pieces he made and some of playing with Daddy. To the right I added a photo of him signing his name, too.

it’s shimmery.

and the back is the one photo I loved so much. I cut it apart and put it in there as if it were one page:

there we go.

December Daily 2013 – Day Twelve

Today I wrote a little about how I am feeling this holiday season and how despite being low, I love the lights and decorations so much.

then I included the kids’ letters to Santa. Here’s Nathaniel:

and David:

there we go. That’s day twelve. See you tomorrow.

December Daily 2013 - Day Eleven

Today is about David’s swimming class. He passes a big milestone and got his backstroke ribbon. It never ceases to amaze me how many milestones happen during December. Then I think, there are milestones each month, we just don’t pay as close attention. Which, of course, made me think that I certainly should pay much closer attention from now on.

more shimmering.

there we go. That’s day eleven. See you tomorrow.

December Daily 2013 – Day Ten

Today is about David’s first ever basketball game. I had to blur the other boys’ faces just to be sure. I also have a little photo of Nathaniel with all the other siblings.

some days are simple.

there we go. That’s day ten. See you tomorrow.

December Daily 2013 – Day Nine

Today is about another yearly tradition: Breakfast with Santa.

I love the gold on this page.

photo with the giant chipmunk:

and more shimmering:

and then some photos of eating pancakes and making crafts:

there we go. That’s day nine. See you tomorrow.

December Daily 2013 – Day Seven

Today is a page with Nathaniel writing the letters of the alphabet. I had one of these last year, too. I love seeing how different they are each year.

The next page is about my ring. This year’s ring says: kind • present • listen

there we go. That’s day seven.

December Daily 2013 – Day Six

Today is all about Vasona Park. This is a yearly tradition for us. And My favorite light is this peace one.

They hand out 3-d glasses each year and this year’s were candy cane and stars. I love keeping these, too.

there we go. That’s day six.
