December Daily 2015: December 11th & 12th~

Friday Hartly went with Tori and Blake to the Blackstone Christmas Parade.

Since she wasn’t in this parade, the highlight was seeing Santa Claus.

As soon as she spotted the Big Guy she started waving.

She told me her hand got SO tired!

And nothing says Christmastime like 75 degree weather.

I’m guessing it’s not going to be a white Christmas this year.

Tinsel was back at it again.

This time with MY Instax camera. Sigh.

And boy, did he have fun.

He took selfies with Frosty, Mickey Mouse, a Snowman and several random Christmas tree shots.

The look Hartly gave him was simply priceless.

I made a flap to hold all the additional pictures and my journaling tag.

And now I’m off to go order more film.

That elf!

December Daily 2015: December 9th~

Remember the other day when Hartly sent her cards and wish list for Santa Claus by Tinsel, our mischievous Elf On A Shelf?

Well, surprise….he actually delivered them.

Today Tinsel even hand delivered a letter from the Big Guy himself…Santa.

And boy, was Hartly excited.

December-Daily-Dec-9th

Apparently Santa thinks she’s on the Good List. Oh my.

I found this adorable, free printable letter and envelope at Frosted Events, so make sure you grab one for the little ones in your life.

Just a warning though…it will cause their excitement level to go up. Sigh.

Today was a BIG day for a certain little girl.

The Santa Shop opened at school and she went armed with her list and money.

December 8th~

Dec-Daily-Dec-8th-A

I used an old Christmas card and envelope to hold her list, my picture and journaling tag.

Dec-Daily-Dec-8th-B

She spent the entire ride home from school telling me what she bought for everyone but me and ran right up to her room to wrap each gift.

Her excitement and pure joy from buying the simplest of  gifts for  each of us brought me to tears.

And isn’t that what this holiday season is about?

December Daily 2015: December 7th~

Tinsel, our Elf On The Shelf, has been a bit mischievous lately.

He’s hosted a Princess party, climbed the Christmas tree, ridden the train around the tree, pushed my snowmen out from under a glass dome, was found dangling from the kitchen lights and even got into the Christmas candy.

So, we had a little talk.

It was time for him to behave.

He was left last yesterday in my studio under the direct supervision of Daryl Dixon and Rick Grimes from The Walking Dead.

In fact, Daryl was instructed to use force if necessary if the little stinker got any where near my Copic collection.

Today is the perfect day to…party!

Both my Mom and Dad celebrate their birthdays in December, so we usually try to get the whole family together and have a meal somewhere special.

This year it was The Melting Pot. Yum!

December 6th~

Since I wanted to include additional pictures I used a 4×6 page protector left over from a previous year’s December Daily.

I placed my date and title on the front and tucked my journaling tag behind the picture.

December-Daily-Dec-6th

I just had to use the 2 + 5 flash card since one of the birthdays was a rather important milestone. He he.

Now I’m off to fix dinner.

I’m sure the family will be just as excited tonight as they were last night.

It’s leftover night! Ha.

December Daily 2015: December 3rd – 5th~

It’s the weekend which means I can catch up, because the end of our week was crazy busy.

It all began with my Dad’s 70th birthday on Thursday.

Not only did we have a party, but also a parade.

Okay, the parade was actually the Town Of Crewe’s Christmas parade. He he.

December 3rd~

My Mom is the Mayor of Crewe, so she, Dad and Hartly all rode on the Town’s float.

And one little girl had the best time.

I felt it was important to include Tinsel, our Elf On The Shelf, since he was being a bit naughty.

Thankfully nothing was broken. Yet.

I mentioned earlier that Holden has been sick all week.

That lead to a big discussion about whether he should push the button on the North Pole Communicator possible contaminating it with his germs.

Needless to say we let him have his turn.

December 4th~

Until there was opera singing involved then Hartly quickly stepped in.

Speaking of Tinsel Hartly has decided to trust him to take her Christmas card and Wish List to Santa on tonight’s North Pole run.

December 5th~

She carefully placed her envelope next to Tinsel in hopes he’ll remember it.

Good luck with that!

I’m not sure I trust that little guy, but she does.

So now I am caught up.

For now.
