December Daily 2014: December 26th & The Finishing Touches~

Our final day of celebrating Christmas this year fell on the day after Christmas with us spending the morning with hubby’s family.

I love how all of the cousins are looking at the camera with the exception of the littlest.

That girl!

Earlier in the week I had found this little iron on gem from Sara at Confetti Sunshine and knew it had to be included in my album.

My bag of coal~

Not to mention I made several to give away. He he.

I simply used supplies I already had at home including left over Studio Calico fabric bags and Avery Dark Fabric Iron On paper.

I think they’d look better using the regular Iron On paper, but they’re still cute.

With our Christmas celebrations over and my mini album turning out to be not so mini I thought it was the perfect time to end this year’s album.

Especially with my desk looking like this~

December Daily Cover Mess

For my cover I used a Christmas image I believe was originally from a Jessica Sprague email from last year.

I added a bow from one of our Christmas packages and a few sparkly chipboard hearts.

And with that I have packed up all the Christmas scrapbooking supplies for now and can actually see the top of my desk again.

What kind of mess should I make now? He he.

December Daily 2014: December 25th~

Christmas morning…

There’s nothing quite like it is there?

Especially with young children around.

The excitement level at my parent’s house on Christmas Day was barely contained.

And I loved every minute of it!

So I decided to use a picture of all the cousins together making funny faces for this day.

December Daily Dec 25 Right

Since Santa seemed to think all of these children were on the Nice List and visited them, I included an image from Pinterest as well.

I can hardly believe how quickly December has gone by.

And I do believe someone in this house has already started the countdown to next Christmas.

Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.

Especially at our house, because we were at the movies. He he.

With Christmas Day falling on Thursday this year it meant I had to work on Christmas Eve.

Which meant our normal Christmas Eve plans with Travis’s family got bumped.

Which also meant we had a free night.

So, we headed to the movies.

I started with another printable from Pinterest, because it was just too cute not to use.

I had to include a selfie of Holden and me in our extremely stylish 3D glasses.

And I slipped our ticket stubs in as well.

In case you were wondering the Hobbit was fantastic.

Luckily Holden received the first two movies as a gift, so we watched those Christmas Day and the day after.

Now I’m anxious to run out and buy the Fellowship of The Rings trilogy to watch too. Hmmm…

December Daily 2014: December 23rd~

Ever have a great idea pop into your head and you get really excited about it?

That’s what happened when I saw this on Pinterest.

December 24 Left

I thought recreating the I saw Mommy kissing Santa Claus scene would be a perfect way to get me and the hubby into our December Daily album.

Because really…that thing is full of Hartly.

And a little bit of the Big Kids.

Then came the process of bringing my idea to life.

Oh boy!

Ashlyn and Holden balked.

Both agreed to take the picture. Or pictures I should say.

Hartly wanted to be an elf.

And we couldn’t find the Santa hat anywhere.

Sigh.

The only other one excited was my hubby.

All he wanted was the kisses. He he.

Ten pictures later this is the best I could get~

December 24 Right

But, I also got a lot of laughs and a funny story to tell as well.

It’s almost time.

Time for Christmas-palooza!! Yippee!!

It’s a good thing I finished all my wrapping today, since we start exchanging gifts on Christmas Eve Eve.

And while I was busy wrapping, someone decided they wanted to be a present.

I’ll take this present over a store-bought one any day.

I used the famous Charlie Brown Christmas speech by Linus printable from http://www.apairofpears.com for my page base.

Or you can find it on Pinterest here.

I love how the colors ended up being perfect for my picture of Hartly in a bag.

Don’t you just love it when that happens purely by accident?

I do.

December Daily 2014: December 21st~

So you know how you politely ask your teenage children to do one little teeny, tiny thing for you…

and guess what happens?

They forget.

Sigh.

Travis and I were pretty much house bound this weekend with the littlest who has a horrible case of the sniffles.

Of course, we’ve taken turns getting the Big Kids where they need to be.

Since caroling has been on the calendar for a few weeks I thought for sure the Big Kids could take a picture of two for me to include as today’s December Daily page.

That would be so much better than the pile of used tissues that I’ve been surrounded by.

But, they didn’t.

So, I made go outside our house and pose.

I also made them sing for me which was hysterical since neither one likes to sing. Ha!

I bet they remember next time I ask for pictures. He he.

December Daily 2014: December 18th~

Remember those Christmas packages I mentioned yesterday?

Today they were being guarded by Tinsel, our Elf On The Shelf.

He caught on quickly didn’t he? He he.

It’s hard to peek when you could possibly bump into the little, magical elf who will tell on you to Santa.

December 18th~

December Daily 18 a

Since Tinsel travels back and forth each evening, we’ve been discussing the North Pole a lot in our house.

In fact, Travis got an app on his phone that let’s Hartly track Santa at any given time.

I thought it would be cute to include a map of the North Pole with her Santa sightings on it.

I have a journaling tag clipped to the top with my handwritten notes on it.

That’s for you Francine!

And Santa….Hartly’s got her eyes on you! He he.
