Have I mentioned how I haven’t done much Christmas shopping yet? Yikes!

So my hubby and I decided to leave the kids with their grandparents and head off for a marathon shopping trip.

Since we were preparing for the Big Guy’s arrival I thought a special little date card was in order~

My actual picture is from the new Christmas tree at Short Pump Town Center that you can even walk through.

It is absolutely beautiful.

In case you were wondering we had a very romantic dinner in the aisles of Costco sharing a slice of pizza.

Saturday was the annual Andrews’ Family Christmas Lunch.

December 13th~

December Daily Dec 13

Leave it to Santa to find and bring Hartly a Jake and The Neverland Pirates costume.

We had searched every inch of Disney World and could not find one.

I guess that Santa has connections!! He he.

The best part was actually seeing Santa outside in the parking lot as we left the restaurant.

He was busy helping someone start their car.

Is there nothing that guy can’t do?

It was Party Day at Nursery School.

Which meant all the little boys and girls had to dress up.

Do I even need to mention that I had one very excited little girl?

She played games, had delicious treats and exchanged gifts.

I even heard she got the chance to talk to the big guy himself….Santa!!

Now that she’s officially started her Christmas Break, she’s even MORE excited.

Oh boy!

How many days until Christmas?

Every year our little family picks out new ornaments for the tree.

So, I thought I would use today to highlight those new additions to our tree.

December 10th~

Can you tell what our family has been into this year?

All things Disney!!

I don’t know about you, but I love for my pictures to have the little white border around them.

And time after time when I’m printing specific sized photos I forget to allow for it.

However, this time I remembered. Yippee!

In case you’re like me…to get my pictures to fit the 2″ pockets and have a white border I printed them at 1.75″.

In between my pages I added a Do A Good Deed Every Day tag from Heidi Swapp~

Dec Daily 11 Tag

Go here to get her free printable.

I think I have finally found my groove with working on this year’s December Daily.

It helps that a certain little girl is helping me and really pushing me to work on it each day.

It’s like I have my very own December Daily elf.

If only she wouldn’t run of with my tape runner.

Every Tuesday is Show & Tell Day at Nursery School.

This Tuesday the letter was J.

And what’s the perfect J item to take?

Jingle Bells!!!

You should have seen Hartly trying to sneak into school while she jingled with each step.

Finally she gave up trying to be covert and just merrily skipped into school sounding like all of Santa’s reindeer.

If you look closely you will see my journal card with this story tucked under all the layers.

It’s even written in my very own handwriting, since a fellow crafter has challenged us to use our handwriting more.

That’s for you Francine!!

A word of caution about giving a four year old a container of jingle bells….

They just might end up all over the car jingling with each turn you make. Sigh.

Guess what?

At this very moment I am completely and 100 percent up to date on this year’s album. Yippee!!

Want to place a bet on how long that will last? He he.

The other night while at Wal-Mart we spotted a North Pole Communicator and just had to get it.

The best part was the conversation Hartly and I had the next morning about “her” plan on who got to talk to the North Pole and when.

Seems she was quite certain her brother and sister did not need to be around, so we didn’t need to wait on them.

That girl!

Saturday we headed out to do a little shopping.

Of course, you have to wear a Santa hat if you’re going to be doing any type of shopping in December.

Right?

A Girls’ Crafting Day.

Need I say more?

I didn’t think so!!

So…how’s your December Daily coming along?

Mine still doesn’t have a decorated cover, but that’s okay.

For now.

This has been one busy week!

We celebrated my Dad’s 69th birthday with a big family dinner out. Yum!

And of course if Hartly is around her aunt, she has to take a selfie with her.

It’s their thing now.

Then we had Crewe’s Christmas Parade.

December 4th~

DDEC-4

Since it decided to rain on our parade, we watched from inside our warm and cozy offices.

And I think the cousins had a bit more fun running around, singing and dancing with each other.

December Daily 2014: December 1st & 2nd~

I’ve started. Yippee!!

Now it really feels like the holiday season.

That and of course the trail of pine tags, glitter and piles of broken ornament pieces lying around the house.

If you have small children around your tree you know exactly what I mean and probably have a matching “Need to Glue” pile.

I started with a wonderful December calendar provided by Marie from Stitch In Time~

D Calendar

I used several of the December Story stamps from October Afternoon to highlight just some of our plans for this month.

Guess what else signals the start of the holidays for us?

December 1st~

DD Calendar

Going to see the trains at Bevell’s.

Travis took Hartly to see them on Saturday; however, she sweet talked her grandparents into taking her again after school.

Wonder just how many times we will see them this year?

I found an adorable Santa with a train printable on Pinterest to use as my background.

December 2nd~

DD Dec 1

Hartly’s homework from Nursery School was to find an object that reminds her of Christmas for a Christmas Show & Tell.

She picked one of her favorite and unbroken ornaments….Buzz Lightyear.

She even dressed for the occasion by wearing her new reindeer with ornaments shirt. That girl!

I haven’t worked on my cover yet, but boy does it feel good to get started.

Let me know how you’re doing with yours!!

I’d love to see it!!
