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.

So….how’s your December Daily coming along?

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.

December Daily Dec 21 & 22

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 19th & 20th~

I think I’ve mentioned before how Hartly has become my little December Daily Elf.

She’s been cheering me on and keeping me on task.

Even I was surprised when I stepped away from my desk for just a moment and when I returned I found all of her Princes, Princesses and Dwarves checking out my December Daily.

But not even that can top the dive and slide underneath the Christmas Tree she performed this very morning.

Amazingly no packages or ornaments were harmed during this stunt.

And I caught it on camera.

This child.

With five days left to go I’m not so sure she’s going to stay on that Nice List.

Uh-oh.

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.

Tracking Santa~

December Daily 18 b

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.

Do you want to build a snowman?

Tinsel, our Elf On The Shelf, sure did.

He joined Mickey, Minnie and Pluto in making a snowmouse. He he.

Since I had a busy day with work and wrapping presents I kept today rather simple by printing a full-page sized picture.

I added a few embellishments and a vintage Frosty The Snowman image found on Pinterest with my date.

My Frosty insert~

December Daily 17 b

Quick and easy.

Now I’m off to go round-up all the extra presents of old toys my little helper wrapped.

I think it’s part of her master plan to sneak a peek at the real presents.

It’s a good thing Tinsel is keeping an eye on her too.

This girl is tricky.

It’s official.

The lists have been finalized and mailed.

No more additions, changes or substitutions allowed.

Of course I’m talking about the lists for Santa.

This weekend Hartly received a letter from Santa.

The excitement level in the house which was already high skyrocketed.

Apparently Santa has placed her on the Nice List.

He also asked for her to write him back, so they all had to pen a letter to the Big Guy.

December 16th~

December Daily Dec 16

They were so cute all lined up at the counter busily writing.

I added a vintage Christmas List image I found on Pinterest in between my pages.

This was a BIG day!

I now have TWO teenage drivers in the house. Yikes!

Or Yippee!

December 15th~

December Daily Dec 15

I haven’t decided yet, because that’s a lot of driving and time spent in a car….90 hours of instruction between the two of them. Sigh.

I used a vintage printable found on Pinterest of Santa driving his reindeer that I thought would be cute to go along with the picture of Holden after he passed his test.

Just so you know the kind lady at the DMV provided Hartly with her own Virginia Driver’s Manual.

And she’s already studying the road signs. Oh my.
