We always spend Christmas at my parent's house. We are having a great time despite the fact that we've already had to call an emergency plumber and had one trip to the emergency room. And last night my 6' 4" cousin dropped my son on his head and he now has carpet burns imbedded in his forehead. But we've never had a Christmas go smoothly which makes it more fun somehow. And we always have lots of laughter. I have my friends coming over to visit today and tomorrow the girls are taking a trip to the bridal salon to get my daughter fitted for a junior bridesmaids dress for a wedding this summer, and the boys are going to a movie. Lots going on. Merry Christmas!
Had a productive weekend. Went to the Reindeer Festival, the Botanical Gardens, and did a little Christmas shopping. Lots of stuff to add to my December Daily. Unfortunately both kids came down with a cold so we had to skip cookie decorating at a friend's today.
Reports there might be snow tonight...keeping our fingers crossed.
Day 3 from my December Daily was about our trip to the Nutcracker.
I made the ballet dancers with graphics I downloaded from The Graphics Fairy , and just added crepe paper and a little glitter...
I then just layered different embellishments and a Prima flower for the rest of the page.
the lace envelope contains pictures from our day, and the pink ribbon is from a signed pair of ballet slippers my daughter brought home as a souvenir. This ballerina image was also downloaded from The Graphics Fairy.
