Like I said yesterday, our break from all things crafty is finally over! The first thing I attacked was my December Daily album, which documented our December days leading up to Christmas.
You can see the beginning of the book here:
Day 16 & Day 17
focused on Jake’s little brother Corbin’s band concert and Eli dancing.
Journaling Day 16: We went to Corbin’s Christmas music concert – it was great! Eliza can’t wait to be big enough to play. She’ll be a Mozart!
Journaling Day 17: Eli can’t stop dancing since we watched the Nutcracker. I bought the record for her She loves it!
focused on the awesome Plaza Anderson Christmas/wedding party.
Journaling Day 18: Anderson Christmas Party/ Paul & Sara’s Wedding Party @ Danny & Katie’s
opens up to reveal photos of us making a ginger bread house.
Journaling Day 19: Poppy bought us a gingerbread house kit because Jake was talking about how much he wanted to make one this year. We had a LOT of fun putting it together, but all in all it was an EPIC FAIL. The house collapsed three times until it was broken beyond repair. So, we thought we’d taste it. BIG MISTAKE. Yuk!
Day 20 & 21
focused on Jake’s older brother Nick’s visit from Oregon and our Christmas decorations.
Journaling Day 23: We love making Christmas cookies! We always make to many. We also celebrated Christmas with Papa Clay and Carol today!
Day 24 & 25
focused on our holiday happenings.
Journaling Day 24: Christmas Eve was less hectic than normal because we were waiting for Jonas to come and didn’t wat to stray too far from home. The Anderson’s came and we opened presents. After that we went to Grandpa Ray’s.
Journaling Day 25: We actually had to wake Eliza up in the morning! But then we realized that we were out of batteries in our camera! There’s no stopping the rout to presents though, so we don’t have any pictures of Christmas! We had a great time hanging out at home. Poppy came to see us and Mimi and Papa brought us dinner. It was nice to have a laid back holiday; Eli loved having time to ding into her gifts. The only disappointment was that Jonas didn’t come. His due date was today.
