|Days 14 & 15 - Target for some decorations. A coffee date|
& the cutest mini snowman candle & candies from my
|The ink smeared on this tag. It basically says|
I went to Target to get some decorations but they didn't have
the candle lights I wanted. The metal Smith & Hawkens
tag was from a white ceramic pine cone.
|Days 15-16. This is the back side of Day 15 & consists of|
the cute gift bag those goodies from my hair stylist came in. I love
that she & her mom made the penguin tag.
So creative & cute. And our decorated tree & mantle.
|More decorations. This was one of the times I wished that I had|
a larger space to work with so I didn't have so many extra pages.
|The lights are staying in my office year round. |
Sorry for the bad light quality.
|Days 17 & 18 - our first light dusting of snow & a trip to the|
North Market with my parents.
|Day 19 - a beautiful handmade scarf from my friend|
Abby (check out her shop). A handmade card from Kathy &
another card from Monique (all 3 are fellow bloggers I met this
year - lucky me)
|Day 20 is a movie theater gift card we received|
from M's Dad & step mom.
|We saw Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol & The Adventures|
of Tin Tin in 3D. Both were very good in different ways.
|Days 21 & 22 - It was 55 degrees at 7:30 am. 7:30. A.M.|
Definitely not Christmasy weather. Picture of our candle lights
on the night of the winter solstice.
|Day 23 - wrapping presents & packing|
them up to take to my parents.
|This is the back side of Day 22 & is just some info I printed about|
the meaning & origin of the solstice.
|Days 24 & 25. Christmas traditions with my parents & their tree.|
|From my Dad's side of the family- we always|
have New England Clam Chowder on Christmas
Eve & strawberry shortcake on Christmas morning.
|More of my parents' decorations & the cutest picture of my|
parents opening one of their gifts from us.
|I am so glad I took this & have it documented. |
It makes me smile.
|Day 26 & the final pages - More Christmas lights |
|This holds a few odds & ends I didn't find a place for in |
the book but wanted to keep.
|And this envelope holds the calendar I used to take notes & |
plan my page layouts
|Pretty thick huh?|
This is the side by side comparison so you can see the
before & after.
