December Daily {Day 19}

Moving right along.....

December Daily {Day 18}

December Daily {Day 16 & 17}

While it is still December I wanted to show a couple more pages of my December Daily.  With everything that has been going on it has been hard to keep up.  But the past few days I have spent a little time catching up.  Now I am out of photos to add and need to do a big printing.

ETA:  Day 17 second half

December Daily {Days 14&15}

My parents came in for the weekend and we were busy visiting Santa and enjoying the beautiful weather at Silver Dollar City.

December Daily {Day 13}

I am falling behind on this album, but I at least do the journal page at the end of the night.  Santa emailed Ashley a video this day.  I think she has watched it at least 10 times since.  According to Santa she is going to receive a gift, but there were lots of red lights going off on the elf's machine.  She is supposed to be working on listening to her's not going so well.

December Daily {Day 12}

The weekend really kills my production on this album.  I completed day 12 last week but now I need to catch up on 13-16 and now 17.  I do love the end result so I am going to keep pushing.  DID YOU KNOW CHRISTMAS IS NEXT WEEK.... ugh I have so much to do!

Just a normal day around these parts!

December Daily {Day 10}

Ahhh a full page layout for Day 10!  The cold weather and gingerbread houses filled our day!

December Daily {Day 9}

This is all I have for Sunday.  I am not the most happy with any pictures from this day so i think I am going to add a decking the halls layout.  BUT I need to take pictures of my house first.  I am kinda keeping it open for now.  I will add my second page when I complete it!  ETA the second page!

December Daily {Day 8}

Ashley marched in the Springfield Christmas Parade with her Girl Scout Troop for the 2nd time.  This year she actually walked most of it, she did ride on the float towards the end.  Last year she rode in a stroller the whole way.  I think they had a blast and the weather held out, no rain and 50 degrees!  Thanks to David for the drop off and pick up.  I don't think I would do it if I had to park, walk to the parade start, parade and then walk back to car.

December Daily {Day 7}

Day 7 is complete....almost caught up!

December Daily {Day 6}

I was in St. Louis for work and I Skyped the girls from my parents house.  Since I didn't have little kids with me I  enjoyed a trip to Archiver's where I actually had time to look at everything!

December Daily {Day 5}

Trinity turned's crazy that she has been with us that long, she was our first baby.

December Daily {Day 4)

I was out of town late last week for work and had to play major catch up on my December Daily album.  I am in pretty good shape, just a few things to do to catch up.  On day four "Silly David" showed up...he has been up to no good this year.  Ashley loves to find him in the morning, he has pissed her off twice already this year, she claims he is getting coal for Christmas.  Apparently Ashley doesn't like pink milk or vampire teeth drawn onto her picture.

December Daily {Day 3}

Just a typical Monday...but in December.  I love that this project is like a mini Project Life but covers all the Christmas traditions and celebrations.

December Daily {Day 2}

Day two complete!

December Daily {Day 1}

This year I am using a 6"x8" Simple Stories Red Sn@p Binder. I will be using one full 6x8 page protector and one 3x4/4x6 divided page protector per day.  In addition to my on-hand supplies I will be using Studio Calico's December Daily kit.  I will also be using Ali Edwards overlays for my journal block each day.  I tried to make it as easy as possible to complete....and so far it this process seems to be working.

Christmas Cards 2011

A quick layout of all the photos from Christmas cards we received last year.  The layout came from a super savers class at Scrapbook Generation that I attended this past Saturday.  SG made this come together real easy!

I am again doing a December Daily as inspired by Ali Edwards this year.  I have completed my first two days minus a few tweeks.  I will start sharing my layouts soon.  I am excited about this project!

  • Loves her big sister to pieces and copies what ever Ashley is doing (you can see her look at Ashley and then repeat what she just did)
  • Bugs her big sister to pieces

  • Learning her colors (most things are blue)
  • Still naps two hours in the afternoon
  • Sleeping in her crib with the crib door open and the bedroom door closed
  • Says please and thank you
  • Seems to be left handed
  • Loves milk and asks for it all the time
  • Is demanding if you don't answer her right away (MOM!)
  • Loves chocolate, candy, anything sweet
  • Is a so so eater, loves fruit the most
  • Has an awesome vocabulary
  • Running, jumping, kicking, climbing, dancing
  • Has the best belly laugh

Kansas Speedway

Dave's dad was gifted a package to the NASCAR Kansas race last year.  The package came from a charity auction that Jamie McMurray donated to benefit the Joplin Tornado survivors.  Jamie McMurray is from Joplin, MO.  The package included six tickets all with hot passes.  The hot pass basically gave you access to everything including the pit areas.  They also got to meet Jamie and all took turns sitting in his pit box during the race with the team owner and pit crew manager.  Dave was in heaven.   I used my Studio Calico November kit Sock Hop.  Below are two more layouts I also did about the day.

New Years 2012

A fun layout of all my crazy friends ringing in the New Year.  Can you tell we had lots of free beer to drink (thanks Jessie and Greg)?  I used my November Studio Calico Sock Hop kit.  P.S.  Ann was pregnant at this celebration AND SHE HID IT FROM ALL OF US.  I still claim if I was not so drunk I would have figured it out, all the signs were there!  Damn you beer :) and the hangover I had all day Sunday.

Another quick layout with my November Studio Calico kit Sock Hop with a scraplift of this great layout by Maggie Holmes.  These two little girls are so so close in age and when they get together there is lots of mine and pushing and shoving going on.  But Allison loves Hannah to death and is constantly asking about her and wants to see pictures on my phone.  Monkey see monkey do would have been a great title for this layout too.

We are Family!

Another layout of Jessie's wedding!  I used this sketch by Basic Grey for inspiration and my Studio Calico November kit Sock Hop.  New Years will never be the same after this awesome wedding... this group spends New Years together (for as long as I can remember) in different cities and this one was one of the best yet.  Now this year....WE NEED PLANS!

Halloween 2011

A quick layout of my kiddos last Halloween.  My stack of 2011 pictures is dwindling!!!  Which is good because I plan on doing a December Daily again this year so probably no layouts in December and I would like to finish out my year behind scrapbooking before the new year!
