December Daily 2014 | Days 10-12

Welcome to Days 10-12 of December Daily!

I know I said that I'd be caught up over the past weekend, but then Nique got sick and didn't want to sleep at night, never mind everything else as well. Oh well. 

Day 10:
The journalling is pretty self-explanatory. It was nice to be able to get out of the house for a couple hours with the girls and let them play with other kids around their age. Violet was the oldest one and she did great playing with the two 2-year-olds that were there. Some days that girls amazes me with how responsible she can be at such a young age. 

Day 11:
For today, I actually didn't have a Christmas-related story or anything of the like. I had only taken these 2 photos, so when it came time to put the layout together, I was a bit stumped. And then it hit me. Why not make a layout of one major thing the girls did today? And it worked and I had the photos to go along with it.

Day 12:
The journalling is pretty self explanatory. Violet loved watching the Silhouette cut everything out and helped me put them up on the windows afterwards.

I will try to be caught up in the next couple days, but I'm not making any promises on that. Tonnes of stuff to do around the house + kids + holiday prep = craziness.

December Daily 2014 | Days 7-9

Welcome to Days 7-9 of December Daily!

Took a tiny break from posting there for a couple days, but I'm back with an update! Actually, I just fell behind in making my layouts until I had enough time during nap-time today to catch up on them. I'm posting Days 7-9 today, and I'll post a couple more tomorrow and then hopefully be back on track for next week.

Day 7:
Today's layout features a long and good story of today. It turned into an impromptu Family Date, complete with swimming and going to Famous Dave's for supper. Violet absolutely loved swimming and Dominique was pretty good with it to. We took them into the shallow end of the lap pool (where we could stand but Violet couldn't), and Keith started teaching Violet a bit of swimming. Nique was just content to be in my arms looking around at all the water and talking away. Both girls had a blast and after we were done, Keith decided to take us out to Famous Dave's for supper. And it was good! We all shared one of the smaller Feasts and still had food to take home. Bonus part was both girls behaving really well in the restaurant. Another bonus part was that both girls slept on the way there and back!

Day 8:
Today's story is self-explanatory in the journalling. I wasn't too happy with quite a few of the photos, mainly due to poor lighting, 2 kids that kept on moving (or posing) all the time and that orange/brown wall that threw a bad glare. Luckily I was able to clean it up a bit. 

Day 9:
Again, more self-explanatory in the journalling. And believe me, we all stuffed ourselves full of food and there was still lots left over!

Come back tomorrow for a couple more days of catch-up!

December Daily 2014 | Day 6

Welcome to Day 6 of December Daily!

Today was a day of just lounging around the house, geeking out and watching movies. And it was a good day. I didn't take any photos, as I was planning on making today just a journal day. And it worked out perfectly!

I did the journalling in the Project Life App on my phone so that I could use the Christmas-themed kit and then imported it into my program on the computer, added a background paper and called it done!

December Daily 2014 | Day 5

Welcome to Day 5 of December Daily!

There wasn't much going on today, so I decided to document the sister love between the two girls. How can you not?
Just a 7.5x4 inch photo pared with journalling and a digital brush from Ali Edwards Heart Happy. A really simple page overall, but still tells the story behind it.

December Daily 2014 | Day 4

Welcome to Day 4 of December Daily!

I'm a couple days behind in posting, just have patience. I do have the layouts done, just haven't had time to post lately. Dominique has been teething lately, which has been sapping my energy day and night. Add to that a 3-year-old who is being a bit whiny and an attention hog, and I have no time to myself until they're in bed at night. I will get caught up with posting though.

Anyway, enough about me, onto the layout for Day 4!
As you can tell from the journalling, today was visiting my Grandparents so that Violet could get her nails painted by Meme. Apparently I'm not good enough anymore. And you know what? I'm fine with that. These are my only grandparents remaining and the only Great-Grandparents who ask for us to come down so that they can see the great-grandkids. And I really do love that.
