Day 21: Both the boys were feeling a bit off colour so it was a quiet day in front of the tv.Day 22: We made chocolate playdough! It smelled soooo good and the kids had so much fun with it.
Day 23: We gave the kids an early Christmas present...new bikes! They had a ball riding up and down the street on them...although Madi still has no idea how to use the pedals (luckily it has a push-along handle for us to help her along). There is a little booklet on the page holding the photos and journalling being held closed with the little string bow.
Day 24: Christmas Eve! We headed up to my parents' place for the night. Dad always does such a great job with their Christmas lights! We had a nice relaxed day with them, followed by a night in front of the tv watching Christmas carols.
Day 25: Christmas Day!!!! Our day started extremely early when Ayden found that Santa had been. There were lots of presents to open, loads of yummy food, lots of fun swimming in the pool...and it was so lovely to have all the family together for Christmas dinner.
So there you have it! My 2009 December Daily album is all done. (I'm thinking I might still add in a pocket page at the end to hold the gorgeous handmade cards I received from friends....I don't want to lose them!)
I do have a few other projects to share with you too...all challenges from the Scrapz Biggest Loser comp that's running at the moment. I'll try to keep it brief...
This first challenge was to create a layout using things found on your desk. I'd had these photos, embellies and things sitting around for months...so good to say it's done now!
This challenge was to use up scraps and create a patchwork background. I created two pages for this one...Heike gave us a link to this super easy gift box. I think I'll be making more of these! (The link can be found in the forum.)Another challenge was to scraplift yourself....I've used this design quite a few times! LOLThe school holidays are flying by so quickly aren't they? We've had a pretty quiet time but enjoyed every minute of it so far. We had a visit yesterday from Paul's brother John, his wife Leigh and their gorgeous little man Noah. The kids were so excited to see their cousin! We hadn't seen them in a while and he's grown so much....it was great to catch up with them. :)
I guess I should leave it there...this post is long enough!!! Thanks so much for dropping by!
