It's Beginning to Look alot Like Christmas................

my absolutely most favourite time of the year. Yesterday we turned our house into the "Christmas Cave" ~ a little later than usual due to my being crook. Up went the tree and out came the santas. Riley was so excited, he is as crazy about Christmas as I am and just loves all the decorations. This year he took charge of the placement and pretty much remembered where things went. To top off a very Christmassy day we watched The Polar Express which epitomises the true spirit of Christmas, something I want Riley to hold onto for as long as possible. A few pictures of our decorations:

And in keeping with the Christmas spirit I have joined in with Shimelle's Journal Your Christmas again this year.

This is a fabulous way to document Christmas. I didn't finish last year, but have all the photos and journaling for the days I missed, so am planning on working on these projects concurrently. Each day between Dec 1st and Jan 6th (the 12th day of Christmas) Shimelle provides a prompt for the day to generate thoughts and photos of the season. This year I am working on a smaller format album (maximum page size 6"x6")with a variety of different page materials in a range of sizes. The album that I am using as the base for my Journal is a Karen Day Designs MiniMy Mixed Textile Media album produced by Scrapware and available from Scrapboxx.
