Welcome December and welcome Christmas! It is always exciting for me to get to this day, but this year it seems to have taken me a little by surprise. After the preparations made to my album in the months gone, I'm excited to get some photos in and stories told.
We spent some time yesterday getting the home decorations started, but this morning the star went up on the tree, it was Tillly's turn this year. Our Little People nativity set came out too and it was played with by both kids... I have a feeling that it will be a common sight this season!
We had art this morning and I was so excited that Wendy had a lesson prepared where the kids drew reindeer. Perfect for today's page! :) After art we visited grandma. We've been spending quite a lot of time at ma's house lately, keeping her company and helping a little after some surgery. As Sam napped, I set Tilly up with some paper and inkpads to make fingerprint cards for her friends... I stole some for the album... they were too cute! Tilly also helped ma to decorate her tree today.
At bed time, the kids were given a new Christmas book each and they enjoyed reading them with daddy. It feels good to be started on this project again.
Here's my day 1!
