December Daily - Day 3 and 4


Does documenting it somehow make it better?  Cause I swear that I am enjoying this December far more than any other I can think of for a while.  It has just seemed magical so far.

I am just wondering if the process of looking for the joy really does end up creating the joy somehow.  I guess I'll have to try it again next year and see if the same thing happens.




Below is my favorite page so far!  Such a fun story this image was.  I stuck my hat on little Olivia's head, and she, being a shy girl, buried her head in her mama's shoulder.  But I was quick and ran around the other side and when she looked up, I snatched this shot!  LOVE!



While it didn't make it all the way to the desert floor, the mountain tops surrounding our little valley are all beautifully covered in snow. I had to do a telephoto shot to capture it, but you get the idea.  It'll all be gone in a day or so, at least to our view down here.





With the cold temps, George kitty likes to cuddle in his dad's discarded coat (left on the couch!  egads!!)  Do you like that cute frame?  Silhouette baby!  This is one of my favorite die cut shapes.



And then we got FOG!  This almost never happens, especially this early in the winter (well, winter isn't even here yet technically!).  Love how things look in the fog.



It's coming together.  Keep it simple.  Keep it simple. Keep it simple.  (If I keep telling myself that do you think it'll stick?)

One thing I think I need to do is start making myself a document with words that I can cut out.  I love the little sticker words but they rarely seem to have the ones that I want.  Need to come up with a solution for that.

Have a wonderful Tuesday!

  9. Awesome pages! I think the documenting does make it better because you will remember the little things that are easier to forget.

  22. I totally understand what you mean about documenting it makes it more fun ... I'm not sure if it is the DD or the advent calendar I am doing with my kiddos, but I feel like we are capturing the season. Love it!
