Welcome to a day in my life. I can't guarantee that this will be an exciting read for anyone. My life is filled with all the mundane activities of a stay-at-home-mom just trying to raise her three sons to be the best men they can be.

December Daily

This year I decided to participate in the December Daily. For those who aren't scrapbookers, the idea is to document something every day during the month of December. At first I was a little overwhelmed with the idea of creating an album like this but the more I thought about it, the more I felt I needed to create one and document the important things of our Christmas season.

I have pre-made all my pages so that all they're waiting for is the pictures and journaling, and maybe a small amount of embellishments. The key for success for me will be simplicity. I also want to make myself accountable, so I'm going to come here and do a December Daily post each day (or doubling up sometimes on those very busy days that I know I'll have.)

December 1

My Christmas season this year was kicked off with Rick's Christmas party. Every year, Community Living Burlington puts on a big dinner and dance for all the clients and their families. I always enjoy seeing everyone so happy to share that night together. This year Dad was sick, so it was just Mom and I that attended, but Rick didn't seem to mind too much. He was happy just to have us there and to be eating great food. It was a great start to this year's festivities.

December 2nd

It's December 2nd and I'm still not finished putting up all the decorations. Usually I spend November 30th decorating, but this year I'm behind a little. Yesterday I did a lot of the decorating, and today I had planned on doing the trees, but we're having trouble with the lights on the pre-lit tree and so tomorrow we will have to go out and get more lights. Still, the house is starting to look like Christmas time has arrived.


  1. Nice work! Your on track...I'm jealous....LOL

  2. I really like the "pre-planned" layout you picked. It keeps things simple and consistent so you can focus on the story of each day. Lovely!

  3. Wahoo you are on track!! Awesome.
    I have my photos but I have not put them in the book.
    This weekend I hope. Very nice layouts Barb.

  4. I would love to go to Rick's party. Hopefully one year we will close at hand to do so.
