December Daily 2012 :: Final Album

I noticed last week that Adoramapix was having a Valentine's Day sale on their 8x8 photo books. I kept thinking it would be nice to finish my December Daily book and send it off to print. Then Sean got sick with a nasty virus. Then it turned into pneumonia. My days slipped away.

Today, Valentine's Day, I started to work on it again, and then became determined the finish it before midnight. Please tell me I'm not the only one to do things like this?

I finish it and upload it to Adoramapix. Place it in my cart. Enter the coupon code.

Not valid.


So I check back on their Facebook page and find out it's only for 14 page books.


So, here it is in all its digital glory for your viewing pleasure. Meanwhile, it will be sitting in my cart until they go on sale. For real.

A Year in Our Life :: 2009 Family Album

OK, I'm a sucker for a deal. Shutterfly sent every customer a $20 off code, and I jumped at the chance to create another photo book. I loved the "A Year in Our Life 2012" book that I decided it was worth it to go back and create albums for previous years starting with 2009. Enjoy!

I love looking back at photos of Sean. Time flies.

A Year in Our Life :: 2012 Album

I really wish I could be disciplined enough to do Project Life... but I'm staring at a binder album for 2011 that's about 40% complete. One of these days I'm going to finish it. My dear husband says our one little word for 2013 needs to be "finish"... and I can't argue.

So when I received a couple of Shutterfly coupons -- one for a free 20-page 8x8 photo book and another for $20 off my order, I decided to take the plunge and use the Project Life templates on Shutterfly to create a 2012 family album. I created this album in about one week, working on it a little bit every day.

Easy peasy. and I love it.

The Many Adventures of Jingle

Meet Jingle. He's our elf on the shelf. Santa told us that Jingle is fairly young for an elf, and is still learning to use his magic. This means he got himself into some mischief throughout the month. He has one more night, and then he'll travel back to the North Pole with Santa until next December. Sean will definitely miss him.

Jingle arrives on December 1
Making sugar angels on the countertop
Bet you can't find me!
Milk should be green!
Jingle even joined us on vacation in Disney World... the first night he took a marshmallow bath.
The second night he attempted to order room service
Keeping in touch with Santa
Spa Day
Swinging from the lamp!
Jingle is an expert artist
He snuck out to see the Osbourne Lights at Disney's Hollywood Studios
Pirate Mickey & Friends got tired of Jingle's shenanigans
Home from Disney safe and sound
Feeling adventurous - bungee jumping from the second floor
Clearly he gets an adrenaline rush from extreme sports - zip lining into the tree
Chilling out watching his favorite Xmas movies on Netflix
Hanging out sipping some syrup
Mischievous ... switching out the stockings with underwear
Barricading Sean in his room
Remembering the reason for the season! O come let us adore him.

Day 3 - Memories :: December Daily 2012

Day 3 contains no photo - gasp! It's just that kind of year :-) And I'm waiting for my husband to write up his journaling. Fingers crossed it happens before I send it to print.

Day 2 - Tree :: December Daily 2013

Traditionally, our Christmas tree goes up Thanksgiving weekend. And this year was no different. Daddy dragged it in from the garage, checked the lights, and up it went. The next day you and I decorated it with ornaments. We can’t find the ribbon garland, and honestly it probably won’t go up this year with all we have going on this month.

Neither Daddy or I grew up with live trees, so we’re content  -- and honestly happy -- with the artificial tree. Our tree right now is huge, standing ten feet tall. It definitely makes a statement! And the multi-colored twinkle lights are magic.  We decorate the tree with ornaments from when Daddy & I were kids, and ones you have made, and others we have bought on vacation.
