Another Ali Edwards perennial project: December Daily. I mentioned back in December that I was embarking on another album – largely as a result of getting to celebrate Christmas 2015 in our new home.
I have to tell you – 2015 as a year was a tad stressful. Don’t let anyone tell you building a new home, selling your old one, and then actually moving into the new home is a piece of cake. Seriously. And then add into the mix the bright idea of inviting as many of your extended family members as are available to join you in your first ever Christmas in the new place!!
Stressful? Yeah, a wee bit. It involved paving the outdoor area right up to the arrival of the first visitor! Well, that was for hubby. For me, it may have involved less labourious tasks such as deciding to use new recipes. For everything.
Anyway, it gave me the chance to document our slightly crazy first-christmas-in-the-new-house experience.
I’d already decided that I wasn’t going to keep up with the pulling together of the album while the experiences were being experienced. I may be crazy – but I’m not that mad! Huh!! Photos were taken, notes were made, fun was had in December, and then once January hit, the paper, alphas, glue and scissors were pulled out.
Here’s a look at a few of the pages so far.
The boys are now “too big” for Santa photos. Sigh!!
Finding homes for our decorations is a new activity.
Along with photos and stories, there’s also a place for purely fun elements.
I’m hoping to wrap up this project shortly so will be back to share a few more glimpses of the final album.
