Welcome to December Daily™ 2013 | Day Two.
The kids came home yesterday (after a weekend with Chris) which always includes a transition period and a lot of hugs. The thing they were most excited for was to open their Lego Advent calendars. Long time readers will know that’s a pretty big deal around here. But everything changed when Simon discovered an elf had arrived.
Here’s a look at my Day Two:
Day Two ended up being two spreads (a total of four pages). It sounds like a lot but I wanted to include the Santa letter which gave me space for another photo.
The first two pages include a 4×6 journal card where I wrote about the elf appearing at our house + a photo of Simon and Anna calling Chris to tell him about the elf + an enlarged photo of the elf + #Christmas word art.
I love having some things included in this project that aren’t in the page protectors. Love the mixture of the two.
Around the edge of the letter I added some of the gold glitter ribbon from the kit – cut in half right down the middle of the roll to stretch out the yardage over the next 23 days.
I have to tell you that my heart was bursting a little bit to see Simon and Anna’s shared joy this afternoon. They decided on the name together after some back and forth and then they had a couple secret meetings with one another. I love that they are getting to the place where they look to each for input and are able to share in each other’s joy (at least for a moment or two).
And man do I love those enlarged photos.
