I'm full of excitement as December has arrived! I know I am a day late but yesterday took a lot out of me!
It was Dec day!
I take the decorating quite seriously (I know - weird!) and started at 10am in the living room, the tree went up (with a little help from a certain young man), it was decorated, the garlands went around the fireplace, I decorated them and the finishing touches were put around the room.
This took 3.5 Hours! As I said, I had help! Adam thought it would be highly amusing to tangle three sets of lights together - it was a good job I was in high spirits! Of course we kept to our tradition and Chevy Chase Christmas Vacation was on in the background through the decorating process.
I also decorated the hall, the kitchen, Adam & Emily's room and my craft room.
I finished at 5.30pm! Boy was I tired, so I spent the evening chilling with a glass of wine and then crashed into bed!
I haven't forgotten the usual Thursday going-ons, I'm still knitting the green stocking and will share more next Thursday. I think this is going to be a big post without that too!
Now onto another exciting December feature!
My manifesto for JYC:
.....and as I am following elements of December Daily as well, here is my additional page:
Some days there will be lots of piccys to add and other days I will only journal, it all depends how busy I get!
My journaling for today is on a seperate card, which you will see as my album grows.
It didn't snow during the day yesterday, I was quite disappointed as I wanted it to snow on dec day so badly. Then at about 6pm it started snowing and it didn't stop!!!!
This was taken at about 10pm
...and this was this morning at 8.30am!!!!!
We have so much snow! It was creeping up the door and the sides of the car, I am so excited as the prompt for today is frightful weather and I can actually scrap about the snow for once!
Phew, I need to calm down. I'm worse than the kids!
