School's out!

That's it! I can't believe how quick it has gone but I'm now off until 6th January. It feels very strange but I'm going to have fun getting used to it!
Adam and Emily finished school today too and came home very excited as Santa visited their school and gave every boy and girl a present. It was so lovely to hear all the children running up to their parents after school excitedly saying "Look what Santa gave me today!" My two were no different and couldn't wait to show us.

So, I have some scrapbooking to share don't I?
I've done some more of the 3x4 cards, which I love! I'm enjoying this new feature for this years JYC...

Day 2: These were our first sign of Christmas this year, In November we went to Disneyland Paris just as they were making it all festive. I love this pic of Steve, Adam & Emily:

Day 3: I haven't jounalled on it yet but plan to at some point!

Day 4: The Greatest gift... time (off) Again I haven't done the journaling but I am going to write about how much it means to me to have more time with my family this year.

Day 5: Cards! I love the tradition of Christmas cards, I like writing them and sorting them out into piles for sending and hand delivering. This year we seem to have more, last year seemed to be a busy year (for us too) and the children had more Christmas cards than us...I know it's not all about that but they do look very festive hanging up.

I took a picture of this page in the album too...

... with this years Christmas photo behind it! I can't believe how grown up they look now!

This is on the back of the photo as I just love it, it reminds me of a manifesto from day 1.

Well that takes us to the 5th, enjoy your evening everyone... I'm off for a celebratory glass of wine and some chocolate!!

Speak soon!

These are absolutely wonderful. Makes me wish I was doing a Christmas Journal again this year. It's the first year in 8 years (I think) that I haven't done one. What fun it must have been to be in Disneyland when it was all decorated for Christmas!
