Awards and all.

Well this week has gone quick!! It's been a busy one, busier than usual. Steve has been off this week but for some reason it has still been hectic. Emily won a headteacher award today for completeing her word pot and is so excited, she has worked so hard to learn all the words in it and is a fantastic reader now.  How does that happen? How does my gorgeous little baby suddenly read perfectly? Obviously I am thrilled to bits that Emily is learning and growing (well maybe not thrilled about that last bit), it just tugs at any Mother's heart strings doesn't it? 


This photo is a bit fuzzy but I love how proud Emily looks.

So I think we left at Day 17?

Let's hop and jump to Day 18...


 Instead of writing about Christmas dinner, I decided to make this page about our special Christmas Eve dinner and what was on the menu.

Day 19: 

Meeting the main man. 


Day 20: Something special...


Adam and Emily love writing and drawing and didn't have to think twice when I asked for special Christmas drawings.

Day 21: This is the second Eggnog page in my Christmas album, the first has the recipe but no writing. I made this page to give me space to write about my new recipe that I shared here.

 

Day 22: Favourite memories, of which there are many from this Christmas so I decided to include a gold envelope/pocket to include these.


...and I wanted to include a picture of the kiddies Christingle oranges too


Day 23: My annual page dedicated to Starbucks!! 


I changed it this year as I usually include the cup in some form, instead I added the band from the cup and a picture.


Plus this cute little gift card tag!

Phew, we are getting there. Hope you have a good weekend!

Bye for now.

Well she's looking deservedly proud - and pretty darn adorable to boot. Your pages are looking great - what a nice variety of memories.
