Documenting December {Days 11 - 16}


Well December keeps chugging along, but that's okay because that means my sister will be here soon! We're a mess when we get around each other, giggling like a couple of school girls, saying random words that no one else understands, and of course watching The Family Stone and Love Actually together.

Sorry, got a little sidetracked! :) I decided to make some polar bear ornaments and actually use my sewing machine on something other than paper. Day 12 brought us blue skies which was a nice change from the grey ones that brought snow, then ice.


They were calling for more bad weather over the weekend, so the hubs and I went out on the 13th to drive around and look at the lights. It's a tradition we do every year that begins with coffee and a doughnut. On the 14th, my CY365 prompt was wishlist and also self-portrait.


Day 15 fell on a Sunday, which at this time of year means football with my parents. We almost always bring the food, sitting down to eat just as the game starts. Chili mac was on the menu! On the 16th I found myself gathering all my thoughts, recipes, and grocery list for the special meals and baking I'll be doing between now and the new year.



Hope your December has been going well and I look forward to seeing any holiday projects you've been working on!

  2. Love love love! I LOVE that picture with your hand out with the hearts - how neat! Silent Night is probably one of my all-time favorite lines, so you know I love all you did with it. Pretty snowflakes - do you have a die for that or a punch? Lovely gathered ribbon too - great job!
