December Daily – Day 7

I ran out of ink on Monday so I couldn’t print any of my pictures and now I’m playing catch up with my pages. 

We had fun tonight watching movies and making Sidney laugh.

We tried a new honey lime enchilada recipe and it just might be the best thing I’ve ever made.  And I don’t think it was the three glasses of wine talking.  Even Mike loved them.  You should definitely try them right away.  They are that good.

December Daily–Day 4

Just a typical Sunday for us today.  Didn’t really do anything Christmas-y.  I didn’t take many pictures either.  But I did manage to catch this picture of Sidney mid jump with my phone when she was playing hopscotch in her room.

December Daily - Day 3

We had quite an adventure yesterday.  We planned on going to the park, having a picnic, taking a nice long walk and then playing around in the leaves for a bit.  We sat down to eat our sandwiches and were immediately swarmed by ducks.  Sidney started screaming and was scared so we  moved everything into our van and ate in there. 

We finished eating, got out the stroller and tried to pack our bags in the storage area but I decided the bag was too big so I threw it back into the van and shut the door.  Then I realized my keys and my phone were in the bag.  Oops.  First time I’ve ever locked my keys in the car. 

We walked to a dry cleaners thinking we could get a metal hanger and jimmie the lock.  It didn’t work.  While we were all standing around the van a couple came over to help us.  I think they felt really bad that both of the girls were outside getting cold.  They called AAA and waited with us while the tow truck came to open the door.   They were so nice sitting in the cold with us.  There really are amazing people willing to give a little help even when it’s an inconvenience.  I don’t think I was able to express how much I appreciated it.

So, we still got to eat, walked a different path, met some new people and eventually played in the leaves.

December Daily–Day 2

We started our Elf tradition yesterday and the girls are going crazy!  They love him so much already and he’s only been around for a day.  We named him Scout and Madison kept trying to trick him into moving.  It was a good story for day two.

December Daily – Day 1

I haven't done much scrapbooking since starting Project Life, so it took me a while to get day one finished.  I had to re-learn how to use photoshop elements, re-learn how to work my sewing machine and re-learn how to use the scanner.  Finally it's done and I can move on to day two.

Madison and Sidney got to watch a Christmas movie last night before bed.  They picked Shrek the Halls and they were glued to the TV.   After Sidney went to bed, we had a dance party with Madison.  She is so funny with her rules.  I was not allowed to wear an apron and everyone had to wear boots.
