December Daily Week One.

 Here is the first week of my December Daily.  I always start with Thanksgiving then jump to December 1st.  I love documenting Thanksgiving and that is the night our little Elf comes to visit.
First pages.
page one has all these tags with pictures of the family.  There are pictures and journaling on the back of these tags also.
Page 2 is the morning after Thanksgiving and Snowflake appearing for the first time this year.
You flip that page and here is a picture of my kids and myself.  
I did a lot of journaling on the actual picture.

Day 1  
We did more this Saturday than what I can put into this little book.
We woke up early that morning, Natalie and Dad took a ride to Denny's while Monica and I followed in the car.  Natalie loves ridding that bike, I have no doubt one day she will be a biker chick.
 We also picked the tree that day, but not before Natalie and Dad rode to the farm stand to buy some tomatoes, eggplants and onions. Monica and I drove to the dollar store to see what we could find.
 These two are always clowing around.
Day 2 and 3
Natalie was sick today, but I had to send her to school.  She did call me a few hours later because she did not feel well and wanted my sister or myself to pick her up.  We did.
 Mr. Snowflake, up to his old tricks.  This year I'm scrapping him a little more since I don't know how many more times he will be coming to visit.  
Day 4  
 My anual Crema de Vie (Egg Nog), this is the bomb!!!
I'm actually making my second batch tonight.
 Finally the tree got the lights on.  But it took another two days before I started decorating it.
 Day 5
 Piano practice
 Natalie and I laying on the couch watching The Sound of Music Life.
I don't know if I loved it as much as I love the movie, but I enjoyed it.
Day 6
(I just realized my days are not right will fix it in my book)
 Natalie had her Christmas Day at school, Santa came to visit and they were taking pictures with him.
Stan and I had a Fundraiser at Night. 
We met our friend Shirly, Mike, Richard and Mel.  It was wonderful, there were lots of sports personalities and football players that I knew from when I was a young girl.

 This is one Tag that I placed a photo on both sides, need to do the journaling still.
You remember Dunk from the Harlem Globetrotters.
 Day 7
 In the morning Monica volunteered at the Hope Equestrian center, this was her first day and she really loves it.  
 Stan played golf for the Larry Little foundation, the person with him is Mercury Morris from the best Miami Dolphin team ever 1972.... 
Later that evening the girls came over and the adults enjoyed some fine wine and dinner and the
little kids ran around the house.  I love a full house.
 Day 8
 GATOR BOYS time....
Jimmy was at the Toy Run.
Natalie took her longest bike ride, she rode for a little over 50 miles at 6:00am. Monica, Anabel and I followed them, I was petrified of her riding for so long, she loved it. Don't scream she had a helmet on for that ride, she took it or for the 15 mph an hour ride into the park ( I wish she would of left it on). 
 Handling a gator, can you tell how excited she is.
 This one is fearless.
 Just playing around in the park, the veterans had this big flag and for a $1 donation we could take pictures in front of it.  
 Natalie and Jimmy.  Paul is her favorite and the only one she has not met.
Maybe next time.
 I you ever get the chance to visit Holiday Park on US 27 in Broward check them out it's pretty cool.  And the Airboat tour is great also.
This ends my first week, I have redone this book at least 3 times, I'm still not 100% crazy in love with it, but this year it will stay like this, I'm just happy I have been able to stay in track with it.

Thank you so much for stopping by.
