December Daily - Days Thirteen thru Fifteen

Chugging along here, been busy trying to get gifts finished up and mailed to those that needed mailing and trying to enjoy ourselves along the way.

Day thirteen, I wanted to show some of the outdoor decorations this year since we changed it up a bit from last year.

Larry said he thought this photo below looked like it was from a magazine, I said 'why thank you' and patted myself on the back.  Thanks Cannon for handling low light so well!

Day fourteen, saw a trip to Costco to pick up my cards I had uploaded the day before. That meant two trips to Costco in two days.  Normally I wouldn't do that but I had to pick something up to ship and it had to go that day, so that required the two trips.  They printed the cards beautifully so I forgave them.  I designed the cards myself and I love they way they came out.  Having professional shots done this year sure helps a lot. 

Simone really wanted to help send them out so she helped stuff and seal them for us.  I took care of attaching the stamps just to make sure they were on straight.  I saved the extra stickers from the stamp packs, I thought they were cute and festive.

Today was the last day of school for Simone before winter break so they had a party.  It was great, the kids had been practicing and sang us four songs.  The teachers passed out gifts from them plus the sock exchange that they did for each other.  They had also made gifts for the parents, the cutest little ornaments with their photos on them.  Everyone brought in food to share so we had snacks and visited with each other.  I'm so looking forward to all of the Christmas pageants that Simone will have going forward, its so cute to see the kids so excited.

Enjoy your evening!
