I'm really enjoying the process of my December Daily album. The project encourages me to pull my camera out and document some of the everyday things that sometimes go unmentioned.
For day 5 of the album, it was all about decorating gingerbread houses with my parents. The kids really look forward to doing this every year.
It was fun watching each of the kids decoarte with their own style. Max "went to town" (as he said) and threw frosting in the house so that it would look like a blizzard had hit and the people in the house were all snowed in. The girls were much more neat and careful with their designs. I think they all turned out great! Now we get to enjoy them in our kitchen for the rest of the month.
I took a bunch of photos during the gingerbread house decorating, but didn't fit them all in the album. Here's a look at a few of my other favorite photos.
My story for yesterday was about eating dinner together as a family. We have been pretty busy lately and it's been hard to have everyone home for dinner at the same time. Last night we ate together and I took pictures to celebrate the moment. If it wan't for this album, these pictures wouldn't have been taken.
It's nice to have a little extra motivation to pull out the camera.
I'm slowing checking off my lists this week. Most of the kids' gifts were ordered online this morning. Got to love online shopping! Just need to pick up a few other things and all of my gift shopping will be complete. Making a little progress everyday.
