FINALLY! December Daily Day 15-20!!!

OMG, been so long since I posted my pages. The days are going by so quickly and Christmas is fast approaching. I haven't been feeling so well (stomach flu) these past few days so no energy to do any updating or catching up on my DDs. Here they are!
{Day 20}
A quiet day spent at home. Tommy had fixed up Ethan's room so we can start teaching Ethan to sleep in his room. He opened up a Christmas present from his "mama" (grandma)...a Thomas comforter.

{Day 19}

We went to our best friends' home for supper. Ethan was super excited to see Liam and play with his Thomas train set.

{Day 18}
Today I went to the doctor's office. =) After that, spent the day at home then some midnight shopping at the mall and Old Navy with my sister, her boyfriend and Ethan.

{Day 17}
Had to go into work to a 2 hour meeting. Gave my little presents to the other CRNs and my manager. I also gave a cute little frog with a crown to my good friend, Natasha. Natasha and I went for dinner and shopping afterwards.
{Day 16}
Today was an interesting day. It was late dad's would be 50th birthday. Just wrote a little something for him. I found a picture of us 4 sledding back in the day so I had to include it in this album. I also found out something on my own...the little journal card tucked in the larger journal card represents that. Then I took a picture chilling on the floor with his Thomas blanket & Mommy bunny bear.
{Day 15}
Looked at many different places for a winter coat for Ethan and finally found this adorable gray one from gap. It's pretty warm. Unfortunately, I still haven't found snow pants.

I will continue this later... got to do some chores!!

Day Four to Eight!

I finally caught up last night with my December Daily pages.

{Day 4}

I had multiple photos I wanted to place for this day. I usually make little square pictures, but since it was a pocket, I just printed off 3.75X5" pictures and glued them back to back. I added a piece of ribbon on top so it can be pulled out of the pocket.
This is the back page of the pocket...just added a group shot.
{Day 5}

Tommy went out shopping and bought a Keurig coffeemaker! Totally awesome! Makes a cup of flavored coffee or tea in under a minute. I joked that this was my early christmas present and he said "yes". We weren't going to exchange gifts, but oh well, this is mine!

{Day 6}

We spent all of Sunday shopping for the kids' of our friends. Spent our time between Wal-Mart & ToysRUs. This is not even all the gifts. We still need to grab gifts for the 2 newborns & 2 older kids. Honestly, only 3 or 4 years ago, we were only buying presents for 1 baby. Now all of our friends have gotten married and have children. Including us. =) But it makes christmas much more fun!

{Day 7}

Quiet day spent at home. On this picture, I documented what Ethan was liking and disliking, the things he knew to do or say. One day I hope he looks back at this and is happy I did this for him.

I had to add an extra page. We went out to the shopping mall and Tommy had promised Ethan that if he was a good boy he can have candy. We ended up buying some candy canes. When we got home Ethan put the candy canes up on the tree.

{Day 8}

Finally took Santa photos today. Last year we waite an HOUR to take pictures and another 15 minutes to get them! This year I decided to go during the week, early in the day, so that no line ups. Plus, it's earlier in December. We got in and out quickly. Ethan didn't cry either. So happy! He just talked about "Thomas" and "Sodor" to Santa. But he talks so fast that I don't think Santa understood him. LOL.

This is another pocket page I made. I made a little "bookmark" to insert into the page.

That's it for now! Hopefully I keep up for the next week...i'm back to work for seven evening shifts in a row so it'll be hard to keep up!

Day Two & Three

It's been such a busy past week that I never got the chance to complete these pages till now.
Day four, five, six & seven still to come!
Day 2: I just took a photo of a tree in my mom's backyard in the evening. There were light flurries which cannot been seen in the photo. December 2nd I went to a "healing" party funeral service for a young patient of mine and it made me think of what's important in life especially during the holidays.

{Back of Day 2}

This is me (standing my favorite boots at the moment) looking at (1) how i'm not knee deep in snow & (2) fresh snowfall and i'm the first to make an imprint! I love the look of fresh, untouched snow.

Day 3:

{Front of Day 3}

I caught Ethan sitting by the christmas tree reading his newly aquired book, How the Grinch Stole Christmas". What a funny kid...thinks he knows what he is reading. =) {Back of Day 3}

Oh! In other news...I woke up this morning, and first thing I did was log onto Ali Edward's blog . And guess what!? I WON a giveaway!! That's crazy! I NEVER win anything! How cool is that! Soooo giddy today. hehehehe.

That's it for now!! Day four to seven to come later this evening... Time to do some housework! =S


Wednesday, December 2, 2009


Just got home so I haven't started Day 2 yet. I will complete it later and make the post afterwards.

First snowfall in December in Winnipeg that is sticking and staying on the ground. I'm quite happy that it's December and it's still quite warm (for Winnipeg). Very happy! It's currently -6C and light flurries. Uh, awesome! This time last year I was bundled up in a very thick down coat, long underwear (hahaha) and mitts, scarf and toque. Hehehe. Just that i'm re-learning (among every other Winnipegger) to drive SLOWLY on the slick roads.

Anyway, i'm heading out for a prayer funeral service at 7pm for that patient I had talked about recently. She passed away last week. I'm quite sad and affected by it. Going to go "celebrate" her life with her families, friends and other nurses who cared for her.

December Daily: December 1

First page in my December Album. Simple and cute. I created a Christmas ornament (my plan for each year) for Ethan. I saw the tutorial on Elle's Studio blog yesterday so I went to Michael's last night and grabbed my supplies. Not bad for my first attempt. I'm thinking of creating an ornament for a few of the kids for friends. I also used a Mickey Mouse sticker since Ethan LOVES Mickey Mouse Clubhouse right now.

At this moment, Ethan is lying on the floor watching Mickey Mouse Clubhouse on PVR. LOL.
That's it for now.

Our Christmas Card 2009

It's past 3am and i'm still up printing up our Christmas cards for this year. I finally finished it. I swear, creativity flows late at night...for me anyway.

All done in Photoshop. Swirls/flourish brushes from House of 3. I'm adding either a deep red or green or maybe even gray cardstock to make it sturdy and it'll have a border. I even photoshopped Tommy's eyes. In the original photo, he is looking away. =)

One project down. Just need to get my addresses and send them out! But, that'll be for tomorrow. Or the weekend. Time to head to bed! Good night!
