Posted: 12/16/2013 9:34:58 PM behind being busy with Christmas!

Day 15 (yesterday) - I'm making it be about how it's 10 days until Christmas and at the 10 day mark, I always feel sad that it will soon be over. I treasure my trees and decorations and look at them a lot and think of how magical this season is. I want to soak up every moment of it!

Day 16 - I don't have a clue yet what I am making it about because we did nothing exciting and I didn't take a picture. So I'll come up with something like a favorite Christmas memory.

Day 17 (tomorrow) - our Ladies Christmas Party at church is tomorrow night so I'll make it be about that.

How about you????

Day 15: DH & dd were out of state at a cheer comp all weekend. Few photos, and I don't think there are any paper souvenirs, and they came in 2nd. This page will be a struggle!

Dec 16 & 17: about my new obsession with dyed bottle brush trees ( Thank you Elizabeth Kartchner) and glitter/putz houses. I bought the trees to dye and the houses to paint back in October..... Need to get on that.

December 15th -- My daughter wrote her letter to Santa.

December 16h -- Nothing really going on, but I have some new Yuletide artwork from my daughter that will likely be put here

December 17th -- My hubby is down with the flu. I think I'll take some photos of the wrapped gifts under the tree or something. We were going to go to the town north of here and see the big Christmas light display, but obviously that is going to be put on hold.

Day 15 - I don't think I took any photos. I'll probably use some photos that I took around our city.

Day 16 - Present wrapping day. I might add a piece of our wrapping paper if I have spaces left (doing a small PL style).

Day 17 - Completely undecided, lol. I don't have much planned except for some errands.

Day 16 was some non Christmas journaling about my husbands surgery. There were some wishes in there about this being the last one so I guess that is my Christmas wish.

Day 15: saw the Christmas Spectacular at Radio City Music Hall. I've wanted to bring my kids to this show for years. They loved it.

Day 16: brought the kids to Bass Pro Shop to get their picture with Santa, DS didn't want to but I still got his picture with the reindeer that was walking around. It was their first trip here and my DD kept saying as she walked around, "I found my joy". That will def be going on the page.

Day 17: not sure yet. Maybe I'll turn it into a movie night (Polar Express) with hot cocoa. We'll see.

Dec 15th was suposed to bake shortbreads but packed up my Xmas parcel to my family and took it out to be posted. Will bake when I feel stronger and send another parcel.

Dec 16th was a chest Xray for me to rule out pneumonia...canèt beat this dry cough and tired out feeling...eldest daughter came home from Monaco for Xmas and dH went to pick her up while I did the Xray wait thingy...might just do a photo of her and a skeleton.

Dec 17th was our all day trip across the obrder to Xmas shop for last minute things and the groceries for Christmas supper. I am scrapping my passport and the table full of things that now need wrapped.

Oh, we missed you! I figured you were enjoying December! I'm with you, it is going way too fast and I am looking at my DD getting filled up and part of me is so stinkin loving it and part of me is just sad it's almost over!

Day 15 I'm not sure about yet.
Day 16 we made our favorite cookies!
Day 17 we went to downtown Greensboro to drop off some food for the food bank and to see the hanging lights - sooo cool. My low light photography sucks but I think I got a few that will work.

Six more days to go!
