Christmas Memories

It's hard to believe Christmas has come and gone! Hope you all had a wonderful, memorable holiday with family and friends. We had a quite Christmas with just our little family of five. It snowed on Wednesday (12/23) and kept on snowing, so we did have a White Christmas. It was nice to look out the window and see fluffy white snow on Christmas, it's the only time of year I love to see snow!

It was so fun to watch the kids and Ty keep track of where Santa was. They would check the computer about every 45/1hour just to see where Santa had landed. Loved seeing the expressions on my kids faces as daddy clicked on different areas around the world to see if Santa had visited there. They were so excited they couldn't wait for santa to come to our house, but that meant going to bed.

Christmas morning we all were up early as the kids were ready to open gifts from Santa and see what they got in their stockings! After stocking and gifts were opened, off to the kitchen to enjoy my homemade cinnamon rolls.

As a tradition in our house on Christmas morning, we have cinnamon rolls and the kids get to drink hot chocolate with marshmallows. (coffee for me and Ty) They love being able to drink hot coco for breakfast, it's such a special treat for them.

All in all, we had a peaceful, relaxing Christmas and look forward to the New Year!

Santa Share

I'm so excited about our Santa photo's this year!!! Our little guy finally sat on Santa's lap!!! Yeah! He was so excited to see Santa, and mommy was so excited to finally get a picture of him with santa. I can't wait to add our new photo's in my Santa hat mini album.

I'm finally done Christmas shopping!!! The grandparents gifts have been sent, the cookies have been baked, the kids are out for holiday break and I'm looking forward to scrapping again! But first I have to wrap all the gifts and finish up the grandparents 2010 calendars, then I can scrap!!!

I hope you are having a wonderful December filled with many blessings!

Gingerbread Mini Album Share

I came across this cute little gingerbread man album at Michaels awhile back. I knew right away that I wanted to use this album to display our yearly gingerbread houses. I thought this would be a cute way to capture the memories instead of making multiple 12 x 12 layouts each year. I hope you enjoy the video and that it inspires you to think of a way to capture your holiday traditions.
