December Daily - Day 1 & 2

I began my December Daily, my very first one, by journaling a bit on the calendar page. I really like the size and thickness because this will definitely not need a page protector and acts as a good front page. I'm really not a pro at this and am just trying to keep up. I think it's important to do this to document the everyday things this holiday season.

I stamped with my favorite mini-alpha by Hero Arts using gray ink for the numbers and red ink for the "merry christmas."

For the first official day, I outsourced the photo and journaling. Since I'm on bedrest, my good friend Ashley was watching Claire and I asked her to take a photo and tell me something about their day. For the first time ever, Claire visited a school, to see Ashley's oldest son Jackson for lunchtime. Apparently she was a hit and LOVED it. My first reaction was that Claire won't eat Chicken Noodle Soup at home, but clearly she would do anything at school :)

For day 2, I chose to do a 2-page spread. I printed this photo at Walgreen's and it turned out a tad dark. The journaling tells about Claire's very specific and standard morning routine. I fear the day when she won't eat the same breakfast she has for the past 3 months.

I'll be back tomorrow with Day 3. I've already taken my photo and journaled. Yay me!
