December 4: Operation Christmas Child

Packing gift boxes that will make a trip overseas.

December 3: trimming the tree

With two new cats in the house this year, the concept of a Christmas tree is one big experiment. We put it up and left it for a week before we decorated it. The cats like to play under the tree but mostly stay out of it. We have kept a few of our best things packed away this year though. I am not risking Liam's little clay handprint, Mallory's glass Baby's 1st Christmas rocking horse, etc.

The advent calendars are broken open. Note to file for next year: there is not much selection left when you do your Advent calendar shopping on November 29.

December 1: Reindeer Run

I am back on the wagon for doing December Daily again this year - my 7th (!) year running. This is one of my very favourite holiday traditions. You can learn more about December Daily if you are so inclined here.

I won't have all my photos printed day by day, but do hope to have my pages planned out each night with the only thing left undone being the prints themselves. Since I won't have completed pages til January I thought I could at least post one of the shots of the day from each page to keep me on track and remind me of what goes where.

I adhere to the 'daily' part of this only very loosely. We had multiple events on Sunday so the others will appear later in the month, and there's a holiday event or two that happened in November that will magically shift to December for memory keeping purposes, too. It's all good.

Here's to December 2013!
