December Daily/Journal Your Christmas
This is the second year that I've done Shimelle's "Journal Your Christmas". I was excited about it last year, and I think I am even more excited about it this year, because I actually feel like I have the Christmas spirit!
I didn't necessarily follow the prompts last year, but I was certainly inspired by them. I didn't create a physical book last year, I just did my posts here on my blog (that is, until my computer crashed and I lost all my photos!) 2 years ago, I created this album,
I am the kind of person who likes to plan things. So, I have a tentative schedule of things that I want to do with the kids each day. Some are very simple, like today's is to make Christmas lists. Others are crafty in nature, and others are just activities we will do together.
I want to remember each day, whether my planned activities work out or not.
Will I care about the details in 10 years? Or will I just like seeing the activities that we do each year, and those that are unique to one year in particular? I don't know.
So, what do I want to do for this year?
Well, the easiest thing for me, and therefore the one that is at first, most appealing, is to simply blog here every day, (the day after) and keep this as my record. However, I am desparately missing the feeling of putting paper, words and pictures together. But, do I have time (or will I make time) to spend every day making a scrapbook page?
I don't know.
There are an awful lot of "I don't know"'s in this post. I'm still figuring things out, but for now, I will post each day here.
Happy December everyone!
