Happy tree hunter AE_DecemberDaily2013Promo It’s Sunday and MT challenged me to find something fun to do. I did. We went on a Tree Hunting Mission. My first thought were to drive in our car up closer to the mountain, but then the snow made that not so easy. Then I figured that we could go out and look for a tree in the woods around the farm, I was not planning on any chopping – but MT insisted on bringing his ax. He wanted to chop down a tree today(!) So off we went – and after a bit we found the perfect little tree which MT got to chop down and bring with him back to the house.

I’m including a bunch of photos today. Most of them I took with my dSLR before we went on our walk, I did not dare bring my camera on a hike in the snowy woods – so I used my cell phone to snap the photos there. 

MT was right – this was a fun thing to do, and now we have a tree in our kitchen, making it look and feel all the better. There are still plenty of messes around here, but we are for sure on the right track. Twinkling light does help a lot; makes it feel like Christmas instantly!

I did the wording online in Avery and am not happy with how it turned out – I had so little control over the look of the text – and will do it over in PSE before I print this for my album. It’ll have to do for now, though.

Thank you so much for coming by. Happy Advent!

Drawing | DecDaily day3
AE_DecemberDaily2013PromoMonday evening we visited my SIL and MT’s aunt for her birthday, it’s a nice December tradition for us (but this time I did not bring my camera so I forgot to mention it yesterday, ups.) MT had two goals for the visit: hug his aunt for her birthday and get his cousin to straighten his hair. So the photos today are all about him – and his hair. I took this in the evening while we sat down a few minutes, I read to him and he drew. Hope to find some more time to do that later this month. I spent today in my office and had confirmant  class in the afternoon. MT had fun at school with his friends and got dinner from Grandma.

Have a nice Advent day – THANKS for coming by!

Digital Scrapbooking | Sep 2013

The first layouts with the new files at The Daily Digi is up on their site, and here is the layout I made. I love his many faces. This time I told him to show me – and so he did a beautiful autumn day many years ago. I created the collage online at picmonkey . SUPEReasy!

Stay true to you!
