More 25 Days of Christmas...

Shelby took her last two finals yesterday and I'm waiting for her to finish up at the University so I can make the two-hour trip to pick her up. She doesn't start her next term until the end of January so she needed to give her dorm room a thorough cleaning since she'll be away for so long (and knowing what a messy girl she is this may take a few hours!) While I'm waiting I thought I'd post days 11 through 18 from my 25 Days of Christmas album...
On day 13 I baked...and baked...and baked. I did something a little different this year and used an envelope as the page...I put the picture and the journaling on the front and tucked all the cookie recipes inside for safe keeping. If this album holds up for a few centuries it'll be fun to think my great great grandchildren can bake the same cookies I did.
On Day 14 I addressed all the Christmas cards and used an extra one for that day's "posting"...journaling is on the back of the card.
On the 17th we went to visit Santa...the year we all got our picture taken with him (except for Shelby who was preparing for finals at the University). I didn't glue the picture to background paper, I just punched holes in it and used it as it's own page...here's the back...

I still have 7 more days to go and this album is so thick I think I'm going to need bigger rings to bind it!
