P365 DAY 344 – DECEMBER 10TH 2008

I wasn’t sure if we were going to get photos with Santa this year. I hate paying to get photos taken and they always seem so staged and a little risky. Who knows how the kids will react? But then Kei mentioned the Santa at his work and we just had to drop by and meet him. Thomas is so excited about Santa this year and there were no lines to wait in, so it was the perfect opportunity to get some photos.

When he actually saw the man in red in real life though, Thomas became a little shy. Santa gave him a special little gift – a silver bell from the movie Polar Express which we had watched just a few days before so it was pretty perfect.

Of course Samuel had the chance to meet him too.

And here’s the Christmas card picture – if I was organized enough to actually send Christmas cards that is.

Finally some layouts

I have been scrapping. Not that you’d know since this has become more of a photo blog. My mojo has been a little MIA but somehow I managed to create enough pages to finish my 2008 book (which arrived a couple of days ago and looks fabulous. It even arrived in time to make it to Australia by Christmas).

The one thing I learned through the whole book-printing process is that the page that mean the most to me – the ones I choose to print – are those with the most journaling. In the end it’s the story that matters, not the design. (would still like some mojo back though).

Here are a few of my latest pages.
