6th December

Good morning!!

Well, our day 6 is a little later than it has been so far this week - we were out until after the kiddies bedtime last night and I'm not the world's best photographer, especially in the dark!

We had a fairly quiet start to the day yesterday. I did some colouring - can't wait to share that but it is a Christmas gift so it's all hush hush for now ;)

My littlest guy has not been himself still :( He threw up a couple more times yesterday so we have limited his food, water and milk intake. Poor little fellow though he seems mostly happy in himself, go figure!!

The afternoon saw us headed down to the local foreshore for a fun, relaxing afternoon with my Mum's group.

The boys had heaps of fun running around and playing on the park. The Mum's and Dad's enjoyed a way overdue catch up and chat!!

Our tradition with Mum's group instead of us all buying all the other kids gifts we all buy a Christmas themed book for our own kids. We didn't have a Santa this year but one of the bigger little guys did mention he saw a cheeky Elf deliver the wrapped gifts under the big gum tree we were sitting under.

This photo didn't make our album but here are the books after delivery

And our day 6 spread

Top left pocket is the back of the vellum card from Day 5 with a little alteration from how it looked yesterday. I had been wondering how I could use that gorgeous little envelope from the kit and this fit perfectly since I totally forgot to leave a place for journalling - oops!! A tag from my stash, some gold journalling and some red ribbon attached with a tiny attacher. My littlest lil guy with his book - not bad for a child that is "not well"!! Bottom left, my big lil dude and bottom right, our day card. Also from the kit.

I actually really love the way this card turned out!! It was a vellum card with the gold stars embossed across the card. I added a circle label from my stash, the "memories" banner also from my stash and hand stitched the border with some gorgeous teal thread I picked up during the year. The twine, 6 and mini alphas are all a part of TSS kits :D

This is now what the Day 5 card looks like. If you have a look at this post, you can see the difference. Love how it just worked!!

And the journalling for the day. It's not hidden at all, just in the envelope so it had somewhere to go!! The washi was wrapped around from the front of the card, the envelope stuck with glossy accents where the pieces from the front are so you can't see the adhesive, another red label and some gold alphas :)

That wraps up our 6, now time to get ready for the fun of day 7. This morning we are heading out for my littlest lil guy's Daycare Christmas party. And he is wearing a gorgeous shirt they made at Daycare. Reindeer made with his little hands and foot prints!! So cute <3

Happy December 7th!!
