This guy was the reason for this trip. Recovering from a masiive stroke and needing surgery. He waked out of the hospital with no assistance and no rehab; amazing. He said he could not have asked for a better Christmas gift.

December Daily 2012

It's that wonderful time of year and I am doing my 5th December Daily scrapbook inspired by Ali Edwards.
For the cover I used a page from the MME 6x6 Christmas paper pad and the inside pages from the DCWV The Crafty Christmas paper pad. As usual the dimensions are 6x9.  I am back to using 3 rings.  Last year I used the bind-it-all but I like the flexibility of rings.  This year I am using 2 pages for each day, left side for journaling and right side for pictures. I used the Ali Edwards Studio AE 25 Moments to stamp December and then the number on the backside of the journal page.
I used my Photo 365 App to help me with the daily pictures. This was lasts year's calender.  It takes me a year to finish my book so being able to refer back to this calender was great.
Have a great week and and awesome December!

Happy 3rd Birthday to our Superhero

Dominick has his father's love for sports and smile. He idolizes him and glows when he walks in the door. He adores his mother. She spends the day teaching him his ABC's, numbers, shapes and colors.  He loves his family especially his new cousin Mattie. He says please, thank you and may I please. He is smart and funny and brightens our every waking moment. 
Invite created by Chris
 Chris created this scene for him. She spent hours cutting all the shapes.
Amazing Cake by Chrissy. She said this is her favorite so far.
She baked and free hand the cookies too.
cupcakes created by Jada. She baked and dyed all the colors to coordinate with each superhero.
