Hello Blog Readers,

Between holidays, birthdays, illness and vacation, blogging is taking a back burner.
I will be back in January, with lots of pretty projects to share.

Coming back from being sick, thank goodness.

Yesterday we laid low, and I got a little scrapbooking in.
I made this page using some Elle's Studio tags and some October Afternoon Holiday Style. Pin It Now!

December Daily - Day 15 & 16

Day 15 and 16 are cause for celebration!

Ryan finished his finals yesterday, and today, I had my yearly review and was awarded a raise!

We celebrated by heading down to Idaho Falls and eating dinner at Red Robin.



Tonight we'll read some Christmas stories and I will be working on Zoe's quilt for Christmas.

December Daily - Day 14

Day 14 was Zoe's Preschool Christmas Concert.

We got all dressed up and headed over to the Rexburg Tabernacle, which is a beautiful building inside and out.

We got to watch a slideshow of all the kids and hear them sing their practiced songs.
I was going to borrow a video camera from Karli, but didn't have time, so I video taped the songs on my iPhone. I uploaded a few so you can enjoy the special event too.


This one is my favorite. Zoe and her friend, Taylor, are sharing a microphone and Zoe keeps covering Taylor's mouth with her hand. Camera hog for sure.



After the concert, Santa made a special visit. Zoe was first in line, and I sprinted up to the stage with my camera to snap a couple pictures.


I love this year that she actually wants to talk to Santa. She tells him she wants the same thing every time, "a few games." That's all.

December Daily - Day 13



I wanted to share this random layout along with some random things from this week
- We found out Zoe is afraid of The Muppets, and learned that fact, we wasted $20 and a perfectly good evening.
- I firmly believe, marshmallows + butter melted, would taste good on anything, but on popcorn, it's amazing

- Usually I put Zoe down for a nap and 4 out of 5 times, she just plays quietly in her room. Well I discovered that if I lay her down in my bed, she actually takes a nap!

December Daily - Day 11


































Made this quick page of my friend Amanda's little boy Duncan. I had so much fun taking pictures of him, plus the Amy tan leaves, I just couldn't resist using 2 whole packages.

We're heading over to a friend's house for desserts a little later. Sigh, I feel like the holiday season is just slipping through my fingers. Too busy. Hoping to change that this week.

XOXO,

December Daily - Day 9


Yesterday, Zoe and I had some fun together, we made candy cane reindeer and sang Christmas carols.


We drove around after we had dinner with some friends and looked at all the lights on main street.


And then I finished the quilt I was making, and starting on another one.

I know these cards have nothing to do with my post, I just made them and wanted to share.

XOXO,

December Daily - Day 8

Well today my little one is a bit under the weather.
Thankfully, she is still in bright spirits, we're just laying low.

But I've got a fun craft to share.

Colored Snow Flakes
Supplies:
-crayons/markers
-white cardstock
-scissors
or
-diecutting machine (ie. Silhouette)
-snowflake shapes



Start by coloring the white cardstock in any fashion you prefer, we chose scribbling :)

Then either fold you paper and cut away, or load your paper into your electronic cutter and select the size you prefer.

We chose to do really BIG snowflakes, but you could also smaller ones and hang them from strings.


Hang them up and enjoy!

XOXO,
Holly & Co.

December Daily - Day 4


Yesterday, I decided to make these jammie pants for Zoe for Christmas morning.

I used THIS TUTORIAL I found on Pinterest.
I used some cute flannel and they pants came together in about an hour, give or take.
 I took breaks for bathtime and storytime.

Since they were so fast and easy to make...I see several more pairs in my future :)

XOXO,
Holly & Co.

December Daily - Day 3


Thanks to my new Silhouette machine, I made this fun little treat bag for Zoe's preschool teacher.
We're gonna fill it with some candy and a gift card.

Shapes I used:

adorable_box_20_C00658_20509

This weekend, I decided to make a quilt as a Christmas present and that's what I've been doing for the past few nights. It's a bit of a lofty goal, but so far it's going well. Thankfully, almost all of my other Christmas shopping is done so I've got 3 weeks to finish it.

XOXO,

December Daily - Day 1

Hello Dear Blog Readers,

I've been a little more absent than I'd like lately, our trip, combined with sickness, combined with holidays, got me a bit off track...but I'm back and just in time for my favorite blogging month of the year, December.

That's right, I'll be doing December Daily again this year, and I've got some fun stuff planned.

Today, as the first day of December, Zoe and I will be writing her letter to Santa tonight. I made this layout with a special envelope just for this occasion.


































I'm planning on using Project Life, rather than a specific mini album to document our month. Are you doing anything specific to record your holiday memories?

XOXO,
Holly & Co Pin It Now!
