December Daily, part 1 {Birds of a Feather December Kit; Fancy Pants: Saint Nick}

I am desperately behind in my December Daily album, but I'm still trying to get caught up. Now that school is out and all of my photography sessions are edited, I should be able to catch up easier :) We had pictures with Santa before December but I wanted to be sure that I included that photo somewhere. I meant to put the date as 11/2011. Oops! Hard to see in the photo but I've used some Shimmerz paint around the border of the cover.
 The first picture is of our advent calendar that I made two years ago. You can see the blog post about it here. The second day is a picture of us before a much deserved date night :) The missing child is behind the camera and she was thrilled to get to use my camera for the first time!
 Days 3 and 4 were a blur mostly spent cleaning the house in preparation for putting up our trees. One is in our main living area and the smaller is in the girls' bedroom.
 Day 5's activity in the advent calendar was to make these cute little owl ornaments. Day 6 is a picture of my youngest sleeping with Snoopy...he's well loved but only comes out at Christmas :)
 Day 7 is our newest family member with his "wall" decorated for Christmas and day 8 was a picture of our first frost for the winter.
So I'm about 1/3 the way there since I'm only documenting through the 25th in this album. I hope I can get caught up in the next couple of days! All of the materials here are from the December kit at Birds of a Feather.

I'm linking up to The Paper Variety this week...for their anything goes challenge! :)

You are doing such a wonderful job with this. It is hard to stay caught up, but don't stress about that. That's what the week after Christmas is for: catch-up! That photo on Day 6 just melts me! Great post.
