As I arrived in Indiana on Nov. 24th, I decided that my DD album would start then... I didn't want to leave out the holiday related festivities just because they happened in November. My cover page isn't completed yet. I need to capture a good picture of my three boys to add in the bottom right corner. But otherwise, I love the fun little inserts I made. My favorite is the top right with all of our names.
The first real page documents the night before Thanksgiving fun. The city has a big event where they light all the decorations. The best part is the lighting of Santa and his reindeer. Arthur was in awe of it. The night was chilly but not freezing (a big change from some years). We even ran into my stepmom, sister, brother-in-law, and brother at the courthouse. My favorite embellishment is those glitter snowflakes I bought on a whim at Michael's. They really add to that panel.
Thanksgiving day we watched the parade, had dinner, and went to local hockey game. Just like we always do. It was a nice relazing day. My favorite panel is the pic I caught of Arthur and his Great Grandma Frances. Simple embellishments complete my page.
The last page for today highlights our weekend activities. The twins and I saw Big Hero 6 and we all went to Science Central to see the train exhibit. Arthur especially loved the water table. I wasn't going to use those reindeer in my album, but they seemed just right for the panel with Arthur's reflection. I'm especially loving the washi tape on this page.
