December Journal Album


I was inspired by Ali Edwards you can find her work {Here}
My friend Chris has also made a journal you can find it {here}.



Dec 01.2008
Wise Men still seek Him. (stamp sentiment from Papertrey Ink.)
"Christmas for the past couple of years keeps Meaning less and less to me. This year I am setting out to find the true "Joy" of CHRISTmas."

What I mean by this journal entry is that CHRISTmas for me personally has become a STRESS filled event in these areas...

1)baking
2)gift giving
3)programs
4)decorating
5)family budget

I had totally lost sight of it's true meaning in the process of all the above stress. Last year we never even put up or big tree, and instead of giving gifts to the girls we stayed in a water park hotel and enjoyed the pool. This year it is my goal to find "CHRISTmas" back and celebrate the birth of Christ and to prepare myself for his triumphant return. To relax and enjoy the Season with my Family and make happy memories of the season.
