This year I am also participating in 30 Days of Lists - December Edition. I haven't ever done a 30 days of list class, but I figure it might have some good ideas of things to document on the nights when we just don't have much going on. Or I can include those in my Project Life album.
Traditions that have been in other books that I want in this book too:
- Visiting Santa
- Baking/Decorating cookies
- Advent/Countdown Calendar
- Homemade/Painted Ornaments
- Going to Hallmark to get a new ornament
- Looking at Lights
- Wrapping Presents
- Church (a musical performance or other special event)
I've been working on a little bit of a schedule of when we'll do some of these things, since some of them include Anaya and she won't be here for very many days between December 1 and December 25. This year will also be interesting since I am pregnant. I was also pregnant in the 2008 December Daily Album that I made so I might look back at it to see how I included my pregnancy in the book.
For my color scheme, I was leaning towards Green, Red, Light Blue and Silver/Grey, but then I realized that is awfully similar to what I did last year. So we'll see. I was inspired by Ali Edwards' Joy & Light words to use those colors...and I may still.
For some history, here's a post about my 2008-2011 December Daily Albums, and here is a collection of posts about my 2012 Album that I posted as I was working on it throughout the holiday season.
I've also been checking out KC Parent's awesome Kansas City's Christmas Fun Guide to get some new ideas for this year.
