OK so I fell off the photo-a-day wagon rather quickly. I probably do have photos for every day, but we've been SO busy that I haven't found time to post them! It's a good thing I finished my Christmas shopping early, because I wouldn't have gotten it done! For those of you who know Bob, you'll be as thrilled as me to know that he went home on Monday!
On Sunday we had "Christmas" with the Grant family at our house. Ken made his famous chicken-n-spaghetti (he woo'd me with that dish) and Nana decorated gingerbread cookies with the kids. We all missed papa, but he was with us in spirit, and we had a really nice gathering.
Bob is ok! They successfully got him off the ventilator, out of the drug-induced coma, and even walked him around a little. He is officially OUT OF THE WOODS! This is a long way from the 10% survival chance they were predicting Wednesday night. We are so relieved, and just wanted to let you guys know. Thanks!!
On our drive down to FL today I was able to get a couple of pages done for my album. I'm doing all digi. Here you have the cover and the page for day 1. All elements are from Krystal Hartley's "Angels Among Us" kit.
Ok this photo wasn't taken this day, this month, or even this year, but it's all I've thought about for the last 2 days. This is a photo of Ken, myself, and our good friend Bob, who is right now in a coma after open-heart surgery yesterday that did not go well. We've been friends with Bob and his wife Kyla for many years, he is one of the most generous, gentle, loving men I've ever known. Simply put, he's a giver. If you're the praying kind, put in a good word for Bob and his family.
Over the weekend, Ken got out all our bins of decorations, and he set up the tree while I was out shopping and wrapping. Last night, the kids and I decorated it. As I was digging through bins looking for the garlands, the kids dug around and found these. It's just TOO DARNED CUTE and if I wasn't in the Christmas mood, I can't help but feel it when I see this photo!
My pal Cheri Andrews posted that she's combining Shimelle's "Journal Your Christmas" and Ali Edwards' "Daily December" project. I decided to accept her challenge, and raise it with Jessica Sprague's Photo-A-Day challenge. Today is day 1, I'm getting a last-minute start, but I'm excited about the project!
If you want to join us for the triple-header, post here and let us know, and I'll send you a little holiday-themed RAK.
