Another 5×5 spread for Day 2. For some reason I struggled with the precise placement of the elements for this layout for a ridiculous amount of time. Time I really should have spent doing something else more productive. Not that documenting the holiday season is unproductive, per se. But it’s images + words and a date stamp. Why I manage to stretch that into a 2 hour tweakfest is beyond me.
Here’s the journaling:
In just three short years this event has become a tradition for our family. Although we are in a small city, the arrival of Santa on an old-fashioned fire engine and the sound of carolers belting their hearts out, Makes me feel like I am living in a small town. A town where you actually know the names of the volunteers who decorate the tree and the regular eat dinner with the man wearing the beard.
Although Daddy wasn’t able to join us this year, we had fun munching mini donuts and seeing the sights at the festival. I laughed when you said, “It’s the same tree as last time.” It shows that you’re becoming aware of the tradition, too. When you are my age, Christmas will mean getting out into your community and spending a night together. And I definitely want that for you.
