I hope you are all finishing up your holiday preparations and getting ready for that jolly ol’ chubby elf to slide down your chimney! A word of advice: Don’t leave a fire in the fireplace that night… a charred Santa is no bueno.
I don’t know about any of you out there, but I have trouble figuring out presents for the grandmas… they are hard to shop for! And my mother-in-law made matters even worse this year by requesting, “Peace on Earth, Goodwill to Men”. That’s a tall order, even for my vast capabilities.
I decided early this year that a photo album of the kids would be a good idea. Through the year, we take lots of photos, so I thought I would make that their present: a grandkids year-in-review, if you will. And if you do it right, it can cost only a few dollars!
I found some little photo albums at Walmart for $3.00 each.
That’s what I did and then I had all sorts of cutie pictures to include in the albums.
I should mention that these are just regular ol’ pictures… our year-in-review is not always photogenic, but that’s real life around here.
I added the kids Santa picture at the end…
This is week 2 of the Holiday Open House Party and if you missed the previous two weeks, I announced that I am changing things up a little this year.
Instead of having each week be a certain link up, like trees one week, house decor the next, etc., I am just having it be anything Christmas/holiday related can be linked up.
But PLEASE still link up your Christmas decorations and trees and feel free to take us on a home tour of your house!
I love seeing how everyone else decorates!
This will also be one continuous party.
So I will post the party each week but the link up box will still be open from the previous weeks so everyone can see what other ideas have been linked up.
So be sure to come back each week and link up your new ideas or decorations! 🙂
1.) Link up to a specific post not your blog in general.
2.) Your post must be of your Holiday related items!! Decorations, Christmas trees, outdoor lights and decor, tutorials for Christmas crafts, recipes, etc.
This is not where you share general crafts. Catch a Glimpse Party will run tomorrow like usual so I will delete any links that aren’t Holiday related.
3.) Stop and visit a couple links to get new ideas!
4.) HAVE FUN!!!
Share a button on your blog to spread the word about the party and to show you are participating!
