But as it was it was a good day!
The opening of presents was loud, chaotic and heaps of fun for the kids. Caitie got to practice her photography with her NEW camera...
And there weren't enough seats for everyone, but somehow these 3 monkeys managed to claim the best spots in the house!
I TRIED to get a decent photo of the 2 kids in front i=of the pile in the morning. After taking about 10 (and this being the best of the bunch) I gave up. It was just NOT going to happen. Why interrupt Christmas morning with a whole pile of photos?
We went looking at Christmas lights a few days before Christmas. Managed to get a couple of photos of the kids! Not exactly the best lighting conditions! LOL
So as not to overload poor blogger with too many photos (they really should work on the way photo uploading works in blogger - it's REALLY bad), I'll follow this post with our actual Christmas celebrations.
How do you celebrate in the lead-up to Christmas? Do you have any family traditions? Having a young family it's fun watching the traditions gradually develop and it'd be great to have some ideas of what others do...

I love Christmas! It's such a special time of the year. I love how families get together, I love shopping for presents, and I love listening to Christmas carols in the shops. How cool is it that at this time of the year people can sing such loving songs to such a wonderful Saviour and not feel self-conscious about it at all! Even those who don't believe in God still join in this wonderful time.
We've almost finished out Christmas shopping already! So proud of us!! Only one more thing to get, and I'm off to buy it today.
Have a great second week of December, and if I get around to clearing out my scraproom I might even have some scrapping to show some time soon! LOLOLOL

This is the album you can make with the kit. It has over $35 worth of stuff in there and it's selling for only $30 and seeing Tan has the lowest prices of any online store I've found, that's awesome value!
You get the entire collection of Bella Damsel papers, some gorgeous chippie letters (I SO want more of these!), journaling blocks, plenty of flowers, JAC paper, glitter, pearls, ChelleyBean Designs felt (I LOVE these! So cute and such beautiful colours made specially for this kit!), plus the AWESOME album that Tan herself designed!
Go check it out!!! The link for the kit is HERE, but if you want to check out the store as a whole the link is HERE...
I also have a little mini digital scrapbooking freebie to give away. These cute little flowers have been sitting on my computer just WAITING for a play! So finally inspired by a class at Point Shoot Play that I did on the weekend at Warana, I finally got around to doing them. The tips and tricks they taught really did come in handy!
There are 3 flower doodles in gorgeous pastel candy colours for you to go crazy with. Hope you have fun with them!
