December 2014 was a month of mild weather and much time spent outdoors. The highlight of the month was, of course, Christmas. Our holiday captures are of onesie pajamas, homemade knitted touques, visiting Santa, silliness, and sweet treats. Traditions done and memories made.
In December 2014 we played in the snow, took a holiday train ride, and toured the ice sculptures. We actually did a lot of festive activities this Christmas, it filled the time during the long school break!
Obviously much of the month was preparing for the holidays. As I mentioned in a previous post, we hosted both Christmas Eve and Christmas Day dinner. So, a lot of the month was spent in the kitchen, shopping for the holidays, or in front of the fire watching movies after a long day of the mentioned.
Yet, we also took an out-of-town trip for Isabelle’s first Cheerleading Competition of the season – with many more to come in 2015.
My December 2014 ended with a literal ‘out with the old’, as I came down with the flu and spent the last 3 days of the year quarantined in my room. I was too nauseated to move very much, so binge watching a ton of Netflix was in order. My birthday is on December 31, so needless to say, it went down as the worst birthday ever. Sure, it was disappointing to not celebrate New Years Eve and by birthday in the usual way. Yet, harder than that was being stuck in my room, and listening to the girls outside my door saying Happy Birthday in sad little voices. They wanted so much to give their Mom a Happy Birthday Hug. Ugh, such a crappy feeling.
On the bright side, we did a new years/birthday re-do a couple days later, and it was awesome. Plus, I spent the last part of the year recharging and resting. I felt much better on the morning on January 1st, and it was like the gun fired at the starting line. Bring it on, 2015!
How was your December 2014?
If you haven’t tried Month in Photos yet, you need to give it a try!
Simply gather your best of the month, for a collage. By years end you’ll have a year in photos, one page per month, for an album.
I started making these in late 2013, so now I have a full calendar year of Month In Photos. I’ll be making my 2014 Month In Photos Book soon, I’ll be sure to update on the final look!
