December 14

I delivered several gifts to friends at the library; there was a beautiful display of nativities in the library foyer. I had lunch with Rebecca at La Finca Chiquita while Robbie did a little Christmas shopping. This afternoon we went to see The Chronicles of Narnia: Voyage of the Dawn Treader movie in 3-D. (Last week I won the prize drawing at our book club meeting - a $25 gift card to Cinemax - which made this outing all the better!) This evening we ordered a cheese bites crust pizza and watched Frosty the Snowman. While I was crafting, Robbie brought me in a festive treat of hot chocolate and 3 little holiday cookies.

I saw this sketch by Liz Qualman late Monday evening on the My Little Sketch Blook blog and instantly knew which photos I wanted to use to create a layout.

I immediately printed a copy of the sketch and pulled out my photos and papers and was just thumbing through some embellishments when Robbie mentioned that it was after midnight! Alas, I had to wait until Tuesday evening to put it all together. I couldn't decide on a title - I love these photos because we were being silly and having fun, so I just decided to call it silly fun.
