25 Days Until Christmas - Days 19 - 22

I have more pages in my 25 Days Until Christmas book to show you! I really love working on this book! I've kept up with the pages, and I'm loving how this is all coming together!

Day 19 was the day that I FINALLY got some gifts wrapped!

Day 20 shows all of our mini stockings hanging from the tree skirt. Princess didn't have a mini stocking, and Jessica got one in school, so she added Princess' name, and Princess now has one too!

Day 21 features another photo of Princess. I was throwing her soccer ball toy, and she was having so much fun and getting snow all over her face! I just had to snap a photo! I just love her! I also took a photo of a Santa decoration that is on our mantle. I just love that Santa!

Day 22 features our Target bags from our Secret Santa shopping. The four of us draw names, and we spend ONLY $20. The person who gets closest to spending $20 WITHOUT going over is definitely cheered on and admired by all of us! This year Emily got the closest to $20! The Secret Santa shopping is really a lot of fun. We are all in Target at the same time trying to keep our presents a secret! Love it!

I hope you are having a wonderful Christmas Eve day! We've done a bunch of baking, and we'll be going to my brother's house tonight to celebrate Christmas Eve! Have a wonderful time with whatever you are doing to celebrate! Thanks for stopping by!

Great pages, Carol! Loving the stocking for Princess. Charlie has one that is paw shaped. I feel bad because I think he gave me more presents than I gave him! LOL!

I LOVE these pages, Carol. I had to smile when I read about the "Secret Santa" shopping -- we used to do that in our family and Target was a great place to get lots and lots of "littles" for the person we drew! It brought back a wonderful memory for me....thank you!

Happy 2010 -- I hope it is the best year yet for you and your family!
