Christmas Journal 2007: #2

by Wendy Copley on December 17, 2007

A few updates to my Christmas journal. I’m not doing a very good job keeping up to date with it, but I’m having fun with the pages that I’m doing.

This one is for prompt #8:

Journal Your Christmas 2007 #8: Sights of Christmas

I feel pretty dumb about the way I spelled “Sights” in the title. I didn’t notice until I’d finished the page, photographed it, uploaded it to Flick and it had been sitting around for awhile. I’m so used to writing the word “sites” because I work on web sites all day, that that’s my reflexive spelling now I guess. I also forgot to put my cute little number tag on it. Dang.

This is what the journaling says:

Apparently, our house turns red at Christmas:

  • Bell wreath on the inside of our door
  • red stockings
  • the little tree on the mantle
  • cute, festive husband
  • Wyatt in red from head to toe (but what else is new?)
  • red berry wreath on the front door
  • Christmas gifts in pregress
  • gingerbread house
  • Christmas books up from the basement
  • our lone card from the gardeners

This one is for prompt #9, Traditions:

Journal Your Christmas 2007 #9: Traditions

Journaling reads:

  • getting together with Zach’s family before leaving for Iowa to exchange gifts and share a meal
  • traveling to Iowa for the holiday
  • white chili on Christmas Eve
  • opening stockings first thing Christmas morning (when I was a kid and even now as an adult)
  • one big present from Santa under the tree
  • Christmas Eve get-together at Mom and Dad’s with any extended family who are in town
  • setting up the tree with Wyatt while Christmas music plays
  • one big weekend of holiday cookie baking
  • cookies for Santa, corn for his reindeer
