Journal Your Christmas - week 2

In which I am even farther behind than I had been.

Today is of course Day 13. I have done layouts this week for days 5, 6 & 8.  I had every intention of getting 9 & 10 done Thursday and Friday evenings but was felled by the head cold from hell. You know the one. It's where you are fairly certain your cheekbones & nose are about to explode right off your face because of the pressure behind them. Add to that chest congestion, which has settled into a nasty cough, and a mysterious pain in my side where my appendix would be if I still had an appendix and you end up with me spending 36 hours miserably in bed.

Today I just have the cough & side pain so I am up and scrapping while I can. The boys have occupied themselves outside 'trimming bushes Mama' so I have some peace & quiet. Now you may be wondering why I am not more concerned that my 4 & 6 year old are wandering outside unsupervised doing god knows what to god knows which plants used god knows what sharp objects.

Did I mention I have some peace & quiet?

There are no bushes out there I care that much about and the sharp cutting implements are locked in the shed. They bring a wagon load of branches up the hill every so often & the branches look to be snapped off. It appears they are in the copse of weedy tree bushes the electric company feels compelled to butcher every year for fear of them growing up into the power lines. So no harm done there.

Here are the 3 layouts I have done this week. I'm going to try & get 10 & 11 done today. 7 is going to have to wait & be swapped out with the 18th and I haven't decided what tradition to use on 9, since we don't have many except decorating the tree and the tree already gets it's own day.

I think everything in these layouts are from Sweet Shoppe Designs

Head colds really are no good. But those pages look awesome. I'm hoping that once we complete our crazy house remodels I can actually scrapbook again!
