Photo A Day

Happy New Years everyone! Here’s to 2013 – may it be super fantastic and lovely for you all. ๐Ÿ™‚

I’ve still got a couple of 2012 creations to finish writing about, but to start off the new year, here’s the last in the 2012 December Photo A Day challenge….

December 23 – Joy is______

Really, how could I not use a photo of Drake here? He brings me joy, and he’s full of joy (and grins) himself.

December 24 – Tradition/something you always do

My parents gave me this book for Christmas when I was 3 years old. I read it every Christmas Eve (and know most of it by heart). This year, Steve read it to our son (and I) for the first time.

December 25 – Lunchtime

I made my first pavolva! And it turned out ok!!! (Although I’m still slightly scared of making them, even after this one success.)

December 26 – Mess

Some of yesterday’s wrapping paper, waiting to be neatly folded and put away for next year. (Another family tradition – saving any wrapping paper that’s still in decent condition for the following year’s gifts.)

December 27 – How you relax

December 30 – Something that made you smile this year

Painted the house yellow, with cream trim and blue doors this year. Colours of summer. Makes me smile when I turn onto our street and see it, it’s so bright and cheerful, even in the middle of winter.

December 31 – Self-portrait

  4. DRAKE IS SO ADORABLE!! That big smile just lit up my day ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Drake is very cute!

    And I just about squealed when you said about Twas the Night Before Christmas. We do the same thing! And I still have the book that was used when I was a child, and I know most of it off by heart too. When you talked about making ornaments for Drake and I mentioned traditions being great, I was thinking about this one as I typed. It’s a great poem, so lyrical and beautiful.
