December 22 - December 31, 2014 | Week 52+
Christmas is here!
When it comes to the last week of the year, I have just fallen into the plan to just document the rest of the year all in one lump sum using whatever page protectors I need to tell my full story. I no longer follow the "one spread per week" since we have plenty happening with Christmas and there are always more days left in that final "week" of the year. Technically, Week 52 ended on the 28th of the year for me, but I need to have all of 2014 in one book... so it becomes Week 52 plus.
I also continued using Studio Calico's December 2014 Park Avenue Project Life kit and addons. I am not normally a purple person, but I have to say that I have loved the color in the mix for all of my holiday pictures for the month of December.
We kicked off this final week of the year back on the road. This time to my parents house where we continued being sick. That sick bug hit me and Elsie hard. As you can see from Chris' shopping trip, we where fitting it with all we had.
Lucky for us, we all felt better on Christmas Eve. We had plenty of cousin and family time.
Then, it was Christmas morning.
We woke up from a special delivery. Santa found us again at my parents' house.
We spoiled the big kids rotten with iPad minis. It was the one thing that was on their list that they were just itching to get. Santa kept things much more reasonable with a few games, movies, and books.
Then, the full day of activity must have hit us, because then we all started feeling under the weather again. Along with my brother and mom. BLAH!
We typically spend the evening with extended family on Christmas, but since they didn't wanted to be around sickies like us, we spent it at my parents house. Very low-key and lazy. It was actually a nice change of pace, but we missed the rest of the family. The kids especially missed seeing all of their cousins. We did get to spend one last evening together watching movies and playing games, though. ... And yes, I blurred a picture there. I am a good daughter who is being nice to my Mom who wasn't ready for her day by the time we left for our trip back home. She is always a good sport about letting me get that final picture of them with the kids before we head out the door. Love you, Mom!
We got back home where we just sat back and relaxed. I was still feeling that bug. I just couldn't shake it, but I did feel better just in time to celebrate saying goodbye to 2014 and hello to 2015!
This almost brings my 2014 Album to a close. I still have the final closing page to complete and share. I have all the cards in their pocket, I just need the rest of my family to cooperate and fill their card out. Hopefully, I will be able to share that with you soon!
