December Daily 2023 - Day 25

Each day here on my blog I'll be sharing my foundation pages (the base page I had ready to go before the month), using my 2023 December Documented Mini Book Project Kit and the finished pages along with the supplies I used (linked at the end of each post). 

Day 25 - Christmas Day :)

Oh how I miss Christmas mornings when the boys were little.  The anticipation & the excitement and watching them open their presents - are you with me?!!

Our boys are now of the age where they want big ticket items for Christmas - furniture (Jack) and a ski pass (Sam), which means there's not much wrapped under the tree. 

We always do stockings and that's one of my favorite parts.  And Christmas Eve pajamas - what Nick & Sam are wearing here :)

I did surprise Sam with a bottle L&P - his favorite soda from his trip to New Zealand.  He talked so much about it after coming back from his trip this fall that I thought it would be fun to get him a bottle.  Not an easy - or inexpensive feat!  I ended up ordering it from a grocery store in Australia and having it shipped here. 

The look on his face was priceless - he was so surprised and excited!


On the right page I added a piece of vellum, acrylic numbers and foam stickers. 

Underneath that page a pocket that I tucked in photos & a journaling card from the day & evening.

Here's my original day 25 foundation pages -
