I'm getting so excited to do December Daily again this year. My kit from Ali Edwards arrived last week and I have been browsing the internet for inspiration. I love looking through everyone else's albums, so I thought I would share mine as well. Enjoy!

Scroll through the gallery above to view my 2016 album.


I tend to be light on the journalling and heavy on the photos, as you can see in my 2016 album. Hopefully to incorporate more writing in to this year's album!

I loved using the Paislee Press mini kit last year and am doing the same again this year. I also LOVED having a space at the end of my album to store all of the wonderful photo holiday cards I received as well as a few special non-photo ones, too.

building a gingerbread house

my husband and daughter brought a gingerbread house* kit home from the grocery store a few days ago and we had a lot of fun putting it together!

* buy this in your local grocery store vs. online; you don't want a package of broken gingerbread!

decorating a gingerbread house

it's not perfect by any means, but it was a fun activity to get us all in a christmassy mood.

building a gingerbread house is fun for families!

have you ever made a gingerbread house? did you actually eat any of it? let me know in the comments!
