Christmas Traditions!

Merry Christmas, all of you!

Are you still hanging in there? And your kids, how are they doing now that the big excitement is over. Mine are doing well, but I sure wish we had some snow, so we could test our new presents, skis and Snow Scoots. You have never heard about Snow Scoots? Check it out here, it looks so much fun. I didn't get my own, but I'm sure one of the kids will let me try. Actually, I'm taking them up in the mountains the day after tomorrow so we can test it! And yes, I'm bringing the camera. You do want to see me hurt bad, dont you? He, he.

The weeks before Christmas was extremely busy at our house, with work taking too much time. It's hard to get the spirit when you have your nose far down in a pile of papers. But we still managed to do some of the things we do for preparations, like the Tree Hunt.

This layout is my entry to the December 15th Challenge at Once Upon A Sketch. Please head over to their blog to see the sketch and the fab work from DT and sponsors!

I discovered too late that the Journaling Criteria was to scrap about Christmas Day traditions, but I like the way this layout turned out, so I give it to you anyway. And as the journaling is so small that you can't read it on screen, I could have lied and said the journaling was: "Christmas day: the smell of a fresh tree we have hunted ourself, makes you realise it's Christmas. A long brunch and just chilling, maybe trying out the new presents, that's our Christmas Day."

But as I don't lie, you get the true journaling...The journaling says "We counted and found out this is the seventh year in a road we gather kids and dogs and go tree hunting with Roger and Therese. You create your own traditions, right?". For the record, we hunt the tree in the woods, not on the mall parking lot *lol*

Kjempefin sied og jeg fikk meg en god latter av den alternative oversettelsen av din journaling. Iblant er det veldig vanskelig å vite hva som står der,det har du helt rett i!
Godt Nytt År till deg fra oss på OUAS!
