New year, new project
Gwen's birthday giveaway last year I was introduced to Smash books and they are AWESOME. You can check them out at Target and Michael's, along with all the fun stuff they have to go along with them. They were the inspiration for these books - journals that my husband was kind enough to help me put together with xerox paper and scrap-booking paper covers. He made small blank calendars that we glued in the front of each book, one for each month of the the year. You need a long arm stapler to make this project easier - if you have little people at home it's totally worth the purchase price to be able to make blank books anytime.
Oh and when we woke up on the 26th and she said "when is Santa coming again" and we explained not until next December, she just shrugged and said she's start Santa again. And she did, right back at day one. I have a feeling we are going to have a LOT more explaining to do on January 25th.
