december daily-- D1

i started december daily last year, both on our blog & in an album.
the way it is SUPPOSED to work is the album is made  out of what you have on hand.
for example last year i used cardboard for cover/back, paint, metal rings, and cardstock i already had.
 also it is *supposed* to be made before december ... you just add a picture a day of something special or just a part of your day & journal it.
easy peasy, no stress during a hectic christmas month.
didn't happen this year.
sad face.

so, i will be trying to make our album & be a bit behind.
or a lot.
we shall see.
but i LOVED ours last year, and it is such a great way to remember little and big things.


here are our pictures & journal for today--

"king of kings"

i know, blurry.... but so cute...

day 1 masterpeice
25 names of Jesus

i saw this post/idea & immediately loved it.
the short description is each day we read one verse in the bible with a name Jesus is called by.
then addox decorates an ornament & i write the name we learned about on that ornament.
we did it tonight & he LOVED it. 

want to do it with us?

"These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him [are] called, and chosen, and faithful.

our "name" was king of kings, and the bolded part was what we really concentrated on. 
it was already pretty simplified, but i simplified it a couple different ways anyway, and addox grabbed right on. 
a wonderful way to explore the bible & easy project.
(and cheap project! i bought 3 packages of plastic ornaments from walmart, $.99 a box.)
there is even the list you can go by (we are!) w/ coordinating verse, and site for the verses if you don't want to pull our your bible.

  go here to do it with your family!

p.s. did anyone notice how my pictures do NOT have a yellow tint in them anymore? why, you ask? WELLLLL i figured out how to switch my indoor pics to a manual white balance. FINALLY! thanks to THIS post! you have no idea how much this makes me happy. i've literally cried over this issue, my family does not have jaundice and i was tired of us looking like we did!

ok. that is all.
happy friday!
