December Daily 2015 - The Hanging of the Lights

And so it begins again!  Another December will soon be upon us, and it is my absolute favourite time of the year.  The magic that Christmas brings to the world is always so wonderful.  People are nicer.  The food is tastier.  The parties last longer.  And the scrapbooking goes next level.  (haha)

I am participating in Ali Edwards December Daily project again this year, and am quite excited about it.  I am almost finished last year's album, and will share those finished pages soon.

Although it isn't December yet, today we completed our first task of the holiday season; hanging the outdoor lights.  Lets face it.  This is Ontario.  It is COLD here in December.  So today's balmy 15° was ideal for taking care of this task without freezing our tushies off.  Aiden 'helped' by handing me cord clips and winding the garland around the railing.  He was pretty disappointed that we wouldn't let him hang from one hand off of the roof to attach the light strands, but you first.... ;)

We will do a test lighting tonight to see how they look, but otherwise they remain off until December 1st.  This is also when we will add our little Christmas trees at the base of the stairs, as well as the inflatable Christmas Mickey and Santa Yoda.  The kids love those.  Looking forward to lighting day!!

December Daily® is a December mini-album project devised by Ali Edwards with the simple goal of capturing the spirit of December via one story per day. Read more on her website here.
