So far so good and here I am sharing here my day 5 of December Daily. I’m finding this year that I am moving away from “planned stories” a bit and going with whatever happens, as it happens. Today Sam the Elf left. Not only did he leave, he took all advent calendars with him. Yep sounds mean no doubt but when your kids start to “expect” things and don’t appreciate what you do for them and then you ask them to do something and they outright don’t well, you gotta do something. When all words fail you’re left with actions. This is the first time ever we have done anything like that but I just had to. So the next morning when the kids woke up and could not find Sam or their Advent Calendars they only had a note he left. And that is the story of my Day 5.Just a simple 4 pocket page and Mackenzie at the tree reading Sam’s notes, pondering and contemplating. The journal card is a digital layered template I purchased from Ali Edwards. I then took a blue piece of card and covered it with the spotted washi tape that came in the main December Daily kit.At the top I created a small tag (also using the same matching washi tape) and on the tag is the letter that Sam left for the kids.
You may be wondering why the words on the tag are all blurred. That’s because that part of the story is between Sam, Santa and my kids. 😉
