Project 366: December

Before we get too far into 2013, here's the end of 2012!

1st: The Doctor's birthday, and The Tomboy made his cake under my direction!
2nd: Toy Service at church (we donate toys for local children who might not otherwise get any Christmas gifts at all)
3rd: Worked on some assignments for my TA course
4th: Cold, dark, rainy day!
5th: Made a special pop-out carousel card with my papercrafts class
6th: Back in real shoes!!
7th: The Boy turned 13
8th: The Boy's friends came round for a sleepover party, and agreed to pose for me - as long as their faces were hidden...
9th: The Father came to visit, bringing The Boy's birthday gift with him
10th: Made some decoupage Christmas cards
11th: Hereford took Cheltenham to a replay in the FA Cup! (And lost it, sadly...)
12th: We had snow!! In an extremely localised snow shower - just a mile in either direction they hadn't had any snow at all...
13th: Look, no crutches! In the house, at least, though I still had them for when I ventured outside :)
14th: Made origami Santas with the Connect group
15th: We put the Christmas decorations up
16th: I made dozens of mince pies!
17th: Imagine photo here! The Tomboy had had the idea to produce a school newspaper. She met the Headteacher to discuss it, put together a team, commissioned articles, wrote many of them herself, typed it all up, took it to the Head for approval, printed it and sold it round school!
18th: Lots of gift wrapping completed
19th: We hosted the House Group Christmas social
20th: Imagine photo here! End of term Christmas service, led by The Tomboy's class
21st: There weren't any delivery slots left at Asda, so I had to go to the store, with the help of The Doctor, The Tomboy and a mobility scooter!
22nd: Family trip to the cinema, to see The Hobbit (pretty good, if rather long, but I'm reserving judgement till I've seen all 3 of the trilogy)
23rd: Made a start on the trifle
24th: All set for the big day!
25th: I got some lovely gifts :)
26th: We played the new Lego Hobbit board game
27th: I had lots of fun playing my new Lego Lord of the Rings Wii game!
28th: The Doctor drove us to visit his parents
29th: We went out for a family meal with The Parents-In-Law and The Sister-In-Law and her family
30th: A lovely lazy day with the Sunday papers
31st: A quiet New Year's Eve in with a curry in front of the TV :)

(The Doctor's birthday cake is a repeat photo to fill the gap! After all, you can't have too much chocolate cake...)

A busy old month....and a very resourceful 'journalist' Tomboy!

That Tomboy is going to go places with such initiative and skills! And how nice to be able to wear your own shoes again :). I love your photo montages and the brief descriptions underneath - always intriguing to get a flavour of your month :).

I do look forward to these photo collages. That cake looks amazing! Hope the TA course is going well? When will it be completed?

Those origami Santas are adorable! Yay for The Tomboy and I love the boys covering their faces lol

It was a very busy month! I love the photo of the red berries, and the self-portrait as well. So glad you're back in your shoes and on your feet. That was quite the ordeal.

Mayhem got the LOTR Lego Wii game as well. Love the Santas!

A good December for you Mel. Are you doing 365 again? I wasn't going to but then I found that I am so in the habit, I am doing it without realising it! I need a good way to 'do something with them' for 2013

Yeah! Your back in your shoes!! Looks and sounds like a very busy month. Great going for the Tomboy coming up with the idea of a paper and getting it done.
