A Note From Mary
Last year, I mistakenly decided that I was feeling festive enough to take on the “Journal Your Christmas” challenge. The album is still not finished. So this year, I am planning to simplify by documenting Christmas in a two-page layout instead! When I looked at the photos from Christmas 2007, I realized that every single photo has my daughter in it. So instead of worrying about how single-minded I was with my camera, I focused on how Christmas has changed since we’ve become parents. It’s a magical thing to introduce Christmas to your children.
