Hello! This blog is where I ramble about motherhood and my ventures into scrapbooking, crafting and photography. We homeschool, and enjoy teaching our boys about God and dabbling with art. :) Thanks for visiting, do stay awhile, and I would love to hear from you! :)

{Thankful Today} 23 & 27 Dec: Celebration, and someone

We are really really thankful for someone special. And that person is the hubby. So we had a little celebration for him the past Sunday, where we went all the way down to Dusseldorf for Japanese food (the hubs loves Asian food). Our favourite sushi place was closed, so we ended up eating Korean food, which turned out to be a happy accident. The food was good, and the owner gave the kids yummy melon popsicles, which we ate inside the car (it was way too cold to eat them outside!).

The hubby's birthday is so close to Christmas, that I sometimes find it challenging to prepare something special for him amidst the craziness leading to Christmas. However, this round, the boys and I managed to pick out a little something on one of our mornings out, and we made him an extra-special card. The outside looks like an ordinary scrappy card...

Flowers and flourish from Zva Creative. Papers and stickers from Echo Park's "This and That" collection.

But the inside contains hand-made items from the boys. Firstly, a birthday card, made by Junior J, which slots into a pocket in the card:

If you're wondering about the ducks, its one of the boys' fav activities with Papa. 

As well as a picture of a "birthday cake" which Junior J drew, which slots into another pocket. We didn't manage to bake a real cake this round since we left for our road trip the day after!


So thankful for simple family celebrations. What about you? What are you thankful for, as 2012 closes?
