JOY-Days 2,3 & 4

Well, I am just about managing to keep up with my JOY, but I don't know how long that will last!
Day 2
We woke up to 15cms of snow this morning! School was cancelled, buses were stopped so we had a bonus SNOW day!

The neighbours had sneaked out in the night to build a giant snowman, just like they did in January. Zoe (my little sis), Paige, the kids and me went up to the rec for some snowball fun.

Day 3
We went to my friends husbands surprise 40th birthday party last night.

A little bit about Yule (as the photos I took of the party were not very good!)

Day 4
Zoe, the kids and me, had breakfast at Spoons today and then went to a free wreath making session in the town.

Then we went to Busy Bee's for the kids to choose their xmas decoration. This is a tradition we do every year. The kids get to buy one tree decoration each and then when they leave home they will have a collection of decorations to use on their own trees.
We then went home and shoved my hubby in the attic to get the xmas tree down and spent the afternoon decorating it.

so jealous of your snow and all the family time you've been enjoying!!! love your album so far - you have inspired me to go for a bit more depth and diversity with the pages in my own.

Was the wreath making good? I looked at doing that. It sounded like fun. Your new pages are lovely. I love the whole page photo. I am inspired to mix my photos up a bit more (I keep unintentionally copying the LO of the page before). xxx
