Annual Tradition

Wow! I cannot believe that it has been 10 days since I last blogged.  This is such a busy time of year with shopping, decorating, Christmas cards, etc.  Add to all of that, we have been extremely busy at work with all the storm damage from Hurricane Matthew (I work for a roofing supply company) so many nights my hubby and I (we work together) come home so exhausted we don't even have the energy to eat dinner.  Luckily we have gotten some extra help at work this week so tonight I actually wandered into my scraproom and worked on this page. It came together quite quickly once I got started. The photo is from last weekend when my son and grandsons went to a Christmas tree farm in Indiana and cut down their own tree. They do this every year and I seriously have scrapped every year that they took a picture....I have at least 10 pages documenting this annual tradition. Our 15 year old Jacob actually agreed to get in the picture this it!

I am entering this page in Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge -- Christmas
Scrap Our Stash Book Inspired Challenge

I was inspired by the masculine Christmas theme, I used big bold striped paper and some of by wood-look enamel dots that I have been hoarding at least 2-3 years.

Well all of a sudden I have been very sleepy so I better hit the sheets to prepare for another 10 hour day selling roofing.  Join me this weekend as I hope to share the last few of my Christmas cards for this year.

This year it was bittersweet, as my oldest son now has his own apartment, and got his own tree. I am so proud of him becoming an independent adult, but I missed him joining us too!
