Christmas Journalling

It's been a whole month since the Christmas blog hop and my challenge to you.  Sorry about that.  Since then, we had Christmas, two visits from family and a few projects that I wanted to get done.  However, I've finally completed the LO to go along with my journalling.  Here it is:

And here's my challenge to you...

If you took me up on my blog hop challenge of writing down some of your favourite things about Christmas, make a layout based on that journalling.  If you didn't, here's the post I made.

Make a layout based on your favourite things about Christmas and make the journalling the driving force behind the layout.  Post it here by next Monday, January 31st and you'll be entered to win a small RAK. :D

Quite the kid

Aidan continues to keep us laughing with what comes out of his mouth.

Yesterday, he was singing "Jingle Bells" (both kids love that song!).  Then, he decided to change it up a bit.  "Twinkle Bells, Twinkle Bells, Twinkle all the way!"

This morning, Der made up a song for the kids.  He was doing a little rap and Aidan told him, "Don't do dat again!"

Our First Visitors

Our first visitors in Jamaica have arrived!  On Wednesday, we drove up to Ocho Rios and Der dropped the kids and I off at our villa while he drove to Montego Bay to pick up Ian, Rhonda, Brody and Hannah.  He was gone for several hours (the drive there and back and waiting for them to get through all the airport stuff) and the kids were dying while waiting.  They were so anxious for RIBH to arrive!  I tried to keep them occupied and they did pretty well until about 5:00 - then they just kept asking, "Where are they?"  Too cute!  It was a very happy moment when they drove up and the kids got to see their cousins and auntie and uncle again.  :D

We stayed at Lansdowne, a private villa in the hills near Ocho Rios.  It is beautiful!  The house is fabulous, the grounds are gorgeous and it's away from the hustle and bustle of the town.  We met Arlene, the housekeeper who took care of us during our stay.  She's so sweet and friendly and she helped us out with whatever we need…

His uncles would be so proud

Tonight we took Brody, Hannah, Ian and Rhonda shopping so we stopped by Wendy's for supper.  Aidan, at 2 1/2, put down 14 chicken nuggets, half an order of large fries and 2/3 of a kid's size chocolate Frosty.  I cannot believe that he ate that much!!!!!  His uncles would be so proud of him.  :D
