December Daily 2013 ~ December 8 and 9

Did you have a great Christmas? Ours wasn't bad at all, Clare and Dolce are home and it is Papi's first Christmas, the highlight of the night is to see Papi opening his christmas present, lots of fun!!!!
I'll tell you more when I have my December Daily project for Christmas day, for now, it is...

December Daily 2013

December 8 and 9

The album I used for December Daily comes with a few plastic sleeves, I thought I could used these for pages that has no bulky items

I decided to combined December 8 and 9 into one page.

I remember on....

December 8, I woke up in the morning and got bad news from Dolce, she was doing her abroad study overseas, she and her friend Mei went to a fair and less than 5 minutes they were there, she noticed she was pick-pocketed, she lost her school ID, driver's license and cash of course, *sigh..... no matter how much you reminded them, they still tends to be careless, we talked to her about the professional pick pockets and gypsies in Paris, reminded her again and again to keep an eye on her belongings, she still lose it, oh well, I am glad she still have her passport with her, other wise it could be worst.

So, I had a bad start and you can pretty much guess what is the rest of the day was like on December 8.

I leave a lot of journaling space for December 8 since I have a lot to write about for that day.

and then on.....

Monday, December 9, I remember I was feeling better for the first time since I started my December Daily project, because I keep notes for the December Daily project, it makes me more aware of how I feel on a daily basis.

Although I was feeling better that day, somehow I still crave for cupcake, and I did baked myself.

I found the cupcake holder belongs to the girls, I remember those NYC days, I used to packed their lunches and bake cupcakes for them to bring to school.... ahhh... I love those days.

and it is a good feeling digging into the cupcake as well, YUM!

I am sharing this at

Hello Kirsty,

I'm so sorry to hear about your daughter, how awful. Wish we could be by them always to watch over them. Glad she has her passport to come home with!

WOW, I've never seen a cupcake holder, how cute! Glad you could find a little happiness in something yummy, some days that's what we need.
Thanks so much for your visits, always nice to see you.
Hope your weekend is good and that you are ready for a new year!

Sorry your daughter was pick pocketed. The world can be a tricky place to navigate at times, not everyone is kind or honest. Glad the passport was not in play.

your cupcake holder page is fantastic

So sad about the pick pocket, Kirsty! It could have happened here. One summer when we were home from Indonesia to visit my parents, the apartment my dad got us was broken into and my jewelry, passports for me and the four kids were stolen. At least were were in Texas and could go and get passports in Houston! but the trauma of losing everything was really unsettling, especially since we were in the states. You are a target any day of the week, anywhere! Love your journal page and again you make me hungry with the yummy cupcake!
