Becky Beck- November - Scrapbooks

My project for November was to complete my kids scrapbooks for the year.
Every Christmas my kids get 3 gifts similar to the gifts of the Magi--something fun, something needful, and something meaningful.
The scrapbooks are the meaningful gift.
I make each of the kids a digital scrapbook and although they are never surprised when they open them, they love this gift and look through their entire book as soon as they open it.
This was the first goal this year I did not complete within the month.  I was working on them right up until almost midnight the night of Dec 10th (the 10th is my day to post, does anyone even post on their day anymore? :) haha.  I finished what I needed to for my kids AND did 2 additional scrapbooks.
One of the extras is for my Grandpa Moon with pictures of all the fun projects that were completed this past summer on his ranch.  
Here are a few pictures...

My December project is well on its way.
It was originally going to be doing the 12 days of Christmas for a family but then I got put over the Angel Tree in our ward and we are helping several families so I switched to that and am involving my kids.

These projects look neat -- I remember the awesome barn painting. I'd love to learn more about what program you use, could you tell me? I like your December focus, and good news: I learned just yesterday that the 12 days of Christmas are actually AFTER Christmas. :)
P.S. We must be twin sticklers about our post dates.

Hi Jennifer! I use Snapfish. I think there are better companies to use but I've been uploading my pictures to Snapfish for so many years that it's just easier to stay with them because I have access to all my pictures. I know some people like Shutterfly. I get really good deals with Snapfish. I usually get a 20 page standard custom cover book for $16. That is good news about the 12 days being after Christmas :)

What a cute idea. I'm sure they will really treasure these books.
