ADSD Holidays At Home Collab

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

We enjoyed Thanksgiving dinner at my parents house in the Bay Area. This year was a small dinner with just our family, my parents and great grandma. It was really nice to have a small dinner so great grandma could have some quality time with the boys. I must have gained 5 pounds that day alone (and of course a few more the rest of the weekend eating leftovers. LOL!).



Grandpa bought the boys toy planes to shoot in the air for Thanksgiving. These were the old school thin wooden ones kids used to play with years ago. I’m not sure who had the most fun though, the little boys or the big boys.





Saturday we took the boys to Train Time with Santa. I was a little nervous that Logan wouldn’t want to ride the big train but thankfully he was all for it.

The train was an old ‘classic’ train without any new posh amenities, which was great. I am so happy the boys experienced how trains used to be, not what they are now. Though, I didn’t realize how much trains rock while they are traveling, especially going over an old wooden bridge. LOL! The boys of course thought it fun to ‘stand up and ride the waves’ of the rocking train.

Santa came through towards the end and so hubby and I switched seats so Santa could sit with the boys, boy was that a mistake. I have never seen my boys jump and run as fast as they did when Santa sat next to them. LOL! Oh well, so much for that Christmas card opportunity. Guess we’ll just have to try again later.

We sat in the rear coach car, which later turned in to the first car behind the engine, for the 40 minute ride. There were two folk singers who came through signing Christmas carols and then Santa came through with a gift for all the kids. This ride was so well organized and I can’t believe how much the boys enjoyed their first BIG train ride.







This morning I have for you the December ADSD Collab Holidays at Home. The papers for this kit turned out to be huge, seven downloads huge. I really wanted to get that crinkled Christmas wrapping paper look so I used multiple overlays and, also wanting to keep the files small for those on dial-up, I split the papers into seven downloads.

I hope you enjoy this kit and I wish everyone a happy December!

Happy Scrapping!
