Project 366 – Preparing for Christmas

366collagewebresThe final month! Although there are still a large amount of phone photos and days where it was an effort rather than a joy to remember my 366 project, I had a lot more fun with the project this month documenting the countdown to Christmas with a toddler experiencing Christmas excitement for the first time.
