I am scrapping a Christmas in July layout. My DD from 94. Since Santa was not really able to visit every place that he is requested, Rachel's daycare owner stood in for Santa. I loved that Rachel was not afraid to speak to him and gave him a sweet kiss and a big hug. I couldn't believe the little chunk of curls that went down the middle of her forehead that day - So cute.


1st Page Journaling reads: When Santa visited Mother Goose Day Care, Rachel took her turn to tell Santa What she wants for Christmas, and of course she gives him a kiss and a hug!
2nd page journaling:
(top photo) I took the afternoon off so that I too, could visit with Santa for a bit. Rachel was so excited about being able to talk to him. We made certain to dress in Christmas colors for the celebration.
(middle photo) Daniel, Debra's son always helped with daycare after school. He truly loved spending time with all the kids, and Rachel adored hom. We always called him Dangle, as Rachel was unable to pronounce is name correctly.
(Bottom Photo) Rachel Ann, Rachel and Brandon, so happy to see Santa. It was such a special day for all the children with Christmas just days away. We were sad that for some reason, Debra seemed to disappear for a bit, and missed seeing santa herself.
