My scarp-book for Isabelle & end of 2014

Hello it's Cécile here and as you know one of my sisters (Isabelle) is the Girl Of The Year for 2014! And today is the 31 of December! So it's Isabelle's last day in the spotlight. Unless you watch the movie over and over again :P To celebrate her year with us and being the GOTY I made a scrapbook of pictures from throughout the year so she can remember all the fun times she had :)

This was one of the first photos ever taken of Isabelle. It was at a local park. It's quite funny because she has a bug on her face! (And she doesn't like bugs.) 
This photo was taken later in the year next to one of the last daffodils of Spring! It was also the first picture taken after a break from photography! 
McKenna & Isabelle at the beach even though it was winter!! In New Zealand you can still go to the beach in Winter!  
SELFIE TIME!! This is just such an amazing pic, oh and look Isabelle's photo bombing (Well trying to anyway) this picture can remind her to be quicker when trying to photo bomb! :P

This is such a funny picture but it also reminds me go when Isabelle volunteered to help me put the star on our christmas tree. She is so kind! Even when things may go wrong!

This photo was also one of the first pictures taken with Isabelle she looks so pretty! Luckily this time there is no bug on her face!

Oh Isabelle, trying to become one with nature..

This photo was taken at Easter. She is so kind to that toy elephant!

Hehe he even hides behind her when he's scared of Froggy :)

I hope Isabelle enjoys this scrapbook! Also are you excited for 2015? I sure am. I'm also curious to meet the new GOTY! I hope she gets to come live with us! I asked Isabelle if she as sad about not being the Girl of the Year next year and she said that she didn't mind! It's another girl's time to shine! 
Isabelle is so nice :)

Karen is coming to town!

Hi all it's Josefina here! Oh look we got a letter!  It's from our cousin Karen!

WHAT?!? Today is the 20th!!! I haven't made her a bed or cleared the guest room! Where is she going to sleep?!

"Hi Josefina!" Isabelle walked in. "How are you? I've just been at the beach getting a tan, oh and by the way Cécile and McKenna are just doing some last minute christmas shopping so they won't be back for a while." Isabelle smiled, "you know how Cécile gets with her christmas shopping, she has to find the absolute perfect gift!"
"Isabelle we have to get the house ready! Karen is staying for christmas and she's arriving today!" I wailed. 
"Oh no she's here!" I cried.
"I'll get the door." Isabelle ran to the door, "and Josefina don't panic she won't mind! Besides we have the rest of the day to get the guest room ready."
"You can say that." I mumbled.
"Karen!" Isabelle smiled with joy. "It's so good to see you!"
Karen laughed. "It's fantastic to see you too Isabelle!"
They embraced.
Karen frowned. "Um isabelle I hate to ask but why are you wearing a towel/dress?"
Isabelle giggled. "Well over here it's summer and I was at the beach getting a tan, you should come with me sometime!"
"That would be delightful! I can't wait!"  Karen replied
Karen walked over to me. "Now Josefina why the said face? I though you would be happy to see me."
"Oh Karen I'm really happy to see you but the thing is, I only got your letter today and I haven't had time to prepare a room or anything for you.." I sighed.
Karen let out a hearty laugh, "Josefina I don't mind that you haven't made me a bed or prepared a room! I'm too happy to see you all that I wouldn't be able to sleep!"
I smiled "Oh Karen I'm so glad you understand, also I'm thrilled that you're staying with us for christmas and New Years!"
Isabelle nudged my arm and laughed, "I told you so!"

Decorating the Christmas tree!

"Hi Cecile! What are you doing?" Isabelle walked over to find Cecile standing by a tree half covered in tinsel and baubles.
"I'm decorating the christmas tree!! But I need some more baubles and tinsel." Cecile smiled.
"Can I help you finish it?" Isabelle asked.
"Sure you can! Now lets find some more decorations."

"No need to fear, I have HEAPS of baubles!" McKenna ran over to them.
Cecile laughed: "We weren't afraid but thanks for the baubles. You want to help decorate?"
"Yes please!!"McKenna squealed.
"Can I join in? I found a large amount of tinsel in a box in the attic." Josefina called and she stumbled over to them."It's all over me!!"
Isabelle giggled, "Sure you can! Now lets start decorating!"

"Here's some baubles Isabelle!" McKenna passed a handful of baubles over.
"Thanks McKenna!! This is so much fun." Isabelle said.
"Ok Josefina let me unwrap you there.. Ok we'll wrap the tinsel around the tree while McKenna and Isabelle place the baubles." Cecile said and started circling the tree.

After a frantic half hour of decorating the tree was finally complete.
"It looks wonderful," Cecile gazed in awe, "but isn't there something missing? Oh yes we don't have a star to go on top!" Cecile's face dropped. "We can't have a christmas tree without a star!"
"Maybe this can help!" Josefina produced a hand-made star from behind her back. "I made it at my after school craft group. We can put it on the tree if you'd like." 
Cecile cried out in delight: "Oh thank you Josefina! You are so creative!! This will look perfect on top of our christmas tree!" 

Cecile stood next to the tree and reached as high as she could. But she was to short.
"Oh no I can't reach the top of the tree, I can't put the star on now." Cecile said.
Isabelle rushed over. "I know! Cecile sit on my shoulders and you'll be sure to reach the top!" 

"Umm..OK, but please be careful." Cecile cautiously climbed onto Isabelle's shoulders. "Ok just walk a little bit closer..I'm nearly there.."
"Cecile I'm losing my balance we're gonna fall!!"

"Are you guys ok?"Josefina and Mckenna scurried over.
"Yeah we're ok, but what about the star? Did it make it?" Cecile and Isabelle asked.

"WOOHOO! It made it! Now our christmas tree is complete! That was one hectic tree decorating!" Cecile cheered
Thanks guys for helping me finish the tree! It's been very fun and exciting! Also it's nearly christmas :D
Happy holidays :)
