{Here Comes Santa Claus}

Just 12 more days! Carson is sure the Santa Claus we saw at the mall was the real Santa Claus because his beard is real! I am so happy to have three little Believers in the house. We have 3 advent calendars going, lots of activities left to do, many gifts to buy and wrap...busy, but loving this time of year. And we hope you are too!
(Please know that it practically killed my Type A personality to let the kids get their pictures taken in these outfits...we came straight from Carson's basketball game, hence the shorts on a freezing afternoon, and Addy insisted on doing (aka not doing) her own hair. I decided not to pick this battle and just enjoy Santa anyway...and it was worth it, just a little twinge of "oh I should have had them in their fancy Christmas church clothes"...sigh).

Way to let things go! You're kids are cute even without being primped! Santa rocks.

P.S. Carson's shoe looks crazy huge in that picture!

They still look cute though... it just makes for a more realistic picture of day to day life! (Although if it were me I would feel the same way about Beckett!:) I'm happy that you have a house full of believers.. merry Christmas!

Why I {Blog}

My little blog is a family journal. I include things on here I want to remember years and years from now. So when I post a zillion is because I want to have it for my posterity. So please forgive the often posted-picture overload.

Currently I am trying to focus on my photography skills...reading, reading, reading, and taking pictures when I can. Then edit, read, read, read some more. I finally feel like I have a basic understanding of exposure...hooray! I updated my blog template so I can display larger photos because...aren't pictures better than anything I have to say anyway?

More about me here.
