Do you have that one area of your home that when things get hectic, it gets neglected? No? Well, I do. For me, in my business, that’s my blog. I always intend to keep 2 posts a week up here. And well, that just flat out hasn’t happened lately. I was very blessed with a busy fall full of beautiful newborns and families. Then in early December, we found out we are expecting baby #3! I’m due in mid-August (in Florida, I know. Send ice and air conditioning). I am a person that gets hit HARD by morning sickness, so it’s been survival of the fittest here for a while.
I have a great photographer friend, Kimberly Svenson, of Fanciful Photography. We’ve met up the last 2 years to do a short session swap with our families. Our husbands wrangle our kids while we shoot the other’s photos for Christmas cards. There are a few photos in this mix that are taken by her (the ones with me in them, for instance). I’m so grateful!
Up first is a couple photos from our annual trip on the day after Thanksgiving to pick out our Christmas tree. I started when Carter was about 14 months old with the “wear the Christmas shirt and mom runs ragged trying to snap a few pics”. This year was no exception because Bodie is FAST and (like most almost 2 year olds) is a wee bit less than cooperative for photos.
Here are some other photos of us and the kids! I have a few outtakes as well, but I’ll save those for another post. This post is pic heavy enough as it is.
