christmas bits



merry christmas friends!
we can surely still say this, since christmas isn't quite over yet.
in fact the 12th day of christmas isn't until monday - the day of epiphany.

so while wes and the big kids brave the freezing temperatures sledding and baby girl naps i'm going to snuggle up in my new infinity scarf and slippers, put love actually on in the background
and look back at all the bits from this most joyous season.
a season that was most certainly filled to the brim of sweet things.
 here's a wee look...

it started back in the late fall with my new adventure in photo shoots here at the barn.
so much fun - learned a ton - now pondering where to take it next!

first snowstorms, sledding and snowman fun here at home...
oh and ella wearing her santa hat everywhere!

first christmas in our new home
 
ornament making...
melting crayon bits with the hair dryer to create colorful swirls

 cookie decorating...
jane fit right in this year as our official taste tester.

mailbox full of christmas greetings from friends & family...
and feeling so very honored to have been a part of capturing several of these beautiful families

 planning and hosting events that celebrated the season with colleagues & clients in 
new york, boston, philadelphia and greenwich that looked a bit like this...

gingerbread house making...
we bought the kit but swapped out most of the decoration based on some ideas found in a library book.  shredded wheat and life cereal are our new go-to giving our roofs a very real look!
 

christmas sing at little lambs for this happy boy,
who apparently stands a full head taller than his friends!
 more christmas creating...
our family of five as yarn wrapped christmas trees

christmas eve rejoicing
 

celebrating with family christmas eve, christmas day, 
uncle cory's stay and at grandma & papa's


 new gifts and treasures to
enjoy, read and learn


a merry christmas it is!
from our family to yours may the joy of christmas 
live in your hearts throughout the year!
