M and J's Christmas shoot!

M and J are more like my little sister and brother then the two kids I watched
for almost 4 years. They were my test subjects for my first Christmas session 3 years
ago. I have a file folder of pictures of them from over the years and it's pretty amazing
seeing them grow and being able to take their Christmas pictures year after year.

They are such good sports and M really gets excited for it every year, which 
I love. J on the other hand would rather be playing with the boys, but always ends
up having fun. This year we braved the snow and after the shoot got the best 
hot chocolate in town.

Kennedy's First Christmas Pictures!

Last year I can remember wondering when Kennedy would arrive. 
I wasn't due till January 6th, but with babies they come on their own timeline. 
I can remember hoping she would be here in time for Christmas, but she 
didn't she came a week and a day late! So this year is her first Christmas
and I'm excited to share it with her. 

I ran holiday mini sessions so I had the backdrop for her and all the other
kiddies that I got on I love it! I wanted her pictures to be
a little different then all the other kids so I came up with a cute idea to use cookies
for Santa. It was her first time trying a cookie and she definitely has a love for
them. I also found these cute elf diapers at Target and thought of a cute idea
to have her wearing that and eating a candy cane.  She was in love!

Being a stay at home Mom is a roller coaster ride to say the least. Trying to get things
done with an almost 11 month old crawling around and getting into
everything is not easy! Keeping the house clean only to have it become messy
an hour later, some days seems pointless. 

Playtime is one of the things I cherish the most about being a stay at home Mom.
Watching her learn and grow through play is something amazing in itself. 
Chasing her around and hearing that little laugh, I love it!
I love staying home with my little lady bug and wouldn't change it on our worst day!
