Photo-A-Day Challenge: December 22-28

December 22: Heritage
Traditional German Stollen...
few things are better than food that connects me to family that I love and miss so much.

December 23: The Santa Wand
I wanted to make a Christmas craft with Will, and his request was a "Santa Wand." I have no idea what that is, but apparently everyone with magic needs a wand, so we got creative. :)

December 24: Christmas Eve 

December 25: Christmas!

December 26: Making Music

December 27: Snuggle Bug

December 28: Christmas Wish
Will's only request for Christmas for MONTHS has been that he wanted a car transporter. And, he is in love with it. Hooray for simple joys.

Photo-A-Day Challenge: December 15-21

December 15: Sledding Adventures

December 16: My Love
So, this picture was not taken on this December 16th, but it was taken on a December 16th...
five years ago. I'm so grateful for good wedding photos and I love looking back at our album and remembering the bliss of the day, and how much we have grown together since then. 

Also, that day, I went to Will's school because Santa came to visit. Aren't Santa pictures the best? Or something like that. :)

 December 17: Making Memories
This is our newest Christmas ornament. We bought it in Hanover, NH on our trip this fall. It depicts the sugar maples with their sap buckets. We try to collect ornaments on all our travels so that as we decorate the tree each year we can remember all the fun adventures we've gone on together.

December 18-19...Oops. I think I'm losing steam on this project, guys.

December 20: Christmas Sunday
Sometimes you get a good shot of your children in their Christmas Sunday best...and sometimes you laugh at the beautiful realities (as a friend of mine calls them) of life instead.

December 21: Fun with Aunt Robyn
I'm so glad my sister lives close and that she chose to spend a large chunk of her day playing with my boys and me. :)

Photo-A-Day Challenge: December 8-14

So, this week I may have failed at actually taking a picture every day, but I did end up with several pictures. I kind of missed Tuesday through Friday. Oops. 

December 12: Ski Date
Once or twice a year, Graham gets ski passes through his company. We had a great afternoon up at Alta. I'm still such a beginner, but I managed to stay upright most of the day, and I eve tried a few blue runs. :)

December 13: C is for Cookie Monster

December 14: Winter Wonderland
It's a good thing I have kids to help me enjoy the snow...and a husband to shovel the driveway. :)

Photo-A-Day Challenge: Tis the Season!

We're gearing up for Christmas around here, and I'm loving it!

November 30: You Can't Catch Me!
Our "Mommy School" theme last week was gingerbread. Will decorated this little guy ALL by himself. Can you tell? :)

December 1: Work in Progress
Our giant cardboard gingerbread house before decorating.

December 2: Granola Bites
I've been experimenting with food photography for another project I've been working on (because I need more projects, right?). These little guys are one of our favorite snack foods around here.

December 3: Gingerbread Cookies
This project almost cost my sanity, but they turned out cute in the end. :)

December 4: Twinkle, Twinkle
This is my second favorite photo from the week. After getting a smiling shot, I told him to just play with the lights. What does he do? Shove them in his eyes. Of course. Why didn't I think of that?

December 5: Wonder

December 6: O Christmas Tree

December 7: Let's Decorate!
