Our Christmas Tradition is that we stay home and we LOVE it! We love being home as a family for Christmas eve and Christmas day. We have a nice traditional candle light Christmas Eve dinner. Then we open a new family game to play. We read a Christmas story before heading to bed. The next morning bright and early (actually it is usually still very dark) we get up to see what Santa brought. Then we spend the day playing, grazing on yummy appetizer type treats, Christmas candy and leftovers from the night before, and spending time as a family. Congratulations it is the last week of the 52 week photo challenge! I had to play catch up a lot but I am grateful for all the photos I took this year and the memories I made. Stay tuned for a video recap and details on next years challenge!

My favorite decoration has to be the Christmas Tree. I love the lights, the memories that the ornaments hold and the spirit of the season. After we decorate the tree I always take pictures of the kids in front of the tree. This little session is always entertaining! Here are few of my favorites from this year's session.

My amazing and dear friend Cindy had a baby in November. I was able to go up to the hospital and take pictures. I captured this photo of his little hand around her finger. Oh I love this image. I do love baby hands.

I am thankful for music! I love listening to music especially when it is being created by my kids. December was a month of recitals. We had ballet recitals, guitar recitals and piano recitals. It was a joy to hear and see my kids perform and excel.

WOW! What a whirlwind of a month! When it comes to blogging it has been put on a the back burner. All my time these past 6 weeks has been put into taking, editing and putting together print orders for clients. I have posted lots of sneak peeks on my Facebook page so be sure to check it out and if you want to be notified of updates just like my page. That said I had to share this newborn hospital session! I was able to go up to the hospital within the first 24 hours of this handsome little man's life and take pictures capturing those little newborn details. Babies change so fast and they sometimes even lose their newborn look by the time they have their 1 week photo session. For those who don't want a photographer in the delivery room scheduling a hospital session in your recovery room is a great option. To schedule your hospital session just give me call or drop me an email (435.764.3598 ~ email@example.com). Here are a few more favorites from this session.

Oh the shoes that clutter this house! We have a front entry closet and everyone is allowed TWO pairs of shoes in the closet! No one keeps that rule. There are usually two dozen pairs of shoes scattered all over the entry way. It drives me CRAZY!!! They don't stay in the closet either. They are usually scattered all over the entry way so every time the doorbell rings I have to quickly collect and toss shoes into the closet so I can open the door. That also drives me CRAZY!!! SHOES!!!

My kids seriously have the best Aunts and Uncles. As mentioned we hosted Thanksgiving this year for the Norris Family. My kids love Bree, James and their girls. They had a great time playing games, having a nerf/balloon turkey shoot and eating lots of yummy food.

After many reschedulings because of weather, sick kids, difficult schedules and basically life I finally had the opportunity to photograph this gorgeous family! This amazing Dad has his hands full with these spunky group of girls. Each of their personalities are so unique and it was fun to capture not only their personality but also the family as a whole. Enjoy a few ok more like quite a few of my favorites!

Kitchen: My Mom and I traditionally make candy every December. This year we really out did ourselves and the kitchen was sticky from floor to ceiling by the time we were done! We made Pecan Rolls, toffee, turtles, fudge, suckers, peanut brittle, chocolate covered pretzels, and almond joys. It was a long but fun day!
