In the tradition of most family photographers, I wanted to get a family photo sorted for Christmas. When time passed for that to be possible this week, I thought, perhaps a last minute shot of just the kids. Nup, I couldn’t manage that either.
Orders were still being collected today – Christmas Eve!
Amongst the work though, I love to do lots of Christmassy (sp?) things with the kids at Christmas. We have our traditions, and always have lots of fun. We also have lots of tired tears and crankiness (please let me know that it’s the same at your place!).
Here are some snippets of what Christmas is looking like at our house on Christmas Eve.
The kids made clove oranges — they smell divine!
The Christmas tree also has some beautiful school-made decorations.
Will made place cards for the table.
And our traditional Christmas cake that we have been making since Jasmine was old enough to put the hazelnuts on top. This is the best fruit cake that has big chunks of chocolate oozing through it. Santa loves it.
And the table is set and ready to go.
I am just so grateful for my beautiful lot in life — thank you for taking the time to stop by. Much love to my family and friends.
Merriest Christmas, Angie xo
