I have to admit, I’ve had blogger’s block. I wanted to share how we spent our Christmas, but I spent my day with my dearest friend who blogged about it already herself! You MUST read her post. I was in awe of her creativity and the way in which she captured almost all of the memorable moments of our day. I say ‘almost’ because after I went through my pictures from that day, I realized she may have missed a few candid moments.
Before I continue, you need to read her post. Go. Read it. Now! Click Here-You better obey!
Wasn’t that the cutest blog post ever? I will never forget Christmas of 2011 and so I blog to make sure the memories are captured forever!
I have to mention that over the Christmas break my fabulous small group girls from youth group had a sleepover.
We did the typical sleepover activities…eat 3 days worth of our recommended caloric intake, play truth or dare, (one of the girls may have dunked her head in a toilet) play Dance Revolution, (I still got it…killed every one of them!) played a round of Catch Phrase, (BEST game!) got my hair french braided, wore a face mask and didn’t get more than 3 hours sleep! Love those girls.
Phil has been building the sets for our stage at church lately. The Christmas set needed to be in the style of ‘Whoville’ from the movie, How the Grinch Stole Christmas for our ‘Whosoever’ series.
And my usual, capturing moments of adorable kiddos like this…
Which brings us to Christmas Day. I know it’s January and you are so over red and green. But bare with me, this is my journal and I can’t move to the present until I document the past. Even if I’m a month late in doing so.
Thank you for your understanding.
As you read in Lauren’s blog at Happily Mother After, we spent Christmas day with her family-I also refer to them as my family. I have known Lauren since we were 2 years old. She’s the only friend I’ve known my whole life! I moved a TON between Ontario, Canada and Merritt Island, Florida growing up, but we always reconnected as if there had been no time apart. I love her like a sister and I am so grateful to live so close to her now and to spend special holidays together!
It’s only fitting to take you back to our early modeling days…
Here is our day Christmas from my lens…
