Hello beautiful blog readers and happy December to you! It’s hard to believe that the holiday season is well underway. It just crept up this year, didn’t it?! I try not to be, but I am a last minute kind of chick. Last weekend, I had Max’s Christmas card photos taken. Let me preface this by saying that Max comes from a long line of Christmas lovers. No lie, my mom has a “Days til Christmas Countdown” that begins December 26th. She is Mrs. Claus. When I was little, I used to turn my bedroom into a gift wrapping service station for my family members. So you could understand my confusion when Max refused to smile for the 45 minute Christmas card shoot as the photographer snapped her camera. He actually was scowling. Look at this picture I took behind the scenes.
It’s kind of hilarious, unless you’re the one paying for the angry photos. This lady must have a magic camera because the final photos came out great! Here are some of my favorites…
So all in all, the photos went better than I thought. We also chopped down the tree. With a saw. Max was trying to man up and take the saw to “chop down du twee”. I was not as excited about that idea. Ah classic family photos…
Max loves tools. However, he is only allowed to play with toy tools. I know, I’m a mean mama. The good news is, he was allowed to participate in decorating. What is it about Christmas lights?
Max is amazed by our tree at night. We have been having picnics in front of the it every night after dinner.
He loves holiday baking (and cookie sampling) as much as me!
Have you decorated yet? Real tree or fake tree? Tell me all about your holiday season kick off 🙂
