Wow, what a season! As this year comes to an end and we celebrate such a joyous time - I can sit back and reflect. This season certainty did not go the way I had hoped. From, sickness after sickness spreading in my family to a broken (and expensive) heater. It was been very draining - both physically and financially. But finally on Christmas Eve, I am happy to say everyone is well (relatively speaking). We didn't get to send out Holiday Cards this year with all the sicknesses and chaos, I think I had to reschedule like 5 times! But, we are finally well enough to make Christmas cookies and I took it as an opportunity to take true lifestyle portraits. A glimpse inside our family, from messy hair to mismatched clothes to tights over leggings. This is the kids in their element.
