Archive for December, 2014

T’is the eve of Christmas eve.  The house is clean…for the moment.  Gifts are wrapped.  Guests are on their way.  And my goal is to not have to enter any sort of shopping establishment for the next few days.  That is my hope anyways!!

One of my favourite things to do in getting ready for the holidays, is a little Christmas crafting.  And the kids just like getting dirty…so it’s a win win!  Haha!

Christmas crafting

It is no secret that I have a small obsession with Bath and Bodyworks.  I seriously get lost in that store just smelling all the new scents.  And the holidays is the WORST for me in trying to pick out what I want my house to smell like.  I went in with ONE item on my list; an air freshener.  I knew which one I wanted and everything.  And then…..I spotted something new.   A light up one!!  And it’s oh so cute!!  Plus, smells pretty nice too. Smile

December is the time for those holiday tunes!  I love listening to the old classics…as well as discovering new ones.  This particular song by Echosmith is my absolute FAVOURITE song this season.  If you have not heard it…please do.  It’s awesome! Winking smile

And of course, it would not be Christmas, without our annual Gingerbread house.  This year was especially difficult for me…as I like to sort of “guide” the kids into how it should be done.  Haha!  But I let them go to it all on their own this year.  My favourite was the “icicle of death” that had to go over the front door.  Mimicking one we had above our own door for a few days this winter.

Holiday movies!!  Can’t forget those!!  Although, there are so many good ones, it’s hard to fit them all in!  But one we NEVER miss out on is Merry Christmas Mr. Bean.  It’s still funny EVERY time I watch it.  Every. Single. Time. Smile

And….the Christmas baking.  Which I am not very good at, I admit.  But this year I decided to give the kids the job putting together the cookies and dainties for our various get-togethers.  And it seemed to work.  Everything worked on the first try!  That has NEVER happened.  And the smoke alarm was not set off either!!  Haha!  Smile

Christmas treats

Well…it has been such a wonderful year.  Hope you all have a very Merry Christmas and I hope to see you in 2015! Smile

This family is WAY too adorable!  I’ve been lucky enough to photograph both these kiddies from when they were only a few days old.  (Big sis and lil’ bro)  And it’s always a good time when we get together.  The knitted sweaters were the absolute BEST!!  I just love ‘em!! Open-mouthed smile

The gift of a family portrait is something that is unique, and can be loved by all.  Still time to get in an order for a gift certificate this holiday season.  They can be made up in any denomination you choose.  Contact me for more info: info@k-photo.ca

I just love these girls! (Well, mom and dad are okay too!  Haha!)  Been a while since I’ve seen this bunch.  Look at how much these gals have grown since our last meeting.  Big sis could be a model, I swear.  She was such a little pro…and LOVED to have her photo taken!  Little sis was a bit shy…but had no problem playing around in the leaves.  Just adorable!  Smile

I have seen these “babies” grow since they were only 5 days old.  So much fun to see them again and again; they definitely keep me on my toes.  SO full of energy!!  I have no idea how mom keeps up with them!  But the giggles….man the GIGGLES!!!  One would start and then the other one would get going.  It was infectious!! Open-mouthed smile
