Well, it’s the day of the eve before Christmas eve.  That’s an important day, right?  I’m happy that I actually began getting prepared for Christmas a little earlier this year and not just SAY I was going to.  Just a few last minute things to do now…so it’s nice not to feel the pressure this time of year can sometimes bring.  I hope you all are able to enjoy this beautiful snow we are receiving right now.  It’s picture perfect!

Just for fun, I thought I would share some favourites of mine this time of year.  (Before I’m forced to get into the kitchen and get ready for tomorrow!)  Winking smile

Snowy trees

And why not begin with this beautiful snowy Christmas we are having in Ottawa!  I find this is rare to have pretty white snow like this.  It’s usually slop on the ground from it being so mild.  But this I love!  I’ve been joking with my daughter all week, asking her “who shook the snow globe?”  And so she runs and grabs her snow globe and shakes it up some more.  And would you know it…it would start snowing harder!  She thought she was actually controlling the snow!  It was so funny!

Christmas music

And of course, you MUST have good Christmas music!  I find we always listen to the same favourites around here.  The kids LOVE the Barenaked Ladies Christmas album.  But this is a new one I discovered this year, and I LOVE it.  If you recognize that gal, it’s Zooey Deschanel.  And her voice is just a beautiful as it was in “Elf”.  Highly recommend this one. Winking smile

Gingerbread house

And we have our annual Gingerbread house creation.  I love as the kids are getting older they have definite ideas as to how it should be done…and I my control is quickly being lost.  And seriously, all mom is asking for is a NICE PICTURE of my kids with their Gingerbread House.  AND……this is what I get!  Haha.  What are ya gonna do?  And please note the new addition this year.  My son decided we absolutely needed a chimney.

Gingerbread men

Christmas would not be complete without some sort of disaster coming out of my kitchen.  This was a new recipe for Gingerbread men, AND I had never made them before.  (We usually stick to sugar cookies.)  I’m always up for a challenge though…and to my surprise – they were VERY good!

Flamingo Christmas

And of course, I LOVE my Christmas tree!  Although the decorations are moved around on a daily basis…never sure where I will find them!  Anyone who has heard of me speak about my daughter, you will know she is a really flamingo nut.  We of course HAVE to have a flamingo ornament on the tree.  (Which isn’t as hard as you’d think with Grandparents that spend time in Florida over the winter. )

Well…I hope everyone has a WONDERFUL holiday!  Stay safe and healthy and enjoy each other!!  Smile

What a great year it has been for K Photo and Design!  So many wonderful clients have kept me busy and entertained over the last 12 months.  I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for your business and wish you all the best in 2011!!

Also, if are not currently following me on facebook, please do!  (I often post my current specials there.)  Invite your friends too!!

Christmas is quickly approaching.  And while I really don’t feel like I’m quite ready yet.  I just wanted to take the time to wish everyone a great Christmas, while sharing a few of my favourite holiday things. 

Number one on the list: Christmas lights.  I LOVE to fill the house up with tones of coloured little lights.  If I could completely light the entire house with Christmas lights, I would.  

Number two: Decorations.  Our tree is divided into sections.  My absolute FAVOURITE ornaments go front and center, right at the top.  Followed by the breakable ones we want to keep away from the kids and cats.  Then the bottom section is filled with wooden, material or plastic ornaments.  And a section that has come about over the last few years: the Santa section.  For some reason they feel ALL Santas must sit on the same branch.  But these two are my absolute favourite.  Totally home-made first Christmas ornaments for both my kiddies. 

Number three: The Santa pants candy bowl.  And every year it is filled with Christmas M&M’s.  But seriously…it’s just the cutest bowl ever.

Number four: Fun Christmas activities.  We usually end up doing some sort of baking.  But this year we thought we’d try a Gingerbread house.  I have NO idea how these things are supposed to stay together.  And it didn’t quite turn out like the photo on the box.  But I love it!

Okay, and there’s opening presents and eating turkey and all that fun stuff too.  🙂 

Wishing you all a safe and happy holiday season!!
