A VERY White Christmas!

As you know, we got A LOT of snow last week! My brothers, my sister in laws, my niece, my parents, and I were all stormed in for a few days. We had a Harry Potter marathon, ate lots of food, and found other things to do. But, even Oliver and Dooker were bored after a while.

Once it stopped snowing, we ventured over to my grandparent's house to visit.

And it was also time to clean out the snow. (Well, the boys cleaned it as we watched.)

Grace and I both documented this snowy Christmas week! :)

And the whole family was finally able to celebrate all together on Sunday. Here is Grace, showing off her Christmas dress!

I hope you all had a great Christmas!

Merry Christmas!

I've had a cold since the end of last week (at least it started after finals!) and I'm hoping it's almost done. Coughing, sneezing, sniffling... etc. :( I couldn't sleep tonight, so I decided to show you my parents' Christmas cards this year.

They were a 5x5 tri-fold card featuring pictures I took in May. Rusty writes the Christmas letter every year, so he gets the entire back to himself!

This is how it looks when it's flattened out. Here you will see the inside flap of the card, the back of the card, and the front.

Here is the inside spread.

I already have an idea for next year's cards for them. I will just have to attempt to get my family all together and get them to take another family picture. :)

It's easy to do and doesn't hurt at all, I promise! You can really put a smile on someone's face this Christmas. Just be sure to email your nominations to by Christmas Eve night!

Mr. V is 3!

We've got another birthday boy on our hands! I took this a few weeks ago, you know before his mom and I were crazy from finals. :) His mom and I have had classes together the past three semesters and have gotten to be good friends! When I came over a few weeks ago to take his pictures, he was SO excited! Today is Mr. V's birthday and I just wanted to wish him the best birthday ever!

Snow What Fun!

My super cute niece was at the farm today and we took advantage of the freshly fallen snow! We played outside and when it was dark enough....

we went back outside to look at the Christmas lights! Her reaction was, "Wowwwww!" Love it! :)

My little buddy, Carson, came in for a few Christmas pictures this morning. He cracks me up!

Tucker is 1!

I met with Tucker this morning on his birthday! He is such a sweetie. It's been so fun watching him grow up the past 6 months that I've known him! Here are a few photos from the morning.

Yum!!! :)

Such a sweetie!

Oh Christmas Tree

For those that haven't figured it out.... I LOVE Christmas! :) I also love winter, but most get mad at me when I say that. Haha! I always like to decorate for Christmas and I just wanted to show off my tree this year!

And now for Oliver's Christmas pictures this year. :) He sits so nice for me!

"Are you done, yet?"

If you haven't signed up for the newsletter, there is still time! I haven't sent out the December issue just yet and the coupon in this issue is a good one!

Also stay tuned for a few more blog posts next week. I have my last sessions of the year over the weekend and I will probably be posting another post of more Holiday decorations. If you think my tree is pretty, just wait until you see my parent's! It's gorgeous!
