The Glittery Snow Globe

Raleigh Santa Claus Photographer

Raleigh Santa Claus Photographer 4.jpgP I N this to pinterest

I’ve been photographing this sweet girl since she was a newborn + her and Santa together is just precious. I loved this set Ericka worked so hard on so so much! It takes a lot of time to put together the sets, but when they are finished, they are so worth it! And this sweet girl’s dress was just perfect + beautiful. I love the holidays so much so I’ve loved going back through each session to blog them…especially the magic of Santa sessions – little ones bringing their lists and getting just so excited to see Santa. It’s the sweetest.

My boys had so much fun sledding on the little hill behind our house this afternoon. They mostly loved dodging snowballs from their daddy and also trying to hit him with their own snowballs. The snow is just so pretty, I can’t believe I’m saying that I’m actually going to be sad to see it go. Without the hurriedness of errands and carpool, I’ve been able to get a lot of work done. It’s also so fun to see everyone’s snow photos + videos on social media. And the snow looks so pretty with the blue skies today. Still waiting to see if they are going to call off the schools tomorrow. I’m excited to start working on our snowflake cookies! Fun, fun!

Beep

Raleigh Holiday Family Photography 

Raleigh Holiday Family Photograpy 45.jpgP I N this to pinterest

This was the first time we met this sweet family at our first ever Holiday Blue Truck Minis. Beep Beep! And they were just so sweet together. How cute is this little one? He was all smiles for Ericka + I!

Fifteen degrees. It was fifteen degrees this morning. My little one wants to be out in the snow just so badly, but at fifteen degrees, my hands just ache. And I have to laugh at my older one, who loves warmth so much, he wants to be inside building forts and watching Star Wars marathons. (which we have been doing. The force is strong with this one) We recently took the Star Wars tour at Disney, and it was so super fun. Growing up with a brother, we alternated between Anne of Green Gables + Star Wars, so having seen it so much, of course I am a fan. The boys did the hilarious photoshop thing in the Star Tours gift shop on our trip, I need to post it today. I think that it may have been the photographer’s first day because she was getting some help during the process. In the midst of that, Harrison was screaming that he wanted to take a nap. (My child loves his sleep now) I don’t remember what happened – Michael must have done something goofy, but he smiled for one second in the middle of the crazy busy gift shop. (probably his Yoda voice, Harrison’s favorite) I am thankful after the busy busy fall, I cherish the quietness of January and getting to be with my boys a lot more. And even having these snow days after our trip, to get to have some quiet time with them is a treasure. My main goal today is to make snowflake cookies with them. For some reason I have always been afraid of making cookies from scratch, like they wouldn’t hold together or it’s too many ingredients, I’m wasting money since I don’t make them a lot. (I know, all silly excuses) But these past few months, my boys have loved making cookies. And making them from scratch is so much easier than I thought and not that many ingredients. (especially since the boys want to bake a lot) By happy accident, we made our sugar cookies with lemon extract over the holidays. (I thought I bought vanilla but I bought lemon! ha!) Now my boys love lemon sugar cookies, and I actually like them better, too! It’s a memory and a treasure to have this time with them..On that note, I’m not sure when this snow is going to melt but I promised Harrison a sled ride today, so off I go!

Buffalo Plaid 

Raleigh Airstream Family Photography 

 

Raleigh Airstream Family Photography 5.jpgP I N this to pinterest

This winter I have been a little bit crazy about Buffalo Plaid. It’s just so pretty, and black and white so classic. Both of my boys definitely have some buffalo plaid shirts. And I want a tiny bit of it in the house somewhere, but I haven’t figure out what just yet. (So many options) All this to say, when big brother showed up in his buffalo plaid blazer, I loooooooved it. And this mama is always so classy and stylish, so we knew cuteness overload was coming in the boys’ clothes. (Her + Ericka had chatted beforehand about clothes, so Ericka had already warned me I was going to go crazy over their outfits)

Since this is a Christmas post, (long overdue, I know, I know!) I’m going to share my three favorite kind of silly Christmas songs. 1. Santa Claus Got Stuck in My Chimney. (Ella Fitzgerald) Seriously love this song + listen to on repeat. 2. I’m Getting Nuttin’ For Christmas. I think my boys get really tired of me teasing them with this song, ha, but it’s one of my dad’s favorites so of course, I love it, too. 3. Christmas Cookies by George Strait. I just had to search it on you tube and play it because I love it so much. “So those sprinkly things just make it worse. ‘Cause it makes them taste better than they did at first and they’re absolutely impossible to resist…”So if you feel like a little bit of a giggle on this snow day, search for these on you tube. (or itunes, or whatever:)I have always been a huge George Strait fan growing up, which I really just like so many different types of music, but I think I’m going to have to listen to George on this snow day now! (and make cookies, too, of course!)

On The Farm

Raleigh Holiday Mini Sessions Photography

I’m going to be posting so many Holiday minis in January because I am playing catch up from the crazy busy fall. I have loved photographing this sweet family the past couple of years, and their boys are just so much fun, it’s been so sweet to see little sister joining in on all the fun. I love how her sweet personality just adds so much to the session. I think we were all laughing just trying to keep her in the same place as her brothers!

So with the snow coming tomorrow, it has me thinking about board games. I feel like I need to amp up our stash a little bit, especially when snow days come. What are some of your favorite board games? When I was a kid, I lovvvved Monopoly . And on show days, the neighborhood kids – we would all play in the snow for a while and then head inside to play Monopoly . Because in NC, one little snowfall can turn into three days off of school, sometimes our monopoly games went on for days. Owen is actually a huge fan of the game, and it was really cute..He had a playdate with a few friends who are also huge monopoly fans over the winter break, and the boys played for hours. Their rules are a little bit made up and hilarious, but as long as they are having fun, right? So, if anyone has any great recommendations for other games to look into, please let me know! Ok, onto the milk and bread.

   Little Blue Truck

Raleigh Christmas Truck Mini Sessions Photographer

I was really excited when Ericka and I chatted about Little Blue Truck Christmas Mini Sessions. These were just so much fun at Back Achers Christmas Tree Farm in Raleigh. We had perfect weather, and all of the kiddos were jus so excited about the blue truck. I love the props Ericka picked out so much, too! The little tree and the lantern were adorable. These two boys together are so so cute, and I love all of the images of this sweet family.

I have to admit, I’m not a huge winter fan. (Being cold is my least favorite thing, ever) Michael bought me tickets to a play in NYC for Christmas and I asked if we could push it out to Spring, ha! I don’t even own a coat warm enough for NYC and we usually don’t need one that warm here in North Carolina….although this week is pretty frosty. But, I have to say, Christmas is a part of winter and I love Christmas. Ok, best parts of winter 1.Christmas. 2.Christmas break (see a trend here) 3.Snow Days (I like looking at the snow and being outside for about five minutes, ha!) 4.Hot chocolate every.single.day. 5.Reading Good books. I have more time in winter to read, which is my favorite! What’s your favorite part of winter?
