~ The weather here is cloudy and grey, but the season has still been festive!

CMP52W50gingerbreadhouses-0365
~ Each year I buy gingerbread house kits for my girls to decorate… it’s so fun to see the designs they come up with.

CMP52W51ornament-0417
~ The girls also paint a ceramic ornament each year. They giggle at the ones they made when they were toddlers but we love them all.

~ Decorating sugar cookies is another one of our favorite holiday traditions. Tip- roll out the dough between two sheets of waxed paper and chill for 20 minutes… it will make cutting out the cookies so much easier!

I hope you have a wonderful holiday season! 🙂

It’s been over a month since my last post! I fell off the blogging train (everything is going great… just busy with work and life!) but have still been taking photos when I have a chance. Here are some of my favorites since my last post:

Trinket Boxes, Denim, and a Shadow Puppet

Here are a few photos from my ongoing personal photography project… the inspiration topics for these photos were vibrance, red/white/blue (I decided to omit the red), and shadow. Thanks for looking! 🙂

As someone who does not like airplane travel, this does not look promising.

I loved this show as a child, and the app is fabulous too!
