december from the iphone

all set and ready to hunt

tuckered out on the jeep ride

3 generation baseball action

fence decorations

just a couple of elves hanging together on the mantle

and hanging upside down in the tree

saturday morning trouble playing

the last stitch on a baby quilt

the elves go camping

sewing messiness pushing me over the edge

fresh from florida grapefruit

circle santa.....with an uphappy tatum

hot chocolate and computer time (obviously i wasn't blogging!)

christmas gift creating

worn out

treat making

channeling my inner nicole curtis



our christmas was full of so many wonderful things this year:
a trip to see the circle santa, whom tatum was not a fan of,
secret crafting of gifts,
family gatherings here and there,
christmas eve service,
dance parties by the pool,
opening of christmas pj's,
early morning sibling snuggles,
santa visiting,
hosting christmas day here at the house,
and the days afterward soaking in our tree and beautiful cards from those we hold dear.


jake's quilt

inspired by his dog print crib sheet and neutral nursery.
quilted with much love.
and the wrinkly goodness galore, oh my!



siesta key: family pictures

we managed to hit all family picture session highlights:
tears, fake smiles, real smiles,
silly faces, bribery,
kids wanting to use the camera,
and some pretty good pictures too!
