Christmas Scavenging

1. FAMILY
I'd love to tell you that this little mini-me outfit was planned...because that is so something I would do, but it came about very innocently as Cashton got his outfit as a gift from his godmother/aunt and my husband already had his. 

2.MOTION BLUR
this is an outtake from a little photo shoot I did with my munchkins...it just CRACKS.ME.UP.  Sam looks like she's CRAZY! (which she most definitely is) and Cash has already got "that look" on his face like "I don't know her" HAHA!  It's so hard shooting in manual mode, indoors, low-light with little pip-squeaks. 

3.PRETTY PACKAGES
Christmas Morning under our tree.


4.GLOW
Apart from what a may look like at our Christmas village ICU (the plastic bucket I have to keep all the tiny figures that she has massacred), Samantha LOVES our tiny little town.

5.SPARKLE
EVERYONE is doing it...but I am special because our Christmas Tree fell to the HARDWOOD floor TWICE last year, so we don't have any of these beautiful glass ball ornaments at our house anymore...I had to borrow my brother and SIL's tree for this one!

Your family shot is so cool with the matching shirts :) Loved that glowing village shot too - have you all the figurines hidden? I remember having to have to hide ours for a few years including the lamp posts after having glued them all together again.

Lovely photos, I think my favourite is the sparkle one, it is just so pretty.

These are wonderful. I think it's adorable that your son and husband wore matching outfits.

Someone else who collects villages. Very cool. I love the motion blur though. Typical kid photo. One does not cooperate. Luckily we have photo challenges to enter those in.

Great choices! Looks like it was a wonderful Christmas. LOVE the glow and motion blur.

Love your sparkle shot. Sorry about your tree, that has happened to me two times also... but NOT in the same year, that's awful! Getting a bigger stand, thats what I did and so far so good!

Jenn said...

The motion blur made me laugh! And your sparkle shot is pretty! Great job!

I like your ornament photo and your mini me photo. It sure looks planned. :)

Susan said...

The sparkle shot is great! I like the reflection and the lights.

Wow - you were able to capture such beautiful pictures. I especially love the blur shot ... you can tell the little one was shaking her head in laughter.

Love the blur, love the glow and love the outfits! My boys had the same ones as well!! That print is rabid :) Nice job!

Jessica said...

Love your glow shot... my mom does a Christmas Village every year... actually she's up to three villages now. ;)

Michelle said...

Cute outfits on the first - Dad looks so impressed! haha!

Your motion blur is adorable!

I hear you on the glass ornaments thing - I've wanted to take some pics of them too, but our cats kept jumping in the tree (besides the hardwood floor in the old 2 story house being horribly un-level) years ago so we don't have any but 5 really sad looking ones that just stay in the ornament box every year... :)
