Now that our Christmas cards have been mailed out and most people have received them, I thought I’d finally share the photos I took!
I generally take the photos not long after Halloween, just to ensure that I have enough time to edit, design and order the cards. This year’s card features this cool old tricycle that my mom has. Originally my grandma had found it at a new/used store when I was a kid. I have tons of memories racing it up and down the pathway at her old house, so I thought it would be fun to use it for our photos this week. I wasn’t sure how Isla would like sitting on it, but clearly there were no issues ;)
Since there was no snow of the ground I tried to make the photos more “Christmassy” by hanging some tree ornaments up. I think it worked out OK! I also made that little chalkboard sign with an old photo frame my mom donated my way and some spray chalkboard paint.
While it was a little cold outside and we tried to hurry through the photo taking, I think they turned out pretty good this year! (M&M’s also helped – bribing, FTW!)
