Christmas pix

I feel so behind on posting photos here! At least I haven't really taken any in January (typically a very slow month, and sort of a photography break for me), it's just all of the Christmas ones that I have left to edit. If you're like me, you're ready for spring and not necessarily in the mood to look at Christmas pictures, even though it was only a few weeks ago (which seems impossible). BUT! Too bad so sad, I'm posting them anyway. Here is the first set of what I like to call Christmas Vacation Assortment.

And by "assortment" I mean randomness. I just took pictures when the mood struck, so there's variety here, but I also missed photographing certain activities because I was enjoying my nieces instead of holding the camera. So here are some Starbucks mugs my mom is apparently collecting. Or at least inadvertently collecting. I like them. Poor New Mexico only gets one for the entire state.

I think it was the first night my sister's family arrived when we sat around the fire pit for awhile.

Rocky joined us.

N loves her Hello Kitty sleeping mask!

There are definitely a lot more photos of little E than any of the other girls. She's 3...I can't help but take pictures of her all the time! The other girls had their moments of way more pictures back when they were about this age, too! (Like that time I took a thousand pictures of N, for instance.)

Anyway, E loved this little display right at a perfect height for her to admire, and even though we told her not to pick the stuff up, she couldn't help herself.

E being silly, dancing around to a musical stuffed animal.

More dancing.

My parents actually had a real tree again! We grew up always having real trees, but when I was an adult they bought a fake and had it for years. I guess they got rid of it so I was thrilled to have the real thing again. I know it's a hassle, but it's just better!

E wasn't as cooperative for this picture, but I loved that N was happily posing with her sister. Right afterwards, though, E wriggled away and N had hurt feelings.

We spent a lot of time in this "Christmas room" (the livingroom) because I looooove the couch in here and it was all nice and festive.

E, watching Polar Express in the trailer where some of us slept. She lays so cutely.

My parents got Shari's Berries!

And truffles. And I got to have one. :)

On Christmas Eve I didn't get a chance to do portraits with E (I did them with the other girls--photos to come), but I wanted to make sure and get a picture of her in her dress. She had already opened her Christmas Eve present of slippers, so I thought the combo outfit was cute. And then she's just putting on shoes in the other picture, and she put them on the right feet! Some kids are cute enough that even putting on shoes is photo-worthy.

I'll just keep posting these in sections until I'm done! I don't know how many posts it'll take. Check back for more tomorrow!

I also took a lot of video, because my new camera does video and I had to try it out. I don't know if you're interested in those, but I may post one or five later.


  1. Those mugs are fun! Your mom is so cute! I'm loving all of the Christmas photos even though it's mid-January and hard to imagine that Christmas was only less than 30 days ago!

    1. Thanks, Dania! I just remembered I was going to mention how behind on comments, I am. :-O Anyway, I'm glad you still like seeing the photos!


    I also love your choices of subject matter. E is pretty fab and her putting on the shoes was my fave.

    1. Thanks! :D Wow, I almost didn't post the mug photo. I'm glad I did.


    Nah j/k they're just coffee mugs :p

    Christmas already seems like eons ago...

    1. I know! And today really felt like spring. I had this moment where I was confused about the time of year.

    2. Oh my goodness Mr. danongames! You crack me up!!

  4. So many great pictures!! Your nieces are beyond adorable. :D

  5. E is very photogenic! For that matter, all your nieces are photogenic! (nephews, too, but they weren't here) I'll bet your camera can't wait for the new little model to arrive.

    Christmas does seem like a long time ago, but I appreciate the reminders!

    Thanks, love, Mom

    1. Yeah, I would love to take more day-to-day photos of my nephieces, but that's just not in the cards for me most of the time!
