I have been thinking about where to do the kids’ pictures for our Christmas card this year and while I love the big Christmas tree backdrop I used in years past when we lived in Bethesda, MD, I wanted to do something that was more candid and showcased their personalities. Yesterday was a beautiful afternoon, the kids had little homework for a change, and they’ve been excited to wear their new fancy clothes so we set out on our “mission” to the field across the street. As soon as we got there they excitedly ran around and wouldn’t you know… my little boy stepped right in dog poop. People who don’t clean up after their dogs make me irate but that is neither here no there for this post. A photo session that started off in near tears quickly became fun for all. I mean how funny is POOP to 4 and 5 year olds?! I got so many great shots of my kids being themselves and really love them all. It was hard to narrow down which ones I would process and even harder to pick what would be on the Christmas card… there will be a lot this year! I normally don’t think about Christmas before Thanksgiving is over but this year I can’t wait for all of the festivities of both holidays! Without further ado here are my not-so-little-anymore Littles! I hope they make you smile.
