I know, I know... it's been WEEKS and almost all that I've been posting are my Wordless Wednesdays. Not good... not good at all. I apologize, lovely blog readers. I have had a really hard time getting back into the swing of things in my life since the holidays and they're about to get nutty again (more on that later this week!) So, I am going to do a quick sum up of my Christmas in Chicago (yes there will be pictures).
I flew home on a Friday and the very next day I was able to spend time with my very favorite people.
It had been a long time since I was able to see everyone all together and the very first time I got to hold my newest nephew!! We celebrated Christmas 3 times the first of which included my niece and two oldest (they’re 3 & 1) nephews opening presents. It’s always a fun time hearing excited shouts of ‘that’s awesome!’ and ‘I want to open it now!’ I love seeing the utter joy and happiness on their faces opening gifts. It’s rare to see an adult have that kind of response to a gift anymore…
Until Christmas Eve when I opened my gift (Christmas celebration #2). My brother the paparazzi caught my reaction to my gift on his camera
What was I so excited about, you ask?
Wouldn’t you be? Since I got the camera I’ve been doing all kinds of playing around practicing and seeing what happens with different shots
I really love my new camera and I’m so thankful for that gift, but the sweetest present for me was getting to spend time with my family.
I hope you all had fabulous Christmas’, blogging friends!!
*I need to give credit where credit is due... the pictures of: my parents and I with the baby, my brother, his wife and their three kids, the picture of me opening my Christmas present, and the picture of me and the 4 kiddos were all taken my my paparazzi brother. He's good, isn't he.
