So, had a mild FREAK OUT yesterday when I realized we’re half way through November and I am so not ready for the holidays. I’m known for sending out some of the earliest cards, having all gifts shipped before Thanksgiving, and having my home decorated by Sunday night (after Thanksgiving). So to be less than 2 weeks from T-day… well… panic set in.
Now rather than sit in a corner and rock and mumble to myself I got up and did some stuff! While E was at preschool becca and I went out Christmas shopping for the various relatives I need to ship my gifts to. I was impressed with how much ground we covered WITHOUT my christmas planner. Plus- we had so much FUN!
Why no planner? Can’t find it! Oh well, moving on. I already got the girls their Christmas dresses weeks ago with intent to take photo around nov 2 or so for cards. That NEEDS to get done asap so I can start working on the cards. I will send cards with a photo of girls inside, and I like to start writing those out/addressing/etc. by Nov 15 normally. Sooo…
C’mon girls let’s go take pictures!
E, when I said to cover your privates I don’t mean like that, I mean sit like a princess. (sigh) this ‘aint workin.
This is my favorite photo because it’s so random that they both have same sad sap look. Plus anybody who knows me knows that I take quick, painless photo shoots with my girls. 10min maximum start>finish. They are actually quite happy here- I think I just caught them off for a moment.
See- lil B is showing off that blue M&M. nice. That’s not gonna work. Ok, I’m going to try one more thing before giving up and running back into the house crying…
GOTCHA! Everyone in focus, smiling, no weird stuff going on… yes sir this will do. PHEW! Off to Costco to pick up the prints!!
PS- I can’t recommend being an early (holiday) bird enough. JUST DO IT. Come December you’ll be SO GLAD that you did because then you can relax and just enjoy the season. 🙂
