The holidays are simply magical. Friends gather, family comes to town, all bringing smiles and fond remembrances of yesteryear.
Christmastime and winter break was a pretty fantastic time of year when I was a kid. It had all the sparkle and wonder of a cheery Hallmark movie dipped in school glue and rolled in every canister of glitter within reach at the craft table.

We finally got our White Christmas weather in northern Indiana… a week or so late! Since it was more of a muddy and gray Christmas here we burned off some cabin fever energy and let the kids get into Christmas PJs for some photos that matched the magical snowy weather outside.

We ducked inside nearby buildings between gusts of wind for a mix of indoor and outdoor wintry engagement portraits.

(Now where’s our snow for sledding and snowmen!?)
Here’s a handful of favorites from our family’s first Christmas with Adrian. He loved playing with the boxes and paper more than most of the things that were inside the gifts. Who said joy has to be anything complicated, expensive, or obligated? This kid has it down plain and simple.
One of the coolest ideas for a first Christmas ornament I’ve ever seen. My sis Genna knew a painter at the local Farmer’s Market and used a photo my mom took from a phone and made the coolest baby ornament I’ve seen!
I posted the original photo in the Deedle Beetle post last month, and have to say I much prefer the sledding version for the ornament. 😀
Happy New Year this week!
