Christmas 2010

I have so many pictures to share from a number of holiday sessions, but before I do that, I wanted to give you a glimpse of our Christmas.

Here are a few family images that we took for our holiday card. With a little camera swapping and a tripod, we had surprising success 🙂

Pax had been asking Santa for a “draw draw” for weeks so he was thrilled to find  a brand new easel on Christmas morning. He had so much fun pretend painting that we didn’t even have to open the real paints. A win for all!

Pax had a blast hanging out with his cousins…and playing with their new toys.

One of his favorite holiday activities was making “man man mans” or gingerbread men. On Christmas, he got to decorate a gingerbread town too. He did a remarkable job of getting the candy on the house rather than in his mouth.

By the end of the day, he definitely had the present opening down!

Couldn’t resist leaving you with the obligatory Santa snapshot. As much as Pax loved telling Santa what he wanted from afar, he wanted no part of him up close and personal.

I hope your holidays were as wonderful and memorable as ours!
