While I’m finishing up some fun projects this week, today I thought I’d share a couple quick pics from Christmas.
It was truly a magical year for us. You’ll hear a little more on the “magic” part later, but for now some photos this adorable kid. Side note: I’m going to put her in a fancy Christmas dress for as long as she’ll let me. I’m sorry, I feel like it’s my motherly duty.
So Ellie is obsessed with anything Harry Potter right now. She was Hermione for Halloween and requested a bunch of Harry Potter items for Christmas. Well we’ve been wanting to plan a family vacation for a couple years now. We’ve really never been on a vacation with just the 3 of us.
This is where being a graphic designer really comes in handy. I whipped up the fake letter in Photoshop and had it printed poster size at Walgreens. You can read it better below (I changed the date of our departure, we’re not in Florida now!).
I also had an old friend’s girlfriend paint a pair of shoes for Ellie in the Harry Potter theme. Check out aTOMic Designs on Facebook to see more of her creations.
After presents we headed over to my parents’ house on Christmas afternoon. We have a couple of traditions, like playing table hockey. This sits in my parents’ family room from Thanksgiving to Christmas every single year. As you can see, we like to teach them young.
I wish I had some better photos to show you, but I hate taking away from these special moments when I’m focused too much around my camera. One thing I’m bummed about is that I didn’t get to grab a photo of us 3 together and the only photo I have of Ellie and me is from my iPhone. Oh well, there’s always New Year’s, right?
I hope you guys had a very Merry Christmas and happy holidays!
Can you believe tomorrow is New Year’s Eve already?
This year flew by!
