our last christmas craft...

i could cry just typing that!

ann and i made these wreaths last night using a variety of vintage bulbs we have been collecting, a fun little project.

i had to laugh when i came across this one, ann snapped it and i hardly even noticed.

i laughed because A. it is the only photo i have of the three of us and B. it so perfectly represents our dynamic... simone firmly planted to my side (such a mommys girl, this one) and estee running all around.

that is what i love so much about photography, even when the photo is so imperfect it can be so perfect.

five months...

simone is five months today... she is just changing so much everyday, today she said da da da da to her daddy, he of course was thrilled!

it has been sort of a rough couple of days... lucky for me i have these two, chris, and the best family to keep me focused on the things that matter... i am blessed beyond belief.

*also note the darling onesie ann made simone.
i will get a close up on it soon... real cute.
