Christmas 2015 Wrap Up – Favorite Moments of December

Everly’s Sink Bathbaby sink bath photographyShe always gets so excited for this! She is getting pretty big for the sink, but she loves it so much, and it’s the easiest way to tame her crazy bed hair in the morning. Stormy, on the other hand, wants nothing to do with baths these days, guess that’s a boy sink bath photography^”Noooooooooose, Mama”baby sink bath photography^My cue to wash her leg, haha

An Early Christmas Giftbackyard toddler photographyhappy toddler backyard photography^Complete childhood joy when they found this little slide I thrifted for $13 at Goodwill. We just couldn’t wait to let them enjoy this one, and it was totally worth it.backyard toddler photography

 New Oven=Giant Box to Play inh & m dress baby gap twins playing in giant boxh & m dress giant cardboard box photographyh & m dress baby gap twins playing in giant boxOur oven went out during the beginning of November and remained that way for several weeks. I had a pretty large list of holiday goodies I wanted to make and I was starting to get worried I wouldn’t be able to bake any of them. Luckily we found a super good black Friday deal and got an awesome new stove just in time! (insert fireworks here) We celebrated by playing in the larger than life box it came in, I was pretty excited that I fit in there too 😉

The Real Santatwin santa outfits j crew elephant dress buffalo plaid sweatertwin santa outfits j crew elephant dress buffalo plaid sweatertwin santa outfits j crew elephant dress buffalo plaid sweaterThey were a lot happier to go see Santa than to actually sit on his lap and see him in person, we are 3 for 3, Stormy screamed and cried and Everly stared off not knowing what to do. We have the exact same picture with Santa 3 years in a row, the only difference is they are bigger!

Christmas Daychristmas morning opening presentschristmas morning opening presentstoddler on a toy cell phone^My mom got her this phone for Christmas and she talked on it for days…until she realized she couldn’t play games, now she says “no, Mama’s phone”stormy with north pole communicator^Justin’s mom got them this North Pole advent radio communicator, it was super cute watching them get all excited to talk to the elves or Santa every morningstormy in vintage velvet toddler suit on christmastwins in matching vintage outfits on christmas^I found these vintage outfits hanging on a rack together at the thrift store back in October with a few other ones, all the same size in coordinating boy/girl looks…seriously, a thrifter’s dream, especially a thrifter with twins! I was pretty excited about them, it’s cool to think that maybe they belonged to someone with boy/girl twins back in the 70’s. Thank you whoever you are, they’ve gone to the perfect home! everly in vintage christmas red velvet dresseverly in vintage christmas red velvet dresschristmas boy girl twins toddler photo shoot^And the award for the cheesiest Christmas set up goes to….ME! I was just playing around with things and wanted to try a couple shots. I had planned to change things around and redo them, especially since those red ornaments make a tree but the top one kept getting cropped out. But time passed, we all got sick, now it’s January and I’ve lost my motivation. However, I’m never one to settle or give up, so I’ll probably be that weird mom still dressing my kids in Holiday clothes and making them do Christmas photos on Valentines day 🙂

This is how they felt about it-christmas boy girl twins toddler photo shootikea stuffed carrot - porkchop the carrot in baby gap bear slippersAnd if you’re still with me, this is Porkchop the carrot signing off! (the result of late night goofing around when our kids wouldn’t sleep)

Hope everyone had a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
