Today, we missed our Stake Conference for one simple reason: we couldn't get up after our crazy day yesterday. None of us woke up any earlier than 9:30! Sorry...
After much delaying, we've decided we need to start figuring out where our Christmas decor will be this year. At least, the ones that we do have... I say delaying because we got sidelined making paper animal snowflakes! So fun! We had butterflies, swans, dinosaurs, a modern sphinx (Ian's design) and an armadillo head (though I still contend it was a bunny's head).
We couldn't locate any of the Christmas boxes we stashed from last year and with busy days ahead of us, there was no time to "search and rescue" our intended decor.
After setting up, we decided, "We can take our portraits now, too!"
After dinner, outfit changing, and several test shots, we finally found some doable poses.
These are what we came up with:
Our fireplace; I found this new Nativity carving of just Joseph, Mary, Jesus and three animals. It looks beautiful, it was affordable and I just love it!
Charlie and I
Our three darlings...
