Oh how I love this time of year!! It’s time to order Christmas cards! I didn’t get to do this last year because I was 1,000 months pregnant and waiting daily for Carter to make his debut. I kept putting it off because I was going to combine a Christmas card and his birth announcement in the same card. Of course he surprised the heck out of all of us and went past his due date and I had to be induced to get him out. I’m not bitter ;)
Anyway, so now we are a family of three and I was so looking forward to getting some good family pictures for a Christmas card. My sister usually does our pictures, but she’s in Tuscaloosa and is super busy right now, not to mention a little thing called Alabama Football makes doing anything in Tuscaloosa on a weekend next to impossible :) So instead of asking her to come all the way to Birmingham, I just had a girl I work with that has gotten a recent interest in photography come take a few snaps of us. I wouldn’t even call this a photo session. It took less than 3o minutes and was super informal. We met Jaime at the Ross Bridge trail on Saturday around 2pm (this scenery may look familiar because it’s where our maternity session was - see that post here). She hasn’t finished playing and editing with all of the pictures yet, but here’s a couple she’s sent me already:
That smile is seriously infectious!!
The kid LOVES to eat mommy’s necklaces!!!
Those blue eyes!!! BE STILL MY HEART!
I am SO happy with the way they turned out! And these are only the ones she’s sent me so far. There’s still many she took that she just hasn’t gotten to yet! So glad Jaime did this for us and allowed us to be her hobby guinea pigs!!
So once I get the other pictures I will pick my favorites and order our card!! Next step…decorating for Christmas!!! I’m enlisting my mother’s help and kicking my hubby and baby to the curb so we can get the house decorated and ready without interruptions. Don’t worry, I’m not decorating anything until after Thanksgiving. Well, day before Thanksgiving at the absolute earliest :)
