Candid Christmas (A Quick Review!)

As you might have noticed, I took a step away from Our Someday Farm to celebrate the Christmas holiday.

We traveled to both St. Louis, Missouri and Estes Park, Colorado during a 9-day window, via CAR, but it was a lot of fun spending time with both our extended families and as a family of five.

Here are just a few pictures capturing Christmas around Our Someday Farm...

Large photo...Santa's elves love to wrap gifts...especially  using grosgrain ribbon!

Top to Bottom (L-shape...counterclockwise)
1:  Mary Catherine showing off Suzanne's winter snow boots. (Suzanne is Mary's American Girl Doll.)
2:  Luke's most-loved gift of all...a wooden car carrier from Doug and Melissa.  (Don't you just LOVE wooden toys?)
3:  Benjamin playing harmonica...a simple and highly loved stocking stuffer!
4:  Luke on Christmas morning.
5:  Benjamin insisted on wrapping his own gift to Mommy!  I love Kindergarten print...and that he spelled out our last name!!!)
6:  Mary Catherine showing off her new ear muffs from Auntie Julie and Uncle Johnny.  Adorable!
7:  Mary Catherine insisted on feeding Santa's reindeer, but we were out of oats.  She improvised with cherry tomatoes...labeling one per reindeer!  ;)

A few other captured moments...

A sweet moment shared between Father/Daughter

How DOES that Santa know???!!!

Aaaaargh, Matey!

So many moments captured on film...and so very grateful for the advent of the digital age!

  1. Looks wonderful,Valerie! And yes...we love wooden toys in this house. Sant just began bringing them with our little Flynn. She got a Melissa and Doug pot and pan set with fruit and veggies...sooo much nicer than the plastic. What was Santa thinking all these years?! : )
