Here are my girls are gussied up in their Christmas Sunday best. And as you can see, these were taken with studio lights! I have taken a leap and have myself a little studio set up in my home. Much more to come on that soon with the new year. But for now, I just couldn’t wait to share these cute Christmas girls. Hope you all had a great Christmas! We certainly had a good one.
Our next adventure we had while on our big family vacation was creating a color run for the kids. A few of us had gone on a color run the week before and we kept all of our bags of chalk they gave us. We might have sneaked a little more too. :) Each adult had a different color and we made the kids run in one big circle where they got nice and dirty with bright chalky colors. The adults were supposed to stay clean, but as you will see, the kids got them too. I was safe because I had a camera! Ha. Hazel especially loved it! I didn’t think she would even take part in it, but she ran around with the kids and got covered in chalk too. Then we hosed down the kids back at the house we rented and had them jump in the pool. This was pretty fun. Highly recommend making up your own color run!
Back in September, our little family spent a week with my mom, step-dad, and all the siblings and their families in Saint George. We created many fun adventures while there. One of our first fun activities was sending off lanterns with wishes written on them off to the sky. Each child was given a lantern and every couple did as well. Lydia’s wish was about becoming a princess(of course). The kids loved this. It was like magic watching those lanterns float in the sky.
More adventures to post from Saint George back from September to come.
Hazel is one of the quirkiest/silliest/sassiest/sweetest personalities I have ever come across. And she just keep getting sillier and sillier with time. Hazel can make Lydia belly laugh when acting silly around the house. Greg and I can only make Lydia belly laugh when tickling her! Hazel makes things lively and fun(and perhaps a little harder) around the house. She is picking up words left and right. Her latest is popcorn. I made popcorn last weekend, brought a bowl out for her and she exclaimed, “popcorn!” She loves the stuff.
We can’t get enough of our Hazel. And I am darn curious to see what she is going to be like as a teenager! And a little scared. :)
