Photography Challenge

Hello there! I hope that you all had happy holidays and are enjoying this week. We had a the first white Christmas in 150 years! It was beautiful.
My kids are still home on their winter break and we are enjoying lazy days watching movies and coloring and playing with their new toys and scooters.
You would think as a photographer I would have a million photographs of the holidays but I really didn't take too many. My favorite photos are of the snacks at my mother in-law's house.

The best part of Christmas: telling my kids that I am pregnant! I'm about ten weeks along - with a due date around July or August. Emma is especially excited about the new baby. She kisses my belly goodnight every night. It's completely adorable.

I spent more money on this adorable "Big Brother" shirt for Josiah then I have spent on a shirt for any of my kids but it was so worth it to see the looks on the faces of our family.

So this week's photography challenge is kids. I'm sure that we all have cute photos of our kids (or other kids of family or friends) from this last week! I can't wait - I'm sure it'll be a cuteness overload this week! Since I'm really busy (and really tired) there will not be a "favorites" post for this week's photography challenge. I'll start doing those again the following week (1/4) - the theme will be white on white so be planning that week's shot! If you already have a favorite white on white shot please email me a link to it because I'll be doing an inspiration post a couple days before the photography challenge.

That's so... exciting! Three of my four were born in July and August so I know exactly how tired you've been feeling right here around the Holidays. I remember being the most tired then. Whew....

And the shirt is adorable! I would've SO splurged too... :) Such a fun way to spread the news.

Happy Holidays to you and your family and thanks for hosting the challenge!
