This holiday season was crazy, hence the after-Christmas post. I also may or may not have gone a little crazy on pictures this year as well. I can’t help it! They let me have so much fun, I can’t stop. Miss Kayla has really gotten into this over the years. She wants to help with everything and be in every picture. However that usually comes with the price of a ridiculous face, pose or prop. Cameron, on the other hand, is more into destroying anything we set up and being bribed to sit still for what feels like a millisecond.

Although busy, it has been so fun seeing them get into all things Christmas and holiday. Kayla has been singing “Oh Hanukkah” all over the place, we visited the holiday train and the enchanted garden at Descanso. She asked every day to go by the house on Florence and look at their lights. I love that house too but Cameron doesn’t understand why he can’t ride the train. When I told him we couldn’t ride it he started crying, “touch it! touch it!”. Poor thing. Needless to say Santa came through for him with some trains, cars and airplanes. Kayla also loved waking up every morning to find her elf (on the shelf). A few mornings it was way earlier than normal wake up time and she’d come running excitedly into our room asking us to come see. Cameron really got into it too, even finding him before her a couple times. We started a new tradition this year with a mailbox (this one). She “mails” her letter to Santa and for the 12 days leading up to Christmas she gets a tiny surprise like a piece of candy. On Christmas day she stopped during the festivities to tell me that this was the best Christmas ever. She still really wants My First Fashion Designer (whatever that is) but she’s beyond happy which makes my heart smile. That’s all I could ever ask for.

Quick fashion note – I was pretty obsessed with Kayla’s Christmas dress. I don’t remember noticing the hi-low rise when I bought it but it photographed beautifully! She loved the sparkles and approved of it immediately at Nordstrom. One of the few times we both agreed on an outfit 😉 Oh, and Cam the little man in the bottom pic, I mean…

We hope everyone is having a very happy holiday season. Cheers to an amazing 2018!!!

And we’re back, it’s been a few crazy months but we’re back. Kayla is growing up so fast, she now loves the camera. If I even pick up my phone (without the intent of snapping her pic) she starts saying, “cheese!” She’s such a ham now and we love it. She was more than excited to put on her little 4th of July outfit this year and especially loved her necklace. Adorning jewelry is one of her latest crazes. She will stand at my jewelry box and put on all my bracelets and necklaces or put on all the dress up jewelry and tiaras in her room. Oh, and she is very particular about her hair styles, this particular style she calls her “Minnie ears”. It’s either this or “Elsa braids” almost every day.

I can’t wait to see her face when she sees the fireworks this holiday. Have a safe and happy 4th!!!
