portraits of one or more of my children, once a week, some weeks, in 2013.
him: being really patient, helping his little sister build a gingerbread house.
her: leaning trustfully on her biggest brother.
him: (in the background) delighting in his own sweet creation.
we've had so much fun this holiday season. we've been together more than usual as the teenager has been home and the mister has been keen to partake in holiday silliness (like baking ninja-bread men using ninja-shaped cookie cutters). I chose this snap of our christmastime from around the 2000 that I took (I am not even joking) because I think it shows all of their current personalities in the one frame.
and also we were having a lovely afternoon! I mean, sometimes photos lie. a picture only records a split second of that given moment.
I've seen photos of my kiddos smiling, looking joyful on a day that was stressful. I've seen photos of them looking cross on occasions when they were having the best time ever.
but on this day with my family we were all having a truly wonderful time. I am so grateful to have experienced it. I hope you had a lovely christmas too, friends.
catching up with jodi's 52 week project.
