I’ll tell you… it doesn’t always feel like christmas is this eighty degree heat, but I am so in love with these photos.
that tree in that magic ball.
she learned how.
an awkward photo. but so in love with her motions and her excitement “look at this tree, mama!”
I didn’t realize how close and coming Christmas is…. 9 days? When did that happen? I mean, we JUST decorated! Maybe it’s my own fault for not decorating sooner…. shh, whatever. We do things slow and late around here. It’s a little bit crazy to me that this will be our third christmas with Alex. With all the ups and downs and back and forth’s, I don’t know how we managed three, but it’s pretty cool. I’m so in love with our first set of holiday photos together…. it’s honestly one of my favorite posts on this whole blog… which is funny, because I’m typically not a big christmas person… but I feel like it’s growing on me a little bit or at least parts of it. It’s mostly to create memories for Marlowe and not so much for ourselves, but it’s good. We all like it.
Also, we totally got a tree this year. With the house being so new and everything out of place last year, it just didn’t fit into the plan, (though I totally loved our chalkboard tree) but this year we got one again. Third christmas, second tree. I think the cooler weather helps. We’ve gone back and forth between “cooler” days and eighty degrees for about a month now. The slight temperature change puts a big change in my mood… any day that I can turn off my AC and open the windows for cool air, I’m extra happy. And at night when the house is clean, the christmas lights are on, and we can open the windows to let the florida breeze in, it’s especially perfect to have christmas in south florida. Perfect for me anyway, I’m completely content in the tropics, admiring the snow through everyone else’s pictures 😉
