Me! Me! Me! (waving hand)
Yep, how's this for productive. Had the girls dressed and outside for a photoshoot by 8am haha. That's what happens when they wake up at 5:30!
This year I was bound and determined to have my cards done EARLY! I want to have them all addressed and ready to send out right after Thanksgiving. So today I made and ordered them...yay!
Unfortunately, as though it's not hard enough to get a 1 year old and 3 year old to stand still for a picture, I decided to attempt a more complicated holiday card that involved holding items. (um, yeah, what was I thinking!?) So not only did I have about 1 million pics where one girl wasn't looking, but then out of the tiny handful of pictures where they were looking I had to find ones where they were properly holding their items and not making weird faces.
Needless to say this card is kind of a hot mess lol. But it's done and checked off my to do list!
I'll save the big reveal for December, but here's a sneak peek at a couple outtakes....enjoy!
|And no, neither girl was *supposed* to be doing this!|
I also have our pool table COVERED in toys to photograph and sell this week. Anything that isn't a favorite toy, played with at least once a week (really played with...not just dumped out haha), is being sold! I want only our favorite toys left so that when I redo our playroom after Christmas it's manageable. I also want money to buy the girls toys they really want!
Lastly, after naptime this afternoon we are doing our spa day, as I mentioned yesterday. However after I posted I realized maybe some of you thought I meant we were going to an actual spa lol. Really the "spa" will be in our kitchen---I'm going to let them play with my old makeup, nail polish, and hair stuff. Although when they are older I'd love to take them to a real spa for a girl's day! One of the great things about being a mom to girls---probably won't catch many elementary school boys hanging out with their mom on a Saturday, but I bet my girls would be happy to join me for a spa day at that age! :-)
