capturing christmas

There’s lots of itty bitty moments all leading up to Christmas, isn’t there? Are you taking the opportunity to record them? Well, by golly, you should!

This year I have been taking more photos than I ever have, thanks to having an iPhone on me at all times. I’m not necessarily doing a December Daily, but I’ve been trying to take more of a conscientious effort to capture just little moments, like shopping with my girls in Bath+Body Works or a moment like this one…


Watching White Christmas after a never-ending snow day. It’s one of our favorites–and by that I mean, the girls and I. Not the boys. ;) We watch it every Christmas season, aaaaand sometimes in other parts of the year because it’s just plain fun.

That’s why I loved what Laura did in her page here. Not only did she capture her daughter wearing a Santa hat, but she did it every year. That is so awesome! I love how they are all displayed here on one page. Look how much she’s grown!

And how darling is that star border!!!

Great idea Laura!
(It’s too late for me. Maybe one day when I have grandkids? lol)

    What a cute idea! Love the layout elements too.

    I’m so glad you love White Christmas too! I finally got my own copy last year for Christmas from my mom. Love it. My husband won’t sit down and watch it with me, but I sure make time for it! I grew up watching it with my mom on Deer Hunt weekend when we would turn it on, wrap Christmas presents, and enjoy. (Yeah, my mom was crazy for having Christmas bought and ready to wrap in October. I totally don’t follow her lead on that one). :) Thanks for reminding me I need to pop that one in and watch it soon!
    I also love that page, and love the tradition of wearing the Santa hat. Love pictures that compare time/age.

    What a great idea!! But Kerri, I don’t think it’s too late for you to start a tradition like that with your kids. They still will change from year to year, so 10 years from now when you look at the pictures, you still can reflect on the changes and memories….just my thought!!
