our christmas

Christmas was heaven this year.
The husband is a spoiler, for me & lex.
he kinda got jipped this year, sorry ty

I have been struggling with different problems with my camera or lenses the past couple of months and i have been longing for a new lens! He waited for a good 10 minutes before he even brought me my present in. Making me wonder if he really did make the splurge, and he did.
and i was super thankful and could not appreciate it more!!

I get that camera equipment is expensive,
especially now since I am not taking on photo sessions any longer.

But capturing beautiful little memories of our family in pictures is priceless to me,
and worth every penny.
so thank you ty!! i love it and appreciate it more than you will ever know!

I wanted to capture lexi's christmas in video so I made a small little clip
to remind me of her that christmas morning, when she was 2.
I am pretty sure this is going to be our new christmas family tradition.

We looked like paparazi all lined up, me, my mom, and dad...
all with cameras & cell phones up and ready..
lex got a little embarrassed when she came down stairs..
oh and don't mind my husbands matching pj's with lex ;)

it's so different holding christmas at our place.. kinda not the same as my parents!
Christmas Eve,
we picked up last minute things & went out for lunch,
got Christmas Eves dinner ready/my mom & ty did..
got everything finished for Christmas morning, headed to Tyson's grandparents for the nativity reading, came home made Santas Cookies, watched a video from Santa, set out the cookies & milk and Santas Key, had a late night snack, and tucked baby girl in bed!

Christmas Day,
Woke up to presents, played with every. single. one.
lexi's only request all season was that she wanted a slide..
my mom fixed Christmas dinner, went on a drive to see Christmas lights,
then decided to go to a movie (guilt trip) -lexi did amazing & i LOVED just being with my family and enjoyed just being at the movies -it used to be one of my traditions growing up but it's been hard to keep up with it since Lexi was born.
then enjoyed our last night with my parents

city lights with my family

an all time must during the holidays is:
family, shopping, city lights, and santa


and of course,
lexi wasn't so sure about sitting on santas lap
even though she gets so excited to see him..
so we made it a family pic with Santa this year
we don't want to make Santa scary or scarring
