It was a chilly day – a little TOO chilly for the little ones!

Sometimes – with little ones – and chilly mornings – THIS is the best you get!

He was NOT willing to kiss his sister – but a HUG!

CHRISTMAS! Over & done with – ALREADY!!

Over Thanksgiving – Jared & Fitzy went to a Lakers game in Cleveland – so that was most of Fitzy’s Christmas present!!

BUT – he knew he would have a few gifts under the tree!!

Board games & basketball shoes & a HOT WHEELS set & more games. Books & socks & a watch.

We took Jared’s parents to Corning to make a Christmas tree or a snowman for Christmas! The boys picked trees – the orange one is Enoch’s!

Those Barden brothers. They are something else!

Enoch & Fitzy shopped at the thrift store shop their school held! Fitzy got his brother a floor puzzle – he got Jared a book & he got me two necklaces.

Enoch got Jared a book & me an ornament. They spent a total of $2.50 – it was THE BEST!!

After presents – we spent the morning with the neighbors!

Fitzy read the Christmas story this year. Sometimes I forget that he can read!!

The boys were QUITE surprised about their video games!!

We had a relaxing Christmas with our families! HOW WAS YOUR CHRISTMAS!?

Krissy messaged me in the beginning of November hoping I might be able to photograph her daughter and her boyfriend over Thanksgiving!

I knew I would be at my parents – but I also knew I HAD to come back to Mansfield for this session!!

It was COLD. It was RAINY. But – do you see those smiles!? It didn’t matter!!

We went in their barn for a little break from the rain!

GORGEOUS!!

Emily & her sister – Grace. When I came into their lives – they were kiddos – LITTLE kiddos! Emily & her momma!!
