Christmas Eve at our house

Christmas Eve at our house is always a fun time.
We usually have an assortment of appetizers in place of a real dinner.
Someone (I won't say who) ate their body weight in spicy chicken wings.  :)
Every year the kids are allowed to open one gift.  
This gift is their Christmas PJ's.
Jack kept asking if we were getting PJ's again this Christmas.  I said, "well, you will have to wait and see."  His response was not what I expected.. He actually said he would be disappointed if he didn't get new PJ's on Christmas Eve.
I'm happy the kids are liking the traditions I have set up for them.  
These aren't the greatest quality of photos. 
The light in this room is awful, but I managed to capture some fun shots.

Thanks Target for the awesome selection of coordinating PJ's in all sizes.  :)

A little black and white...

Lately, I've been trying my hand at black and white photos.
I love the timeless feel of black and whites.
Here's just a few from recent months...
all of my Lucy, she's the only one who still likes me to take her photo.  :)

I realized I never posted this photo from Lucy's 11th birthday.  
I'm hoping to get caught up before the new year.

France Photos... (finally)

I was able to sit down an edit some, not all of our France photos.
I swear, I will never again shoot RAW on a family vacation, JPG would be so much easier.
I decided to divide our photos into two groups..
Places and People...
Here are the "places" photos.
I'm going to try to get the others done this week.
There are too many photos to upload here one by one, so I made a collage.

This one is my favorite collection of homes, doors and pathways...

This is my fav collection of Eiffel Tower photos..

 This is my favorite group of "around Paris" photos...
I was blown away by the architecture.. truly beautiful!
