hunt christmas extravaganza, ii.

Tuesday, December 4, 2012

so, we've managed the hunt christmas extravaganza two years in a row now which makes it a tradition, right?!  RIGHT. this year's weather was quite different than last's though... snow!  it began to snow the morning of THE EXTRAVAGANZA (which we did find an opportunity to say at least once every four minutes) and it was pretty perfect.  set the mood quite right!  again, we went to our favorite bagel place (french toast bagels, yes please!).  bagels all around and hot coffee for steve and i.  and then headed over to find us the perfect frasier fir.  and i daresay we did.  it's so pretty.  and now, all's festive here and nights with the christmas lights on and the mantle all dressed up and a candle burning sure feels cozy.  

i fear i'm gonna overdo the christmas-themed posts.  can you blame me?

(p.s. those of you who asked -- parker's boots are the ones found here!)

    Seriously. And could Lindsay look more casually poised in that picture of the three kids?

  14. Never fear about going overboard with Christmas posts!

    Also I have to ask... What sort of filters/editing software do you use for your pictures? I love the look they all have!

  15. @nicole, asos!

    @lauren jean allece, i play around with the curves in photoshop - only a little and it gives them a bit of a matte look. email me if u need more deets!

  17. I love that photo of all three of your kids standing by the tall post! So cute!! Especially Paker! Gosh, little kids get to me.
    And snow! That's lucky. Here in VA it was almost 70 degrees today! Crazy. And french toast bagels? I've never heard of those before, but they sound delicious! :)
