Our Cozy Christmas Eve

Christmas Eve found us cozy at home, with our oven baking all day.  With the girls filling the air with anticipation for Santa and the oven filling the air with the sweet aroma of sugar cookies, I took my own advice from my eBook The Thoughtful Christmas: A Complete Guide To Intentionally Photographing Your Holiday Memories and dusted off my camera.  It’s an annual tradition for the girls to get their photos taken in their Christmas pajamas and they are photos that I always look forward too.

One of the best things about photographing our children’s everyday is that just one photograph can instantly take us back to that moment with them, giving us the gift of memories.  And this Christmas has us hoping we will remember it forever.  To remember the pure merriment and magic in our girls’ eyes, as they truly understood the meaning of Christmas.  To remember how our 3 year old wrote her name all by herself on her letter to Santa for the very first time.  To remember how they enjoyed each day of advent, as they moved their nutcracker closer and closer to Christmas and enjoyed finding Oliver, their Elf on the Shelf.

As a mama, I want these moments to last forever.  But the thing is, every day the girls are growing faster and faster.  So I pick up my camera and savor each moment, knowing these photos will fill albums I will cherish in the years and decades ahead.  While I thank God for these moments and for giving us our girls, I also thank Him for the gift of endless love and grace.  The gift that reminds us of the true meaning of Christmas.
