Advent Idea

Yeah, I know it's a little late for it this year (unless you do a 7 days before Christmas count down), but I saw this cute idea on TV and thought I'd share with those interested!


Clear plastic ornaments (I've seen them at JoAnn's all year)
Gold tinsel
Assorted small toys or candies
Circle reinforcement stickers
White vinyl numbers, 1-2” in height
Gold ribbon

Getting Started

1. Place tinsel and gift inside ornament (hiding the gift as much as possible).
2. Attach gold sticker to the bottom of the ornament to ensure it remains closed.
3. Attach vinyl number to the front of the ornament.
4. Cut a piece of gold ribbon and thread through hole on top of ornament to hang.

Little Lena

We tried another indoor photo session and did blessing pictures of Lena and a three generation shot, and then of course some with the cute mama Charli. :)

The Deer Hunt

Nate's other true love in life is hunting (I'm the other love, in case you didn't figure that out). I always hear the stories of how they hiked straight up a mountain and saw this huge buck, and so on, but finally I got some pictures from Nate's friend that went with him. Thanks Sean! Hope you all enjoy them as much as I did. Nate did get a 3 point -- I think that's right, you'll have to ask him. :) We also enjoyed some venison stew the other night, it was delicious.

Baby Lena - 16 days old

So, here is my first tiny baby photo session. It was hard work, let me tell you. Little Lena didn't really want to sleep that much so we weren't able to try some of the poses I really wanted to, but we still got some cute shots. She is a beautiful baby! Way to go Charli & Aren!
