the christmas photos

ahh i can't express the amount of love i have for this season!! everything about christmas just makes me fall in love with this season every day, including christmas pictures, which went surprisingly well this year. i was expecting lots of tantrums, refusals, and crying, but i am thrilled to announce that we only had one tantrum, we got our christmas card picture on the first try, and the rest went really smoothly. #handpraiseemoji

okay, on to the good stuff.

the one tantrum i told you about ^^^. she was so mad she couldn't hold all 20 bulbs at the same time.

we almost made it through the whole thing without something ending up in a mouth.
one of our Christmas traditions is to get an ornament every year, and this one is perfect! we got it from this amazing shop!

and the moment you've all been waiting for.... ;)
