I really was going for one of those classic "under the Christmas tree" photos here. You know the kind you find in your parents photo albums? The little ones are still a little too wiggly. I will try again next year. Although I must say this picture of Sloan makes me laugh. She is such a goof ball.
Aris was mesmerized by the tree. She even helped to put up ornament. I think this is the reason she hasn't tried to take any of them off. They aren't mysterious anymore.
Sloan choreographed a series of photos, this was one of them, "Ok Zoe, now lets do like this by the tree, no over here. Ok Mom take the picture." It was very funny.
It is silly that it took a Christmas tree to make me feel the spirit of Christmas. There are so many who have so little. I will be working on some handmade gifts tonight. Just a few more days until we leave for San Diego. I miss all of my family so much, I can hardly wait to see everyone on Saturday. Only wish my parents and siblings lived closer.
