Eulalie: This is the first year that she's really managed to grasp the idea of Christmas. She's a little excited... but very wary of the big strange man in red. Today we will be writing him a letter to politely request that he doesn't sneak into the house on Christmas Eve... "just leave the presents outside and go".

Marguerite: Helping decorate her first tree, in her own little way. Two seconds later she tried to eat that decoration.

Thank you for popping by and keeping me company this year. The support, encouragement and advice you so generously offer is accepted with much gratitude. From our family to yours - may your Christmas be safe and joyous and may your bellies and hearts be full.

I'll pop in with a final portrait next week... other than that, see you in 2014!

  1. "Just leave the presents outside and go" made me giggle. I remembering feeling the same concern as a child. Merry Christmas to you and your family. xx

  2. Merry Christmas! These two photos are just beautiful!

  3. Both adorable photos and the lighting adds to the classic story book pictures. Stunning...Regards Kathy A, Brisbane, Australia

  4. Beautiful pictures as always x

  5. I hope that you and your family have a merry and magical Christmas!

  6. So beautiful. Happy Christmas!

  7. My kid is also not so sure about Santa coming into her house. I mean, it makes sense, right, to be a bit weary of a strange old man sneaking into the living in the middle of the night! Lovely portraits this week!

  8. My Eulalie requested that all her gifts (she asked for a purple comb and a pink comb) be delivered by Mrs. Claus instead. Mrs. Claus complied.


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment - it really means so much. I will try to reply where I can! xx
