Comments Off on Christmas Family Photos | 2017

This year has no doubt been our fastest year yet. Possibly because of having three kids and also possibly because it was the first year that I freelanced all year long. I feel like our family has gone through so much since last year. We have grown through ups and downs and seen so much change in each of the kids. Ezra started grade three, Sophie is in her second year of preschool and Evelyn hit pretty much every major milestone (walking, talking, all the things). For the past three years we have had Christmas Family photos taken by Fraser Valley Photographer E Fraser Photo. I find it to be such a lasting way to reflect on the year.

This year our photos were postponed due to the rain and rescheduled. However, on our next scheduled date the weather was crazy again but we still decided to go for it. Thankful for our photographer, Erin Fraser, who was totally up for it and recommended the new photo location. As much as I loved the Christmas tree farm photos last year and the year before, I love that these photos can be printed and up all year round without being too “holiday”.

Thank you Erin Fraser Photography for capturing our real life moments. Let’s just say Evelyn was not in the mood for photos, but it didn’t matter. Erin captured some very precious moments and some couples photos that give me all the heart eyes. Thankful for this family of mine and so excited for making memories in 2018.

Last year we took photos like this with Erin and we had to do it again. This year, James is much less visible then last year.. and I think it might also be the last year he’ll be able to hold all three. Might have to try it again next year and see. (Photos from last year)

  • Just about to head to Whistler with this guy and so excited to spend some time just the two of us! It’s been a whhhiiilllleeeeeee
  • Part way through our lunch the kids started to bicker back and forth, creating a rather not-so-enjoyable moment for everyone. It's those moments that us as parents can make a difference, how we handle situations with our children allows them to learn and grow through our words and actions. We spoke about the importance of being kind and how much more enjoyable our time together is when we are all speaking respectfully and sharing. .

I then shared with the kids that that was exactly why I was taking a few pictures with our pizza, to share with others about the launch of @panago_pizza's 2nd annual Bullying Awareness and Prevention campaign. That Panago wanted to celebrate young people who are being kind and looking out for others in their communities. Our kids are learning everyday, it's our job to be great role models, encourage their kind behaviour and then celebrate them in their good choices. .

Do you want to take a minute to celebrate a child in your life? From now until Nov 25th Panago is asking for you to nominate a deserving youth and share a story them using compassion to drive change. Go to my stories for more info and the link to nominate #sponsored #asliceofnice
  • Hey 👋🏻 it’s kinda late... for some I suppose.. I’m usually up til midnight working away and wanted to hop on and share about my blog/small business journey. It was the start of this year that I really “proclaimed” this as my business and really felt so proud of what I’d created. It’s been A LOT of work to say the least but it’s brought so so much joy, opportunities and relationships. I love creating and sharing here, but most of all I love encouraging and connecting with YOU! Thanks for being here and for reading this. I think today I all the sudden realized we were in November and the end of the year is near. How did that happen?! If you made it through this little love note, share something about you below.. maybe how you discovered my blog/Instagram or what a goal is that you have? Excited to read through those comments in the AM.
  • That day we found a marble staircase and @juliechristinephotography made a fart joke. She gets me.
  • Proud mama moment. Sophie came home from kindergarten one afternoon reciting this Remembrance Day poem over and over. It’s pretty cute! Turn your sound on and listen too 😊❤️
  • This picture makes me melt. I set the camera on self-timer and wanted to get some action shots of the three of us working on the "do try this at home" section of the @guinnessworldrecords book. When I looked back at the captures and I saw Ezras very content grin, I just couldn't even. Seriously no words. It reminded me that our kids don't care how we show up (myself pictured with a messy bun & PJs), it's the time we put in that is remembered. •

#ad Thanks to @guinnessworldrecords for encouraging us to attempt one of their 5 maker challenges and seeing how much fun the kids had blowing up balloons and learning to make balloon dogs. After a few tries I completed on in 2 minutes, might not be the fastest time in the books, but we saw some good progress from my first attempt ha! If your kids love creating, reading about all sorts of random and crazy accomplishments then head to the blog and check out what's new in the Guinness World Records 2019 edition. #GWR2019
