Making Christmas Traditions

We had a busy, busy weekend here!  We spent all day Saturday shooting little models for future advertising and to try out our Christmas setup for Mini Sessions.  Perfect for Christmas cards!  🙂

We are getting closer and closer to the holidays and I can’t wait!  Our little twins will be 2 this Christmas and I’m so excited to start sharing more holiday traditions.  Growing up, Christmas was an important time for family and traditions and I have so many precious memories.  My mother was so happy to spend their first two Christmas’s with Liam and Lennon and I am comforted to know that she will be with them for all of their Christmases, if only through a recording of her voice reading Christmas books to them.  If you haven’t seen those recordable books that they sell at Hallmark, find them!  My heart is full to know she will always be with us on Christmas Eve.

What Christmas traditions do you have?  What do you do to prepare for Santa?  What good do you do for others in the season of giving?

I will be giving away (yes, FREE) 3 Christmas Mini Sessions!  The free sessions will be held in November.  All you have to do to win a free spot is to share this blog post on your facebook page and comment on this blog post to let me know that you have shared it.  I will pick 3 entries at random to receive a FREE Christmas Mini Session!
