December is a super busy month for us. At the end it always leaves you feeling like you just slid into first base and barely escaped getting tagged with the ball.
There are 2 birthdays with Christmas thrown in.
Our oldest daughter turned 5.
It’s been a good year for our Buzz. She is doing so much better in her socialization and speech. We are still awaiting a formal diagnosis as she is testing within Aspergers and/or Sensory Integration Dysfunction. She is really thriving in “country life” and getting to have her own dog. I am so proud of how far she has come this year. Even when she gets mad at me and stomps her feet and says “I don’t like you”; I have to cheer because she is articulating emotion. It hurts, but with 3 girls who are going to go through puberty; I better get used to it.
Next up I had a fun photo shoot with the best group of kids and Santa. Don’t try to tell me that this Santa wasn’t real because he just HAD to be! I had a blast watching all the kids sit on his lap and got the privilege of hearing a lot of their Christmas wishes. I loved watching their innocent belief in the magic of Santa. This is one of my favorite from the group of pictures. I am anticipating a good year in my studio for 2011…besides, Santa promised!
That’s about all for now. I am still dusting myself off from the December chaos and looking forward to the new year. I am also super excited because I am going to get to go to Blissdom this year after all. Let’s just say there IS a Santa! Hoping to get a “Year In Review” post knocked out in the next couple of days, until then….Toodles!
