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!

Awwww…they are so cute! And that Santa???? AMAZING!How is the studio going?
The studio is doing well. I have quite a bit of appointments (weddings, newborns, maternity and senior portraits) set up in the New Year (which I better get as many as I can seeing that 2012 will be the cut off with the end of the world and such) I am crossing my fingers that some word of mouths came through!Miss you girl! We'll have to skype soon
Our babies are our blessing. What sweet girls you have. Sorry you got stranded on Christmas.
Sounds like you made the best out of a tough December. I really like how your five year old though to throw Baby Jesus a surprise party – adorable! Happy New Year!
