Late Christmas Post

Merry (late) Christmas and Happy New Year! I didn’t get the chance to make a Christmas post over the busy holiday season, but the Christmas season should last for the rest of today (being Three King’s Day) at least, especially with all the snow we got in New York (which, unfortunately, mostly melted today). Enjoy the late Christmas cheer! I’ll hopefully have more time to post now that the holidays are over 🙂

First Snow of the Season

I think we get the perfect amount of snow around here… Just enough to make it feel like a magical treat when it comes and not too much where we are overwhelmed by the amount or tired of seeing it all the time. To be honest, I wouldn’t mind if it snowed a little more often. Enjoy the pictures from our first snow day here in New York!

It was snowing and cloudy all day, until about 4 pm when the sun peeked out right before it set beautifully behind all the snow 🙂

The snow on the tree branch almost looks like a cotton ball!

Gingerbread House and Other Christmas Goodies

This year was our first year of making a successful gingerbread house! Unlike other years, this time it didn’t fall apart and the frosting dried nicely 🙂 It should be a tasty treat on Christmas!

I like the effect the lack of focus gave to this picture. It makes the foil on the candies sparkle more.

These candies almost look glittery!

Christmas Already?

Wow, it’s almost been a month since I last posted! I’ve been so busy!

Christmas, believe it or not, is right around the corner. I know a lot of people, including myself, are bummed that time passes so quickly, but we just need to take some time to enjoy the little things that happen in between the big things like the start of a new school year or the holiday season.

Here are some pictures to put you in the holiday spirit a little prematurely, but it’s such a time of joy and happiness that just pictures can bring you warmth any time of year. These were all taken at Cracker Barrel. They have the most beautiful and festive set up of any store I know.

A good tip for Christmas or Thanksgiving photography… Make sure you make the pictures look warm by upping the “temperature” in the picture. It makes it look warm and cozy like the wonderful time of year really is 🙂
