For Christmas, I made Carter a Knight in Shining Armor costume, which he said makes him Prince Edmond. He just happened to have the movie Prince Caspian playing in the background while he opened it, which seemed appropriate.
The lion on the front is a copy of the Finnish national emblem, but Carter was excited that it looked just like the flags from Narnia. : )
A rare moment of sweetness between the slashings of the sword:
Carter went out in the backyard and trained on a trash can. He may only be 3 1/2, but I have never seen someone so ready for battle before.
Here’s his “pretending to die” series. He let me know that he can’t actually die, because the “chainmen” (chain-mail) protects him.
Tim and I bought a gingerbread house kit the year we got married…which was 3 years ago. It had been in various kitchen cabinets until we finally pulled it out this year! Two perfectionist creative people working on the same gingerbread house at the same time? It actually worked out very well… : )
Here are a some picture of the process of getting it all together…
Tim gets all the credit for this lovely stick person…
Voila! The finished product on the wall above our kitchen table : )
…for family Christmas pictures! I recently took some pictures for a few of my coworkers and their families. These nurses clean up pretty nice, don’t you think?
First was Karen and 9 of her family members at Heritage park:
Remember Randi and Andy from their maternity shots? Here they are with their adorable little boy, Brooks:
These pictures of Daniella and 10-year-old Felix were taken the day before he donated over 1 foot of his hair to the childhood leukemia foundation. Pretty cool, right? We had to capture his super long locks before he chopped it all off!
