Cohen, Cohen, Cohen

For our Christmas cards, we planned on using a family picture that my cousin at Photographie 51 took, however, during an impromptu photo shoot with Cohen one night, we found the greatest picture to use!

We also got some other great shots of him, and it was a lot of fun.  I think it’s nice when it happens more organically, instead of the pressure of posed photos when you NEED them to work.  🙂 This was definitely the case here!

So scroll on through for the scoop on our photoshoot!

How we spent our Christmas!

Posted on by thedesignary Posted in Blog | 1 Comment

We started our Christmas celebrations by doing lots and lots of baking on Christmas Eve.  I made spiced walnuts and no bake chocolate cookies.  Tim made his homemade fudge.  YUM!  Then we went to church together, which was great!  After the service, we were able to get a few pictures together, too, which is nice.  We actually got one last year, too, when Cohen was a teeny, tiny 10 day old baby.  So great.  Much like a lot of the other photos we take, I love being able to have a new “version” each year to look back on.

Some Winter Fun!

Posted on by thedesignary Posted in Blog | Leave a comment

Over the holiday season, there were a few things that just had to be checked off the list – including visiting Santa!  We hadn’t taken Cohen last year, because he was born on the 14th, and I figured handing him over to a Santa who had probably been sneezed all over multiple times was not the smartest idea.  So we wanted to make extra sure that we took Cohen to meet Jolly Ol’ Saint Nick this year – and what better place to do that than Bass Pro Shop!?  HUH?!  Yah, the idea seemed weird to me, too, but we had heard they turned the store into a winter wonderland and it was a great Santa visit.  What we didn’t hear, though, is that you’d potentially have to wait 3+ hours when you got there.  That happened to us.  And we didn’t want to wait.  We knew Cohen would get super grouchy without an afternoon nap.  But because we had never been to Bass Pro Shops we decided to make the best of the 45 minute drive we had taken, and we wandered around the store.  It was actually a pretty cool place and a fun afternoon!

They had these huge tanks full of fish when you walk into the store.  Cohen was super intrigued.

Crawling out of the Black Hole

Posted on by thedesignary Posted in Blog | Leave a comment

It may seem as though we’ve fallen into a black hole…but I suppose it’s the exact opposite.  We’ve been living…a lot.  We have been crazy.  I realize I got some serious blogging momentum in November, and then the holidays surrounded us, and blogging had to play second fiddle to living…and I’m ok with that.  As much as we love sharing, it’s been nice for both of us to take some time away from the computer, and just log some serious hours sitting on the floor, playing with Cohen, hanging out and doing all things Christmas-y!

So bear with me as I backtrack a bit to get you all up to speed to our lives in December!  I figured I would start off with my simple and awesome Advent Calendar I made in early December! It was fun and something we all got excited about!  We are busy editing photos and all that good stuff from all our other adventures last month.  It’s really crazy just how quickly December went.  I barely even had time to see it fly past.

Thanks for always checking in on us!  We have had a wonderful day already…and it’s just getting started!
