How was your Christmas? Tell me what you got! Anything super unique, or just the usual basics? I had to do a quick post telling you about my new love…
I’m beyond excited about getting an official camera for blogging purposes! Woohoo! Santa sure was good to me. I definitely have a lot to learn, but I am loving this process and can’t wait to learn more. I thought it was only fitting to start with a photo of me using my new camera.
Here are some of the first photos documented on the Canon Rebel T5i!
We enjoyed Christmas morning at my parent’s house and did our usual Christmas Traditions. Meaning, we drank lots of delicious coffee from cute Santa mugs, saw what Santa brought us, and looked for the hidden pickle ornament.
The Tradition of the German pickle is to have the adults hide the pickle ornament on the tree after all the other ornaments have been hung. After, the kids search the tree and the kid who finds it gets an extra gift from St. Nicholas. This year, I found it! One whole dollar for me! And yes, I still qualify as the kid 😉 Ha. I think it will remain that way until little ones join the family.
I even snuck in some photos under the mistletoe. Colton was more into the elaborate dips versus a smooch but he at least played along!
I’m obsessed with this new trench coat by Michael Kors, purchased at R Meyers in Nichols Hills. You might as well go ahead and get used to this trench because you will be seeing A LOT more of it. Whats so great about this trench is that it will go with everything!! This trench has some great pockets and fun gold zippers. It also actually brings some warmth and wind breaking, which is great for Oklahoma in the fall time and basically any other season because it’s so unpredictable.
Got in some good snuggles and pets with the puppies, King Arthur and Lady Guinevere. These dears officially belong to my parents but I count them as mine too. And, then I got to hang with my niece pups Minnie and Belle. They are all sweet Shelties besides the King who is a fabulous, playful mix of breeds we don’t know. As you can see, Arthur doesn’t like to share any love with the other pups and will bite your hand if you even dare, or he may just be jealous of my beautiful new trench coat!
What are some of your favorite Christmas traditions?
