What I’ve been up to…
I’m super cheap… or frugal may be a nicer word.
Anyway, I took the kids photos for the Christmas card this year myself… It actually was pretty easy and the boys had fun with it. I was inspired by a photo that Nest of Posies shared.
Here are a few photos what we came up with. Having Louis in the photo made it hard because he can’t prop himself up. But I like what I came up with. A string of Christmas lights goes a long ways!
