I read this great blog the other day which gave me the idea to use my interval setting on my camera for Christmas photos. We practiced Christmas Eve, well I first practiced with the kids Wednesday during the day. But we had a longer practice when we opened up one gift each on Christmas Eve.
Here are a few photos from Wednesday morning, and as you can tell I needed to adjust the focus, but that's what practice rounds are for, right?
And here is the Christmas Eve interval video: (sorry no music in the practice version)
My three favorite photos from that collection:
Miss Mary being goofy:
Christmas Eve night, mom and dad enjoyed some Moscow Mules while waiting for Santa to arrive (which according to Norad went through Brookyln Center at 12:00am)
Isaac left Santa one cookie and counted out eight carrots for the reigndeer. He also stayed up to write Santa a note
Santa dropped off the present while his 'elves' aka mom and dad set it up
Ready for the morning
Emma was so funny with her stocking, she took the things out and put it on her foot like a sock!
I got a selfie stick! YAH I can take family photos of all of use now.
Isaac going through his stocking taking a cash register break
Emma enjoying some of last years puppets while wearing her new baby carrier
More selfies :-)
Using the selfie stick to get a better angle of Isaac opening a present
Mary wasn't as into opening the presents as Emma was.
And Isaac literally was glued to the cash registered which was an open gift 'Santa' left.
But Mary was really into the Woodzeez house that Grandma Judy got them.
Here we are playing a game of Pop the Pig which came from Grandpa Del
Emma running around
Of course they all loved ever gift and we had a fun day of playing with everything!
Once the girls went down for a nap we watched our new movie Inside Out. Then Isaac worked on some new legos from Grandma Judy
He was pretty into them the rest of the night
And I got to use my new wrap!
Great day of playing at home in our jammies all day!
