New Shower
December 30, 2009

One of David’s favourite presents this Christmas was from Joe’s cousin Jenny, who bought him his own shower!  It attaches to the side of the bath and sucks up the water, and he can press the button to fire water at himself, or his poor cousin who was sharing the bath with him.

Snowball
December 29, 2009

I’m not usually permitted to take photos of Snowball.  Today, though, she was unfazed by the flash and played with Joe without noticing what I was doing.  It’s highly unusual for this grumpy, camera-shy little girl, anyway.

Sparkling Eyes

David LOVES Christmas.

I don’t usually shoot with a flash: I’d never been taught how and I hated the way the on-camera flash made the pictures look.  Today, my brother-in-law lent me a flashgun, and I realised what I’d been missing!  I’ve ordered one and I can’t WAIT for it to arrive!  (Canon Speedlite 430EX, if you’re interested.)

I’ve written more about today over at Barefoot in the Kitchen.

Birthday Boy
December 24, 2009

David turned one yesterday.  While I’ve been wrestling with the decision to only have one child, he’s been eating cake, opening presents, and generally having a wonderful time being spoiled.  (Yes, his birthday present is wrapped in Christmas paper.  No, he doesn’t care.  It RIPS!)

On The Phone
December 20, 2009

David’s current favourite game is to pretend to talk on the phone.  When he can’t get access to the real one, which he does with surprising ease, things like Duplo bricks have to suffice.

My Boys

Taken at our favourite soft play centre in Banbury.  I’m not sure what I’ve done to deserve two such photogenic boys, but aren’t they wonderful?

Monochrome Baubles
December 6, 2009

I love Christmas.  More specifically, I love Advent.  I love the anticipation, the build-up to Christmas.  This isn’t our tree, because we haven’t kitten-proofed sufficiently to buy it yet, but I can’t wait to get it and decorate it and then take hundreds upon hundreds of photos of it.  That’s the best part.

Wasn’t me!

Here is my gorgeous, walking, talking baby boy.  He enjoys destroying bathrooms with the help of his ginger sidekick, Eric.

Striped Long Socks

I love these socks.  They’re warm and comfortable and best of all, STRIPEY!

Christingle Service

…and the best part of the Christingle service is that you get to eat the sweets!
