He’s at that magic age where there is nothing specific on his list, but he is excited about everything! Lately, he loses it (in the best way) when I bring him home cool socks.

Pinhole Press A Year in Review Photo Card

I love taking our Christmas pictures each year and I love getting loads of mail that isn’t bills each December. It has always been one of my favorite holiday traditions. I look forward to it all year long.
