Little Things Thursday

Hey guys! Welcome back to Little Things Thursday. Can’t believe that Christmas in now truly upon us.   I’m excited though.  I love to be able to pull back this time of year and give myself little treats of movie watching or relaxing.  I haven’t actually started that yet, but I’m trying.

Also, I’m having to resign myself that Christmas cards are just not going to happen this year. I’ve been so busy on everyone else’s images that it is now just a bit too late.   I still love ya, but no cards this year.   My blog will just have to be one big Christmas card full of images.

One thing I love is seeing the holiday celebrations through your lenses.  Link up below to share your December’s beginnings.

  1. The time flies faster and the feel I too. And it has changed a lot in recent years: while previously wrote letters by hand, we are addressing today our blog right at all. This has many advantages, of course.
    But a handwritten letter or card to gain in value in today’s time because they are so rare. I still try to write. Sometimes even …

  2. I was just writing about the same thing, that sending out Christmas cards always ends up being the first thing I knock off my list when I’m overwhelmed by it, and need to just let some things go. I don’t know why I even say I’m going to do it anymore! haha

  3. Lovely shot! And ditto here on the cards, got too much else to do!!

  4. Lovely bokeh!

  5. He just has the sweetest smile!

  6. precious – absolutely precious! I suspect this will be another Christmas without cards again for our family as well. (one kid in Japan makes it a little hard to pull off the family photo card – blog will have to do!)

  7. Love that bokeh! His eyes sparkle even more.

    I love this time of year too, even though Chanukah is over tonight, the desire to curl up with a good movie and just be is around none the less!

  10. Oh Kim- I hear you & it’s okay to spend those moments you find with the family instead of pushing yourself to do more & more. Love this image – his angelic face is so comforting right now.

  14. Oh, it seems every year I put up less and less…sometimes it’s just overwhelming, and I don’t mind simple. By the weekend it should look a little like Christmas around here, and I do love taking pictures of light bokeh! 🙂

    This photo is so so sweet, oh that smile!

  15. When I invent my time machine…you’re coming with me, back to Paris when my kids were little…and you’re going to take LOTS of photos of them! {I’m hoping for some Christmas spirit by next week…hoping that decorations will help get me there this weekend!}

  16. Again…I know I say this often BUT…that son of yours and his eyes??!!??? I’d be taking photos of him all day long :). I gave up sending out Christmas cards 2 years ago. Felt guilty about it at first but, I’m surprisingly okay with it now.

  17. handsome child!

  18. Your son is a picture of Christmas with his soft sweet eyes against the twinkling lights. Really beautiful Kim. We don’t have our tree up yet I’m afraid (sigh)… but the good news is that my husband and I took an evening off of working last nite to curl up to a movie instead 🙂 P.S. I’m SO impressed that you’ve got the majority of your Christmas shopping done, bravo!!
