And Christmas


My relationships with the camera has significantly changed in the past few years. My girls both protest to loathe pictures and I've moved into more of a present focused mode where I don't constantly think about documenting things. The result is fewer pictures and it's hard to say whether I'm ultimately at peace with that. But once or twice a holiday I put on my firm mommy voice and demand that my girls pretend for the camera that we're all happy and enjoying ourselves. Which was most certainly true before I made my request but not after. I can't decide if my favorite picture is Tessa's hidden protestation in the second picture or the gingerbread shot where Haley had to force-ably grab her face so she'd stop hiding behind her hands. So true to form.

It was a lovely holiday. Food, family, pajamas, and of course more food. Good times. Tessa requested gobs of art supplies and has been hiding in her room drawing ever since. Sylvie wanted all things Sims and has become even more of a screen zombie if that's even possible. What happened to my girls that wouldn't let me have a moment's peace to myself?
