thePROJECT – December 23

A few days before Christmas, we were busy with festive activities and so I decided to try a little Christmassy set-up with Emerson.  We live in a country where it’s not cold for summer, it’s [usually] hot, although most of the imagery associated with Christmas involves snow.  SO.  I decided to create some.  (Thanks to a can!!)

It was pretty amusing as my boys have never actually seen snow in ‘real life’, however something we hope to change next year.

So below is the official image in thePROJECT’s series, and a few ‘outtakes’ as they are just too cute!

Chilling out on the couch.  Getting ready for a BIG weekend!

thePROJECT – December 21st

Finally, we had the chance to take the boys to meet Santa.  I know many parents will know that with young ones, this can be a mission!  Firstly, it was 6pm, but the boys were very excited.  They even changed into their Christmas t-shirts, and walked up to Santa and proudly showed off their new light sabers (which Ash even hugs while he sleeps) and then sat on his knee, and SMILED for the camera.  Mission accomplished!

I took along my camera, knowing the set-up at the shopping centre was gorgeous.  There was Rudolph.  I asked Eman to give him a kiss on the nose.  One frame, and a perfectly cute image!

thePROJECT – December 20th

We love star wars.  Today the boys got a christmas present early from our gorgeous neighbours… (AKA Ash’s girlfriend).  And Light Saber’s are the only “weapons” allowed in our house.  It seems these days no matter what hero’s our children like, there is some form of violence.  We cannot hide from it.  It’s dragon fighting, martial art panda’s, super-hero families.  But I guess the reason that Star Wars weapons are ok in my eyes, there are not that many “jedi knights’ out there, at least, that we know of;)

I’m sure my 2 have a good chance… here we have Luke Skywalker, and Darth Vader.

thePROJECT – December 19th

Finally, someone was still!

9 times out of 10, I get compliments on how gorgeous my “daughter” is.  For some reason it’s really easy to look at his hair and assume that “he’s” a girl.  The clothes and boyish shoes don’t give it away…  So some people wonder why I don’t cut his hair so he’s more “boylike”.  Well.  Would you cut off these gorgeous curls!?  Because I sure can’t!
