Christmas Tittle Tattle

See what I did there? Christmas Tittle Tattle! It’s Christmas, but it’s also a Sunday, so I’ve done a little combo title. Utter genius.

I hope that you’re all having a wonderful day already, whether you celebrate Christmas or not – I’m writing this in advance, for obvious reasons, and am no doubt at this moment sitting in an armchair like a female version of Jabba the Hut, unable to move beneath my oversized baby bump.

Anyway, for your amusement and pleasure, here are some outtakes from the Christmas card shoot we did in our kitchen. It was utter chaos. Last year’s card was easier because the baby couldn’t crawl or walk – I just held her up to the camera wearing a knitted hat. This year there were tears and tantrums from the toddler, the dog chewed my UGG slipper and the cat, God bless him, just sat in dignified silence upon the makeshift studio floor, peering out from beneath his furry reindeer antlers.

    I LOVE IT!! Life in all its sublime, teeth-gnashing, heart-melting, love-inducing, chaotic quirkiness. Five-point penalty, tho, for no bell on Dexter’s tail…I hope your Christmas was happy. And, of course, magical for A. Although, she’s a little magical all on her own, isn’t she. Thanks for sharing a special time, Cheers.

    Haha, I really like this picture story. We always got a few pictures in school and had to write a story about what could have happened there….it kind of reminds me of that.
    Merry Christmas to you Ruth and your wonderful family!

    So funny. I love your sense of humor. And I like your blog particularly for the foundation reviews. You explain so well what they do, what they don’t, and you provide great photos as evidence. Thank you for all of that. Happy new year!

    The outtakes are always better than the finished product.
