Gideon and the "Jahcobs"

My nephew Gideon officially calls all his uncles "Errett" and all his cousins "Jahcob." Because he's cute like that.

Sharing the iPad. (sort of)

Make shift sheet hammock. (Held by obliging uncles and Gaga.)

Christmas Card Shoot 2012

I bought 2 chocolate advent calendars from Aldi and decided to sacrifice them for the possibility of a messy/cute photo op. I showed the boys how to open the doors and how to get the candy out, and stood back hoping they would go to town and share some chocolate covered smiles of glee with the camera. Of course, nothing ever quite goes as planned. Alexander was fixated on keeping all the little doors closed! They both mostly wanted to get up and play with the lights we had set up to try for pictures without the flash. And since I'm still really a camera n00b, not using the flash made for much grainier photos than I would have preferred. But here are some of the best ones we got. Can't really go wrong with cuteness of this caliber, even if I've given up on getting them to look at the camera. :-)
