Christmas footnote...

The presents are all unwrapped, our guests have gone home and Christmas was a huge success. A few thoughts-post excitement.

Christmas Cards: Every year we send out a cute card (see below)...this year I was FLOORED by some of the photos I received. The quality was better than the images I see in Vogue and Harper's! Artsy black and whites, children walking through flower filled fields, or standing on docks dressed all in white. Top of the line. Not to be outdone, I've hired Steven Meisel to photograph my children for next year's card! :)

Santa: As I was hiding in my basement wrapping gifts I thought about how Santa has been stealing my thunder and I was VERY tempted to skew the gift giving in Mom and Dad's favor. I somehow managed to resist the temptation to take the credit and I'm so glad I did. It's probably the last year my 8 year old will believe in Santa-and it was so priceless to see how happy she was opening those magical gifts from the Big Guy!

All in all it was a fabulous day, lots of cousins, lots of noise and I am sore as can be from boxing my 16 year old nephew on the Wii!

Hope your holiday was as fun as ours!

Isn't that boxing on the Wii a great workout?! My arms are so sore this morning. Of course, that could be because my husband is a competitive a$$ who won't quit until he's dominated every game. But that's neither here nor there.

Glad you had a good time!

So funny about the Christmas pic's, I've noticed that too. Ironically, the lady I hired to take my daughter's photo worked as Steven Meisel's assistant back when she was starting out as a photographer in NYC back in the '90's.( She's a SAHM now out here on Long Island and has a small photography business on the side).

My husband slipped and told his friend...in the presence of our 8 year old...that HE bought me an ipod. Luckily, he saw our daughter's face and quickly recovered by saying, "Hahaha...I just kiddiing. Santa brought it. I was just trying to take credit." Sigh...I think the magic is soon to be over.

Glad you had a merry Christmas. I thought your card was cute. When you have beautiful kids, who needs an expensive photographer - right?
