Warning: This post is a full-on mom moment. As I mentioned in my December Moodboard post, last Saturday at the crack of dawn (ok, it was 9:00 a.m.), we convened at Vans headquarters to take photos for our holiday card. I thought it would be fun to share some out takes from the shoot. >> Eames having a "strike a pose" moment (on tilt), Townsend being a true boy and messing with the props, brother + sister love, and the kids completely over mom's little project ... Until I broke out the buttermilk donut. I'm not above bribing. Ack!
The gold pom pom I made for Eames ended up bigger than her head! She wore it, with a little coaxing from the stage mom. I also made a black paper crown for Townsend's head, but he wasn't feeling it. Models! In the end, I used Tiny Prints for the design and printing of the holiday cards. We should receive them soon, and I will plan to share the final photo next Friday. Can you stand it?
Anyway, let me get to the moment you've all been waiting for: The winner of my cute little blog anniversary giveaway is ...
Callie of Call Me Cal. Congratulations, girl! I will be in contact.
Picking the winner was extremely official - I put each of your names on a slip of paper, threw the slips into a wooden bowl, and had my son pick a winner. [wink] Thanks everyone for all the birthday and blog anniversary wishes, and for playing along. You made this girl feel super special. Happy Friday and have a wonderful weekend, my friends!
