Me and Mine {December family portrait}

January 5, 2014 at 10:52 pm 7 comments

This is so last year {wink}.  Sigh. Better late than never eh?
With festive gatherings a plenty through December how could we not have managed a December family snapshot?  Our friend Kev snapped these for us at his New Years Eve gathering half an hour from the stroke of midnight when it became apparent E was a sneeze away from collapsing in a heap.

It’s been lovely taking part in the monthly Me and Mine challenge.

    Ahhh, it’s so lovely to see all of your photos together like that. I get so proud thinking of what we’ve all achieved and the lovely record we have of our year. x

    Abzi – I’m so glad Lucy inspired us all to take part :o)

    Josie – thanks (blush blush)

    Lucy – and it’s all down to you getting us all inspired. So pleased to hear Me and Mine is continuing into 2014

    Charlotte – it was funny when my friend emailed them through as I thought that one looked stage yet we’d simply been doing that family thing of an overexcited reaction for the sake of a toddler, not really aware he was snapping us

    Bren – so pleased you’ve liked keeping up with the ever changing face of E.

    Oh how gorgeous to see all the pictures together! I’m hoping to do something like that when I hit the one year anniversary.

I love how an ordinary moment frozen in time by the camera can actually reveal so much. Luca is all about inhabiting his body and jumping, running and climbing. Euan is all about the quirkiness, curiosity and inventions. There's more about these best friend brothers on the blog in this month's #siblingsproject post #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
This little one is negotiating hard to get out of food shopping with me. Even saying that poor Daddy will be hungry if we don't restock the fridge isn't working. Apparently Daddy will be fine eating a wooden mushroom while L watches telly! #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog #toddlerantics💜
#mischiefmakers #summerreadingchallenge starts today - you can find out more at your local library. E was excited to sign up and work towards earning his medal. There are some great activities taking place in Gloucestershire libraries this summer. #welovereadingbooks #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
I'd love a packet of crisps the size of a pillow case to make the same toddler-to-Doritos bag ratio. #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog #toddlerliferocks
Love Saturday mornings. E's busy creating already with @geomagworld #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog

Happy memories of our Cornwall break last month at the start of this super sunny heatwave season. #lightroomstoriescontest #adobelightroom #nipitinthebudblog
Our first "soaked on the school run" selfie in a long long time! So many smiles and "yay, it's raining" from everyone in the playground ☔😄 #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
I think Luca was channelling his inner Monet when he painted his duck money box #2yearoldartist #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
I love finding pictures on my phone I'd forgotten about that remind me of a really special time with my boys (the Project Pilgrim celebration at @GlosCathedral a couple of weeks ago) #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
Love this kids creativity - there's only so many times you can tolerate your little brother interrupting your game of giant Connect 4 after all! #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
L fell asleep in the car today and stayed asleep when I got him out. I took this picture thinking I'd savour the moment and then wake him so that bedtime wouldn't be messy but just look at that face, I couldn't. So I enjoyed the cuddle instead and he's now snoring blissfully beside me again. Trust your baby, he knows what he needs 😴 #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
