sick at christmas

I took these images just a few days after Christmas when we were all recovering from the flu and when iPads and the DS are a mama’s best friend.

This is hands-down the most honest picture I’ve ever posted. My house… mid-flu, after-Christmas, mess and all. I am pretty sure some of you can relate to the chaos. It was enough just to get through Christmas Day. I love our families but I think I took three naps Christmas Day without meaning to… I hope they forgive me.

And I wish I could say that my house looks different right this second but minus the Christmas decorations, it’s pretty much just the same. Seems like there’s always chaos with my four around…

the next photographer in this series is the immensely talented Celeste Jones | Wilmington Delaware Children Photographer . I am so proud to call her my friend and cannot wait for her visit to the farm!

JennyO - These are great images showing the reality of family life. I was just wondering what you shot these on (film and camera?)
