Connor and my red and white decorations

Deborah at Pictures Pots and Pens is hosting Family Fotos today. Please visit her for a list of bloggers posting favorite photos!

This week I would like to share some pictures of Connor on his second Christmas-and our first Christmas at our new home. These were made in 2003. I have always liked traditional red, green and white decorations. I've always like lots of berries too!


Connor has always been a active little boy! These two snapshots of him checking out the garland on the stairs are some of my very favorite photos of him.
Cooper is exactly the age now that Connor was when these photos were made. I can't wait to see his face when he sees the house decorated for Christmas!
This year I'm going to change things up just a bit and add a little something different to my decorations, so check back with me. Hopefully today I will be working on the tree!

Thanks for stopping by!

Diane, that is precious! I particularly love the last one where Connor looks like he's about to take a bite out of that berry. That's the cutest thing I've ever seen! Thanks for making my day!

XO,

Good morning Diane. I adore these photos of Connor. Check out his (third photo) concentration with his tongue. Priceless. Your tree and garland are beautiful. A traditional Christmas tree is so pretty. I always use berries too. Cooper will have fun too, exploring all the decorations.

I have to mention your header. It is adorable, especially with Cooper sleeping. I know who the stars are in your family. LOL. I am their biggest fan, next to you and your family. Smile.

Love...Jeanne

LOL! I love the last one..."hmmm, Mommy didn't do this quite right...let me fix it."

Your boys are darling and Conner is the boy I would have had if I had had a boy. (did you understand that?)

What a darling boy and full of personality!

Kelli@SassySouthernMom said...

I can't hardly remember him being that little,but he still looks the same doesn't he? I love the picture of him on the stairs where he's sticking his tongue out in concentration. I think it's one of our favorites.

Great pictures of Connor; and I love your red & white tree. Maybe this year you can get a Cooper picture in the rocking chair. It's neat to have things like that.

Dawn said...

What adorable pictures. I love red for decorating at Christmas time!

The bottom picture with Conner's tongue sticking out is a sure sign of a thinker. :) I still catch myself doing that on occassion LOL!
