Last weekend, we did our annual Christmas Tree Farm photos, and although our shoot was literally nine minutes long (more important things to do: feed geese & go on sleigh ride), we managed to get tons of happy smiles from the kiddos! So happy to have these year after year, it is so fun to look back on them & is such a reminder of how precious every single day is with our babies. Harper was Claire’s age the first year we did these, and I am positive that couldn’t have been more than a few months ago. So bittersweet!

I just love these people of mine, so so so much. I want to bottle these days up & keep them forever.
This afternoon we finally gathered all of our supplies to make our gingerbread house, the girls couldn’t wait one more second to do it, so we got right to work. After Eloise declared how much she LOVED the “banjo-man” house, I thought it would be fun to ask them a little bit more about Christmas and save their sweet little answers for just about ever.
What is on your Christmas list?
Harper: I asked Santa for dolls and another toy mouse. And some paint and food for my kitchen. And a blanket or something for Claire since she can’t tell Santa anything.
Eloise: Paint like Harpie. And babies and reindeer cookies.
Harper: Oh! And when I told Santa my list, he told me he had snapchat! *cue chorus of giggles from both girls*
What is the best part about Christmas?
Harper: Christmas lights everywhere and it’s Jesus birthday!
Eloise: Jesus likes Christmas lights?!
Where does Santa live?
Harper: At the North Pole!
Eloise: In a BIG castle.
What are the names of Santa’s reindeer?
Harper: Rudolph. And Dasher, Dancer & Fancy!
Eloise: Eloise Ruby Garvin.
What do you think Santa’s favorite food is?
Harper: Candy canes & pancakes definitely.
What will Santa bring mommy & daddy for Christmas?
Harper: Probably coffee and a blanket. And beef jerky for Dad.
Eloise: *can’t speak because mouth is full of marshmallows*
Also, we swear Claire said Santa and Candy Cane this week, so that was her contribution to the fun Christmas conversations to remember!
