Christmas in July: A Photo Keepsake


If it is late Thursday/early Friday and you are reading this, congratulations! You have made it to the end of the Bloggy Giveaways Carnival! My last giveaway of the week is up for grabs…links for the four other Keepsake Ornaments are at the bottom of this post.

We love photos here at Casa de Crazy. BgK actually photoblogs continuously throughout the day. People call and ask how our trip to the zoo was before we are even home, because they are following us on the Internet. (In a grandma type way, not stalker. At least I think not stalker…)

Anyway, today’s ornament captures that very special first Christmas moment. I remember MAM’s first Christmas–she had five “special” outfits, I think, and mostly we dressed her up and put her in front of Christmas trees everywhere we went. It was still a grown-up Christmas–at four months old, she had no interest in the Christmas Magic or making lists or seeing (or being frightened of) Santa.

This year, I’m sure AFM’s first Christmas will be far less tranquil. For starters, I’m sure he won’t have five special outfits (boys are so different!), and mostly we’ll be chasing his sister, past any Christmas trees we might see, I’m sure.

But it will still be great. And it will be his first Christmas. And we will photograph it. Which finally brings me to today’s ornament–a Baby’s First Christmas Keepsake Ornament. Do you love it? Do you want it for a baby in your life? I do!
