Portraits of my Children | 49/52


Week 49! We are so close to the end of the year now and I just cannot believe how quickly it’s going. Lyra’s photo this week was taking near the beginning of the week whilst we were busy packing and preparing for our little holiday to Wales. Athena’s was taken just yesterday on our first day of said holiday and I think you can tell the difference in my state of mind!

Lyra’s was taken whilst she was playing with her plastic animals which is one of her favourite things to do at the moment. I was busy running round and she was being such a sweetie entertaining herself, I just had to stop and snap this photo of her concentrating. I love how crazy her hair is in it. After spending almost two years with no hair as it simply refused to grow she’s making up for it now!

I am so excited for Athena’s first Christmas. Once we’d arrived in Wales Lyra helped her Grandma decorate the Christmas tree and I just had to snap this picture of Athena in front of it. Her first Christmas tree experience! We’re heading to Bluestone this week and I can’t wait for all of the festive goodness that we have planned.

Linking up with What the Redhead Said and her Living Arrows. You can catch up on previous weeks here.
