December Daily 12/3

I didn't take any pictures of yesterday's activities, but I'm going to journal about my favorite guilty holiday pleasure (Peppermint Mocha's from Starbucks - which I do have a picture of!)

Today, I decided to to try and take pictures of the girls under the tree for a Christmas card. We'll call it "Attempt 1." *Note to self, check Ava's face before taking pictures, she's messy.

"Attempt 1" lasted about 7 minutes before Ava had enough. Next time: bribery with chocolate.

I also tried another Coffeeshop action "eye bright" on Ava's photo. There was a difference from the original to the editted photo, but I'm not sure it's totally right yet. Still learning.

Peppermint Mochas are my guilty pleasure too. Since I can't afford the daily habit, I've resorted to buying the peppermint mocha creamer and adding it to my coffee - it's not bad ;)

Good luck getting that Christmas card pic. I'm so glad we had somebody take ours because I can never get all of them looking. Well maybe I should wait to get them back before I say that!

OMG, Jamie---I do the SAME thing. The creamer isn't bad at all, but I also melt some chocolate chips in the bottom of my mug before I add the coffee---just for good measure. ;)

Love the pics., Maria! I spend entirely too much time photo editing!

I have two bottles of peppermint mocha creamer in the fridge. I may get one more before the season ends!

My guilty pleasure is the peppermint kisses that Jamie used to make advent calendars for Jack's birthday party favors. Yes, they're for the girls, but would they really notice a day or two missing here and there? O:-)
