Christmas Pictures

My holidays wouldn't be complete without sharing a few pictures I captured of our grandchildren, Avery Grace, six years old, and her baby brother, Maddox, who is 4-1/2 months old.

It makes my heart sing to watch Avery and Maddox interact with each other.

Every time Maddox sees Avery, he smiles ... and she loves him dearly, and is constantly kissing him and talking "baby talk" to him.

Doesn't he look mischievous in this picture!

Avery making Christmas cookies ...

I love the way she purses her mouth as she concentrates. Sometimes, you can still get a glimpse of "babyness" in her little face. I know it's fleeting, and I don't want to miss one of those little glimpses.

In the next picture, she looks even older than her six years ...

While I prefer more candid shots, Avery likes to "pose" every now and then ...

Maddox in his "pensive" mode. If only he could talk!

I hope you were able to capture some pictures during the holidays, because, as poet Edgar Guest so wisely said ... "In photographs only can yesterdays live."
