Cranberry Mint

Saturday, December 17, 2011

 Have you planned your holiday outfit yet? If you're tired of the same red and green, try pairing unique shades of red and green with another unexpected color.


Today,  I experimented with cranberry and mint with navy and I'm loving the effect. It's festive enough for the holidays and translates well into different seasons.


 We went to Bass Pro to take the kids to see Santa or "Chem-a" as Olivia calls him. Olivia was excited at first but that didn't last. As soon as the flash went off, Rhys started to cry, which made Olivia cry. They looked pretty freaked out in the picture but we got them both to look at the camera so that's pretty miraculous! Considering that this was our first Santa visit, I think it went pretty well. I snapped the beginning of the big melt down after the flash went off.


 After Santa, Olivia rode the carousel with her Daddy while Rhys and I watched. She was in absolute heaven!


 Rhys looked so adorable in his little outfit, a shower gift from his Aunt Amanda. Olivia's Christmas dress was from Costco earlier this year.
