Group photos: Theme Thursday (plus news about the December schedule)

Yay!  Who’s having fun with these portrait themes?  I really love looking at all of yours, so thanks for linking up!

Before we get to the real group photo for this week, Here’s the “group” I’ve been hanging out with in the evenings.

Why, yes, I have joined the Peg Doll Craze of 2015, thanks for asking. I joined a swap and painted the Risen Jesus (23 of Him, in fact!), but then I stumbled upon this post on a peg doll Nativity set and I decided that I wanted to paint one as an Advent gift for my kiddos. I placed a special order with this Etsy shop, bought some paint and voila!  Post-kid-bedtime craftiness.  The people need some more details (they look a little creepy without eyes, don’t you think?) and I’ve yet to begin the sheep and donkey, but otherwise I’m pretty pleased with how they’re turning out.

On to the group portrait of actual humans:

Last week I declared that this week I’d have my Christmas photo reveal, but I think I made a liar out of myself.  For one, I want to try a few more photos where the kids aren’t so squinty. They really do have beautiful eyes. Added to that, Kevin and I are now locked in the Great Christmas Card Debate of 2015 where he thinks parents should also be in the Christmas photo, and while I generally agree, I mostly think I ruin photos by being in them these days.  Much to my children’s delight, we will most likely have a Thanksgiving photo shoot up at my parents’ house.

Now, for the news about December Theme Thursdays! I am super duper excited to announce that during December, we’ll be aligning our Theme Thursday prompts with the Holy Lens/Blessed is She daily Advent prompts.  Abbey @ Surviving Our Blessings writes the prompts, and as soon as she sends them to me, I’ll be sharing them with you!  Make sure you follow me via email, on Facebook, and on Instagram for the most up-to-date information.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving, all you photographers!
