We spent the second part of our Christmas at Justin’s parents house. After unloading the car, Jacob was ready to open more gifts.
One thing that I love to capture in photography is creating some good bokeh (the intentional use of creating blur or haze in the background). You know those beautiful pictures you see where the round refection from the light, there is an art to it and it takes practice (and the right lens) to capture some good bokeh. One fantastic way to play around with bokeh is using the light from a Christmas tree.
Their tree was beautifully decorated and low to the ground so it made a great backdrop.
I just love that little reindeer butt!
Again daddy came to the rescue to put together the toys
Later, it was time for Jacob’s dinner. Justin’s parents found this great wooden highchair that we use when we go to their house.
When he finished dinner and was munching on a teething cookie, I couldn’t resist getting my camera and capturing Jacob in the highchair with the Christmas tree in the background. The bokeh was just perfect.
With a full tummy, Jacob went back to opening gifts. Papa J and Nonnie got him this great Nativity scene.
We had a great Christmas and enjoyed all our time with family. When we got home, we had a couple days to get settled back into our routine and we celebrated New Years Eve with some neighbors. Then we were in full planning mode for Jacob’s birthday party, those pictures are coming up next.
