I think the photos speaks for itself!

Peppermint Wonderland - Oklahoma Children's Photographer

A couple weeks ago I did little MM's annual Christmas portraits. Being that we are on a strict budget this year, I couldn't get the set I wanted, so I had to be creative. A few pieces of white posterboard, a roll of red velvet ribbon, a couple of vintage bows bought from a booth at a local boutique/antique store with proceeds from sales in that booth benefitting the local pet shelter, and a bag of snow from the $store and we were all set. A few of these are edited, but most are just fast fixes to put up on the blog for relatives to see who live away from here.

And of course, after uploading I can see some are off wb. Oh well. Lots more to come in a slideshow. She had two dresses.

Marshmallow Pops become Marshmallow Christmas Cupcakes guarded by the solider at the Wish Tree

What's easier and better than making sugar cookies with your 3 year old granddaughter at Christmas? Marshmallow Pops, or in this case, Marshmallow cupcakes!

There were no lollipop sticks to be found so instead we used mini cupcake papers found in the Christmas aisle and actually it was more fun probably and instead of spending extra money on the things that go with all that, we just bought more sprinkles!

And of course she's ever the photographer's assistant because she refused to eat any of them until "AFTER" the photo shoot. That was her remark, no prompting from me. Go figure. Gotta love moments like that. And now the Nutcracker soldier guards the treats next to the Wish Tree in our kitchen. He even got his own Christmas Marshmallow treat top because he does such a good job guarding the Christmas wishes until Santa collects them.
