Christmas 2014 Photo Challenge :: Day 10-16

Can you believe Christmas Eve is exactly one week away? Hope ya'll are ready for Jolly Saint Nick to come visit. We have some wrapping to do but overall, Christmas can come any day now. This Momma has it covered!

In preparation of Christmas Day, we've been having a blast snapping photos for our #2014ChristmasPhoto Challenge on Instagram. Last week I shared days 1-9 with you. Today, we have a pretty festive college for days 10-16. 



Day 10 || STOCKINGS - They've been hung, now they just need filled!

Day 11 ||  GREETINGS - CJ Frankenstein loves getting snail mail... especially when we get to hang it up on the door like this.

Day 12 || DOZEN - We enjoyed a fun morning decorating a dozen cookies with friends.

Day 13 || PAJAMAS - Warm and cozy in our pajamas while reading a bedtime story. 

Day 14 || CELEBRATE - Presents have been bought, ornaments have been made so now it's time to wrap wrap wrap!

Day 15 || GREEN - Connor wore a festive green tee this week. It says Daddy's on the Nice List but we all know that's a lie. 

Day 16 || COOKIES - While some enjoy the made from scratch baking style, this Momma knows when to stick with the dough boy for easy (tasty) results. 

If you aren't familiar with the challenge, each day you are given a prompt to photograph and then upload it to Instagram. If you haven't joined us yet, don't worry! Join today - the prompt is TREE - and use the hashtag #2014ChristmsPhoto. I'll be on the lookout for your photos! Then on December 24th you post a collection of the photos you've taken so far on your blog or Facebook.


As of this morning, we have had 259 photos submitted to the challenge. I never imagined so many folks would jump on board but you know? I think it has a lot to do with the Christmas spirit; it just makes you want to document a holiday well celebrated. 

Happy Hump Day, friends!

  1. I love this challenge. I've yet to join because my life is crazy busy and sadly I don't have decorations or anything up. :( It's a sad day when this girl who loves christmas doesn't have any decorations up.

    1. I think I'm going to make it an annual thing so you can play along next year. Because as we know, Christmas 2015 will be here quicker than quick.

    1. If I didn't have these prompts, I would seriously have days where I didn't take a single picture and I want nothing more than to have well documented holidays for Connor.

  5. I completely agree with Courtney. This challenge should definitely become an annual event.

  7. This has easily been one of my favorite "challenges". Finding different/creative ways to document each prompt has been so fun. It's one of the first things I try to check of my "to do list" each morning. I'll be posting this past week's recap on Friday.

    1. it makes you think doesn't it? I like being able to go to bed at night knowing I've documented at least one part of our Christmas each and every day.

  11. I think I missed some of your photos somehow but I love them all! I've been horrible and missed a couple prompts but have been having so much fun coming up with a fun, festive way to document the season through the challenge!

    1. I think if you follow too many people on IG, you can easily mess photos. I know that's the case for me.
