"It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...

... everywhere you go." It's Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas by Perry Como

Does anyone else love Polaroids? I know they are terrible quality and really inferior to digital in every way but somehow...there's something incredibly charming about just a junky polaroid picture!

One of my favorite memories from childhood was when I was about four and we got to go see Santa, I think it was at Dillards in Santa Fe, and they took a polaroid of my sister and me and it was the very first time I'd ever seen one. I watched it magically develop before my very eyes, and in that moment polaroids were forever connected to the magic of Christmas.

Fast forward to now--and there is a delightful (free!) download that you can get called Poladroid. It's a fun little "virtual" polaroid camera!

So here's our fun family moments from this year in faux polaroids!
