Last year was Autumn’s first Christmas. But at three months, I think the sights, sounds and smells of the season come off more like a heavy acid trip than a time of joy and celebration. This year she was aware of the celebration, and it was so much fun to include her in the ritual of the season. Also, we simply know her much better than we did a year ago. We decided to try something different to record the celebration: a time-lapse video of Christmas morning and some preparations from the night before. It allowed us to enjoy each other without being stuck behind a camera. This might become a tradition.
May not be 100% appropriate for Santa’s faithful.

Grandpa Salsig says
This absolutely needs to become a family tradition — No question about it !! !! Awesome photography staring my three all time favorite actors. I remember well the Christmas times with Jody and Brian when I didn’t get to bed until the wee hours of the morning — assembling the toys with the instructions “some assembly required”.
Love ya, DAD and Grandpa
Grandma Eileen says
Wonderful! Do it again next year and the year after and after. It made my heart sing.
Krista and Eric says
So cute and agreed…so Pritchard! Eric and I just watched and both agreed how cool it would be to do that each year…the kids would love to look back on it. Start the tradition, great job!

Neil Weiss says
this is sensational – well done Pritchards
I especially like the 7 or 8 times Matt stops to read a magazine or take a nap
That was the coolest thing I have EVER seen! All the better since I know (most of) the cast of characters.
Oh Jody, This made me so happy to watch! What a wonderful idea.
