And the best present?

The cardboard box of course!

Some pictures of my nieces taken on Christmas Day. No surprise that the eldest loved the box! She put her pillow and a few blankets in the bottom and happily crawled in and out all day, head first and then being lifted up and pulled out by her feet!



My youngest niece (10 months old now)



And with her Mum



I've processed these in LR (and Silver Efex Pro) as I currently have a 30 day trial, which I think I'll continue.

Re: And the best present?

Lovely set of images Amanda

We received a "Hamper" yesterday and I exclaimed "ooh what a lovely sewing basket" ...
when we got home I realised the "sewing basket" contained fined red wines; champagne and a large bottle of Bacardi (last for Nick only ) ... as well as lots of sweet treats etc., ... so being excited by "packaging" is something I have not grown out of .. at 61 years young

Wishing you and your family a very Happy new Year

Re: And the best present?

It must have felt like a very heavy sewing basket! Don't you like Bacardi?

Hope you have a great New Year too.

Lovely candid captures of your nieces, Amanda ... and in number #1 she's clearly having lot's of fun!

And btw, what could Santa have brought her in a box that size ? ... by its shape, maybe a scooter?

Hi Mark,

It was an old fashioned hobby horse which did get a small amount of use, but not as much as the box!
