#2016ChristmasMoments Days 1-15

Every year Santa Stephanie hosts a Christmas themed photo challenge and every year I do my best to play along. As much as I love the idea of a photo challenge, I always struggle with the execution. December of 2014 was the very first challenge I ever completed. However, last year I didn’t do as well when I bombed on the very last day. Whoops!

So far 2016 is on track. I have been sharing my photos daily on Instagram all month-long. Since seeing anything on Instagram has become challenging lately, I thought I would share them on the blog too.

Day 1 | Selfie

Day 2 | Red

Cranberry & Jalapeno Crackers recipe. The perfect combo of spicy and sweet for the holidays #ad #HolidayPartyPlanning AND #CBias #UncommonlyGood

Day 3 | Lights

Day 4 | Sweets

Day 5 | Santa

Day 6 | Tradition

Day 7 | Gift

Day 8 | Music

Day 9 | Family

Day 10 | Tree

Day 11 | Secret

Day 12 | Elf

Day 13 | Green

Day 14 | Sparkle

Day 15 | Messes

If you haven’t been playing along it’s never too late to join the fun.
Do you have a good track record for completing photo challenges?

    I have loved your photos! I was doing so well but skipped a few days :(.

    • How far behind are you? Could you do two a day and catch up quickly?

  • ugh, I fell off the photowagon, mostly because my phone camera doesn’t work. I need to start taking pictures with my big camera instead. I love your photos.

    • Oh man, that stinks so bad. I take 90% of my IG feed with my DSLR.

  • I absolutely love your Christmas moments! Instagram is such a pain these days. I end up missing so many pictures from my favorite bloggers, even though I have notifications turned on!

    • I know! Its SO frustrating, right?! Thank you so much.

  • I live every single one, knocking it out if the park!!!

  • I have been loving following along with your Christmas moments on Instagram! You take some gorgeous photos!

    • Well Ive bombed on prett much every other one I’ve tried… so…

  • I am loving participating in this challenge too – your pictures are so beautiful! It’s such a fun way to capture moments that you might not normally photograph!

    Your photos are just better & better! I’m going to pick top 3: gift, tree & messes. But all of them are so, so good!

    • Thanks Amy! Those are some of my favorites too.

    I forgot about the IG challenge after day 3. #fail. I always tell myself I’ll finish one and then something happens, I totally forget and don’t remember until it’s almost over!

    • Lol! This is so me with EVERY other photo challenge!

  • I am terrible at photo challenges. Terrible. You are doing great! Keep rocking it!

    • Its the best challenge ever. I kind of want to try one in January to keep the ball going, but im 99% sure Id fail.

  • Whitney Jordan

    I enjoy participating in photo challenges, but have never completed one. Maybe that’ll be a goal of mine in the new year. Loved seeing your sweet Christmas pics ๐Ÿ™‚

    • This is the only one that I have ever completed successfully (2014) Last year I bombed on the last day. If I can pull this one off I’d like to find another for January!

  • Desiree @ Macke Monologues

    I fully dropped the ball on this year’s challenge. But, it’s been so much fun seeing everyone’s photos on the gram!
