This year we rented a car from Avis and went to a Tree Farm in Connecticut to get our Christmas tree!!! I have always wanted to do this and something about cutting a tree down seemed so magical and it was just as amazing as I thought it would be! It was SUCH a fun day and I hope we can have this be a new tradition of ours. While we were out there we teamed up with our friend, Slade, who is an amazing commercial director to make a little Christmas card video and it is something I will cherish forever! He came to us with a really cool idea he had where we make a polished video and then have it cut to the behind the scenes with film from in between shots and show kind of what it took to make the video! When David and I watched the finished product for the first time we both totally teared up. It definitely reminded us how blessed we are to have this family of ours.. family really is everything.

I hope you guys like the video and make sure you subscribe to Slade’s channel! He is going to be doing lots of videos similar to this – he is amazingly talented and his videos are so fun to watch. David and I love meeting creative people who are go getters and come up with new ideas like Slade and his wife do.. all of our friends we have made in New York are nothing short of that.

Tomorrow is Christmas Eve and we have so many fun things planned! Cookie decorating, a holiday puppet show, santa (going to try again just for fun), a sleepover by the tree, caroling at Washington Square Park, and more. I am so excited! Especially to see the kiddos in their pj’s we got for them in Norway when I was pregnant! Also, Atticus flipppps out any time he sees a teddy bear in a store, especially the big ones. For his gift this year we got him one of those big 6 ft teddy bears and he is going to have a heart attack when he sees it, its going to be so great! And I am also proud of myself for finally doing a Christmas card.. Haha I have always wanted to but I am not one to send cards usually.. I don’t appreciate sending mail as much as I should and have been trying to be better at sending thank you cards instead of texts and doing announcement cards, etc. So I finally made one on Minted this year and was surprised how easy it is (who knew you just upload an excel doc and THEY address them?! GAME CHANGER) and now I am wondering why it took me so long to do this!

Wishing you all a Merry Christmas/Happy Holidays!!! Thank you for following along! Xo

  1. WOW…that video documetary made me tear up! That will be such a treasure in all the years to come!

  2. I love your Christmas card!! Question.. Where did you get you beanie?? I’ve been looking for a slouchy Pom Pom one..

      1. I also love that beanie so much! I didn’t see it on online at ZARA though! Is it gone? Super cute and I hope you have an amazing 2016!

  3. Aw you guys are the sweetest! I really like your outfits in this one. Also, I haven’t left a comment for a while (still diligently reading though), so here it is 🙂 We never cut a tree ourselves but after reading this I really think we should 🙂 I hope you had the best holidays and have a blast when celebrating the new year!
    All the best from Germany,

    1. You are too nice!! Thanks so much Kate!! I love reading comments so I appreciate it 🙂 Happy New Year!! xoxo

  4. Ok so we’re moving to NYC in May, and I’m just DYING in the mean time haha. Your videos with all your cute New York adventures give me life!! Keep them com ing!

    1. How exciting!!! You will love it 🙂 Thanks for following along and for the sweet comment!! xo

  5. I’m obsessed with everything about this post. Definitely want to make a tradition of getting our tree from a tree farm now! You guys a beautiful. Happy Holidays 🙂

  6. Amber You HAVE to buy Velour organic fitted crib sheets from amazon for your babies. (I would invest in Velour sheets for your bed as well, I got mine at bed bath beyond) They are AMAZING since I switched to velour the other night I was able to sleep threw the whole night first time in a long time. But for the babies its perfect so soft and the sheets are warm when you go to put them to bed. Perfect for cold NYC nights. Seriously buy them you wont regret it! I cant imagine sleeping with out them there that comfortable. If you or your babies love your sleep as much as me then velour sheets are for you!

    1. Thanks so much for suggestion Misty!! I will definitely look into them 🙂 xoxo

    1. Thanks Kelly!! We had a great Christmas!! Happy holidays to you and thanks for following along!! xo

  7. What a beautiful and stylish family! Hope you had a great holiday and a happy new year!

    XO, Jessi

  8. Absolutely LOVE the video! I am looking into creating a blog of my own and had a few questions for you. What website did you use to start your blog, and what type of camera/editing software do you use?

  9. Absolutely LOVED the video! Would you mind doing a post on the camera you vlog with and what editing software you use for both photos and videos? It would be much appreciated!

    1. Thank you so much!! And actually we had someone else film it (Slade Combs 🙂 He did an amazing job!! But when we make our videos we use Final Cut Pro to edit them!! For pictures I use a program called Lightroom. xo

  10. Oh my gosh, so sweet! As a photographer, I love photos, of course… but there’s something particularly moving about video <3 Definitely on my list to learn.. and Slade captured your family so perfectly! Hope you had an amazing Christmas!

  11. Amber I totally teared up too! That video was adorable, I love when David is bringing the tree after it’s cut and Atticus is skipping along next to him!!! You look so happy and I am SO happy for you guys, welcome to the beautifully chaotic world of two little ones 🙂 xo
    PS looking forward to watching more of your work with Slade!

  12. Amazing job done by Slate! So lovely to watch the video of your family! Definitely a great tradition to cut your own christmas tree. Merry Christmas Amber and your beautiful family!

  13. Love the video! I turned away after the polished part ended, but ran back to my computer when I heard there was more haha! So much fun. I just love the BTS part at the end.

  18. Oh my ! What a happy beautiful video! These pics are pretty too. I love the fact that you came back as stylish as you are right after Rosie got a few weeks old. Now you can travel around with her. My friend just gave birth to her child and she always stays at home. She claims that the milk comes evevry one or two hours and its inconvinient to go out. How do you deal with that type of problem? Wish you and your family a Merry Chrismast xo

  25. Merry Christmas to the Clark family! ! ???? Especially Rosie for it’s her first????


  26. I don’t have word… So incredibly beautiful… Atticus and Rosie are just perfect, and you guys too (and Chauncey too, of course!). The pictures are amazing, the card is natural and beautiful, the christmas video card just beyond words, (i had tears from the first seconds, it’s crazy!) and the BTS is so nice and funny (When i saw the first video I was wondering how did Slade did the aerial view, and then I had the answer in the bts -glad it didn’t broke!). I liked it very much when you talked about your first christmas together and that you didn’t have money, I found it very moving. You can be proud of your achievements. The blog and youtube channel are a complete success (well deserved) and you did manage to build a wonderful family at the same time, it’s pretty awesome.
    Did I first said i didn’t have words? LOL obsviously I was wrong !
    Anyway, wish you all a merry christmas and all the best for 2016 ! Sorry for my english, again… and lots of love from France !!!

  50. What a sweet video and Christmas cards! That video seriously made me tear up. What a precious thing to have forever to remember your first holiday as a family of 4! Your friend Slade is a VERY talented videographer.

    David- don’t hate on the Barq’s! Don’t let him make you feel badly, Amber, I get root beer EVERY time I am at 5 Guys – especially since it is a fountain soda. Nothing is better than fountain root beer. Seriously.

    I hope you 4 have a wonderful holiday spending time with family and celebrating the season! Let’s hope snow follows soon, though, because here in Chicago it sure doesn’t feel like the Christmas season with this 60 degree day and thunderstorms… Merry Christmas!!

  51. OMG Amber what a beautiful video!!! I was tearing up too watching it! And then laughing at the end with your behind the scenes clips lol. Merry Christmas to you and your family!
