Shortly after we moved in, one of Woody's colleagues donated us a basketball hoop.
She and her husband had just bought a new house and had no need for the hoop so we were the lucky ones to receive it (those babies are pricey!)
My sweet husband spent a weekend becoming an expert cement mixer, hole digger and leveler to get that monstrous hoop perfectly into the ground.
So, I knew I wanted it to be part of our Christmas photo.
At first we were going to do a staged action photo like this:

We ended up with this one:
Here's what else we did:
Maya's never been a big basketball fan but they've started playing it more in P.E.
She came home the other day and told me she had "drained" all her shots.
Sweet girl. :)
