Photos From Christmas Past

I've been wanting to do this ALL month and I figured I better take care of it BEFORE Christmas. Every year, since we had Lily, we take an annual family photo to include in our Christmas cards. Please enjoy the Good, the Bad and the Ugly from our last 10 Christmases!

2000

This was "pre-digital camera" and had to be scanned!

2001

This one did not scan well!

2002

Not long after this photo was taken, I found out I was pregnant with twins!

2003

This photo contains the evidence that the boys stockings WERE complete for their first Christmas!

2004

Our first Christmas in AZ.

2005

Don't ask about the overalls! Seriously!!

2006

Bare feet and green grass in December!

2007

Just days after this photo was taken, I found out I was pregnant with baby #4...aka Miss Daisy...aka the Trouble Maker!

2008

Decorations at the local shopping center are very useful!

2009

We parked the car in the middle of the street and hopped out to quickly get this shot.

Happy Christmas Eve Everybody! Stay Safe AND Warm!

It's so funny to look back at old pics. They're great, though (♥ the overalls)! The whole time, I kept thinking wow you had bangs for a really long time! ;) I noticed the stalkings right away too! You have a beautiful family! :)

Merry Christmas!

Those are all so cute. The one from this year was just a quick shot? Your family is soooooo cooperative. Everyone looks great. Cute pictures.
Merry Christmas Eve to you all too!

Wow- how neat to see how the kids and your family are growing every year. The difference from 2002-2003 in your daughter is a huge change. And then again from 04-05 in all the kids. I think my favorite ones are when a new baby is added to the picture.

Those are great pictures. How nice to have a family shot every year. I did, however, laugh at the overalls. ;-)

Merry Christmas!

I enjoyed seeing your photos. It's fun to see the way your family changed over the years. I like the 2004 First Christmas in Arizona one best. I love overalls. Used to have a pair of brown corduroy ones.

How fun looking at those girl! Love the barefoot one and how your hair kept getting longer and longer. Mine was opposite - it got shorter and shorter :o)

All those cute kiddos!
