So, Christmas cards! I have to confess...even though I love touching base with the family and friends we dearly miss, Christmas cards totally stress me out. The season is already so busy that each year I try to justify sending out cards for something like Pi Day instead. The tradition is so ingrained that it will probably never happen, but I can keep dreaming. In the meantime, this year we tried to make things a bit easier by starting early and taking pictures over Halloween. Many thanks to Charles and Susie for being our photographers (and letting us into the Logan Temple grounds.)
Here are some fun shots that didn't make it onto the card. Jason, are you leaning?
When did my littles grow so big?
Talia has a question.
And some bloopers. Keeping Annika in the frame was definitely a challenge. Here she is launching into a sommersault.
Check out the far left of this picture for evidence of her antics.
Annika's got hops.
And our keeper, slightly blurry faces and all.
Let's not forget our annual Christmas cartoon/letter. You've outdone yourself in every wonderful way, Peanut Butter.
There's always a bit of friendly tension between my desire to keep things simple and Jason's desire for artistic expression. As you can see, he won the battle...this year. :) Don't we all wish we had such talent?
In the spirit of Dicken's Christmas Carol, we almost sent out a triptych instead with photos of Christmas homes past, present, and future.
Here's to a 2017 that involves far less moving!
