Marie over at Emma Calls Me Mama is hosting a fun little gathering where we link up a post with some of the traditions we carry on each year during the holidays. I thought I'd dig back as far as my digital history allowed on my 'puter and pull up our yearly Christmas pictures.
Christmas 2000: My youngest wasn't even born yet.
Christmas 2001...one of my all-time favorite pictures of my gang at gramma's house.
Christmas 2002....picking out a tree...a yearly tradition.
Christmas 2003. This was our red year. (?)
Christmas 2004. Our last family picture before our oldest got married. Bittersweet.
Christmas 2005. First time picking a tree without oldest brother.
Christmas 2006. We welcomed Bogart the big black dog to our family.
Christmas 2007. Chanced to meet a family we knew while finding our tree, so they snapped a pic.
And last year's foray into the deep dark woods (local tree farm) without big brother OR big sister.
But here they are...with their beloveds at the extended family's Christmas get-together.
And my favorite pic from last year....my oldest plays guitar hero with my youngest.
Thanks for letting me share my family. Don't forget to visit Marie's for links to other bloggers sharing their holiday traditions.
