Do you remember family Christmas pictures

Another Christmas memory I have is our annual Christmas portrait being taken. Most of you will remember getting dressed up and going to Olan Mills or dept store and waiting your turn to smile for the camera. The ride in the car bring told not to get dirty, don’t touch your sisters hair, just sit there for Gods sake. Was this torture worth the picture….back in the day I would say no. But now as I look back I have some really great memories.


I’m the one in the middle incase you were wondering.  To add family members was always interesting as well.  A brother in-law and a niece!

Or more recently….

Then there was this one I sent to my business clients…


of course putting some silly comment with it to make people laugh.

To me christmas is about finding the “SPIRIT” of giving.  Giving a smile, holding a door for someone, saying bless you when someone sneezes.  Sure it is nice to get gifts, but how much nicer is it to do something for someone else that isn’t expecting it.

There are so many more pictures I could share and embarrass my family but I’ll save that for another time.  I am just grateful for the memories.
This might be my card picture this year..

The possibilities are endless!
You can always check out my other kids blog if you would like. here is a taste of it…

Have a great Christmas! May you never run out of laughter, love, and words :0)
