Between living abroad (us in Japan, Camille in Guatemala), and among different states (us California and Jennifer in Arizona), we have not been all together with every single family member present since the beginning of 2013. You may recall our So Cal meetup a few months ago, but Melanie wasn't there because of her soccer team obligations. Anyway! This Christmas called for pictures.
I had to plan it all--find a photog, location, etc., since we were in my hood and that was a pain, but it worked out! This little spot with this gorgeous cyprus tree is just a 5 minute walk from the cottage.
My mom's parents joined us for Christmas, so they jumped in a few pictures, and I'm so glad we have these pictures with them in them, because let's be honest, they are getting pretty old. My grandma is turning 90 in just a few weeks. So who knows when this situation will happen again.
The parents. I love these wonderful people so much.this if you haven't seen it you should)
The clan! Poor J. Never thought I'd see the day when he didn't pose for a picture :(
my post from the last time we did pictures. We've added three new people! But no new spouses. Get on that, little sisters ;)
