I'm a terrible photographer, but I have great looking kids. The two kind of cancel each other out and I always end up with a few pictures that are decent. I won't tell you which ones I decided on for our Christmas cards. Yes, that's right, I already ordered our Christmas cards- a new record for me. My incentive to get it done early this year was Shutterfly's 30% off sale plus free shipping that ended yesterday.
Normally I spend an insane amount of money on formal holiday wear for the kids. Not this year! They usually only wear their Christmas dresses and sweaters 3 or 4 times, so I decided we'd do something different this year. I love these shirts that tell the kids' ages! I've been collecting them for a couple of years now so each year I only have to add one or two t-shirts. And in keeping with our casual theme we decided to try for a good picture in our own backyard.
Cute kids, huh?
- I'm an on-the-run mom to 6 kids who studied and taught exercise science in a previous life. I love all things running, nutrition, and health-related. I usually run at zero dark thirty in the morning and am often quite hungry before, during, and after my run, but I live a rich, full, blessed life with my children, family, and friends. My faith in God is my anchor, and looking to Him and His promises allows me to live fully even when life circumstances are difficult. While running gives me an appetite, my desire is to hunger and thirst for righteousness more than for physical food.
