In honor of Christmas landing on a Sunday this year, I thought I’d post
our family Christmas picture from 2005, the last time Christmas was
Isn’t that hilarious?
This is one of our FAVORITE Christmas pictures of all time.
Buttercup was 13….
Need I say more?
You don’t need Captain Obvious to point out how excited she was to take a family picture that morning.
We went to church (we had the 1:00 time slot I believe)
and afterward we came home and got this shot.
Sure, it’s a prettier picture
but Buttercup and I love the first picture more
and we laugh about it every time we think about it or look at it.
We laugh at how silly it is.
How such a simple thing like taking a family picture can blow up into something huge.
And how we still loved each other even though we were mad and frustrated.
It’s a reminder of family bonds.
Of remembering that families are forever, even though they’re not always perfect.
(I’ve never met a perfect family, have you?)
And most importantly,
It’s a reminder that we love each other.
