It is so hard to slow down sometimes when there is still so much to do, but it is so important. I must remember this as much as anybody. It is Jesus who is the reason for the season. Not me, not what others think of me, and not even my children. Christ's coming to save the world is that real reason for the season.
I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas. Below I have some photos I took for our Christmas cards. I found some of the pose ideas on Pinterest which you can find here. I hope you enjoy them. I sure enjoyed taking them. I will warn you though, there are a lot of pictures. I love to take them. The first ones are from my older girls dance recital.

|Getting ready for the photos. I love this sweet little hat I purchased from BabyGap.|
|I love these shots, but I was a little nervous with the lights. I watched her VERY carefully.|
|This is probably one of my favorite shots of the day.|
|Getting sleepy from all the picture taking.|
