Happy Holidays!

Hi!  I can't believe it is already the second week of Advent.  The season is flying by.  Last week, we celebrated the first week of Advent with cookies, chocolate milk, watching a video animation on the Saviors birth, and reading a few books.  On Tuesday, while the children were at school I decorated the house and realized I didn't have a stocking for Ivy, so with a click of a few buttons that was taken of and it should be here any day.  I am also grateful that I was able to get out Christmas cards out before the children started dropping like flies with various illnesses. Tis the season, but man I wish we could have at least gotten though Christmas before everyone started getting sick. On Monday, Avery stayed home with a cold and fever as did Addy. Tuesday Avery stayed home as she still had a fever, Wednesday everyone went to school, but then Thursday Roman threw up, and Friday Ivy came down with a cold.  I also had the stomach bug but thankfully feel better now though I could use a few more hours of sleep as Ivy was coughing all night long.  Today we are just taking it easy around the house.  Anyway, for months I have been showing you photo shoots that I have taken of other families,but today you get to see the highlights from our family shoot.  The photos were take by Blue Lily Photography.  This is actually our first family shoot since the boys were little!  Happy Holidays! Hope you are enjoying the season!  Do you have any fun activities plan?


Beautiful family Kelly! The boys are all going to be taller than dad and mom! Pretty quickly now in some cases.

Your photos are so much fun -my favorites are the one of all of your sitting in the grass, and the last one:)
This year the "plans" come to us, - our son is coming for a Christmas week from Holland, so it depends on him what we'll do.
Just to give you heads up for all SEASONS -the week before the 25th, for sure I'll leave the link list open all week, don't know yet about after the 25th, maybe the same, or one week off. But I'll announce it in my post.
Hope all the colds and sniffels will die down fast, and everyone will feel better by Christmas! Have a happy December week!

You have a beautiful family, Kelleyn! And isn't it lovely that family photos have come a long way since the stiff studio days of the past. :)
Have a wonderful week!

Lovely and warm photos,K. I'm afraid I don't have your Christmas spirit but I'm trying to toughen up for the cold which has finally arrived. Hopefully, I'll get out of the car to take some pics but, brrrr. I love the one of the two girls running toward the pond, precious.

Lovely family...and backdrop!
Thanks for visiting me so I could come and visit. Yes, cannot believe we are already in 2nd week of Advent let alone that it is even December already. Love the photos that you share. So colorful with the autumn hues. The one of the kids on the path is precious. Have great week ahead. :)

Wonderful family pictures. How did you get them all to smile at the same time and not pull funny faces?
