Christmas morning family photo

Our 2015 traditional Christmas morning family photo

At school recently Karla's class was asked what Christmas traditions their families had.  Karla didn't didn't hesitate to nominate our family photo in front of the Christmas tree.  We've been doing these family photos for several years now, since I've really gotten into photography, so Karla hasn't known a Christmas morning without the family photo!  It's also a good way to get the kids dressed before they're allowed to open any presents!

This year we had a couple of guests staying with us, Lee and Steve from Scotland, so we had a second group photo with all of us (this time we closed the blind so it wasn't so bright in the window behind us).

Our visitors from Scotland, Lee and Steve, joined us for a second family photo this Christmas

Red Black Bash

Last Friday the family went to Essendon Football Club's new head quarters at Melbourne Airport to watch the fun cricket match between Essendon and the Melbourne Renegades cricket team.

It was a nice day with photo and autograph opportunities before and after the match.

Christmas, done and dusted!

When I posted our family photo with Santa last week, I mentioned that I hadn't realised that this site hadn't been updated for almost 12 months.  So today I've gone through the various Blogger options and given this - our family web page - a bit of a spruce up and new look.

To top it off, below is our annual family photo in front of the tree on Christmas morning.
Hopefully it wont be another 12 months before I post another update SMJBK update!
