Christmas 2017

Every year on this family blog, we post our Christmas Morning Family Photo.  2017 is the last year before our oldest, Josh, turns 18 and officially becomes an adult.

We've agreed that when Josh is an adult, his appearance in the family photo as one of the kids will be optional, but hopefully he sticks around!

Karla's Gymnastics

Last year Karla started doing gymnastics.  She has progressed really well and has this year done a few competitions.

This year Karla (aged 8) has also developed an interest in making videos for YouTube (with Dad's help of course), so we've combined the two.  Check out these couple of videos we made at two of her competitions. 

Needless to say, Mum and Dad are very proud.

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
