Christmas Morning 2019

2019 has been a huge year for our family, as I have fought (and hopefully beaten) pancreatic cancer.  With all of that behind us, before you know it, Christmas morning is upon us. 

Since 2010, we've had a tradition of taking a family photo in-front of the tree on Christmas morning, before any presents are opened.  With our eldest son, Josh, almost 20 years old, I'm not sure how many more Christmas mornings the five of us will be all together for a family portrait.  After such a stressful year, I'm so glad we were all at home this Christmas to continue our family tradition.

Embarrassing the kids

We recently spent some time going through some old home movie footage of the kids as they were growing up, and put it together for a video on YouTube titled "Embarrassing my Kids".  The title probably gives you an idea of what to expect, but thankfully the kids are good sports and had a good laugh at themselves when showed the finished product.

It's not a short video, but take a look, I think you'll get a laugh out of it as well.

Christmas Morning Family Photo

It's become a family tradition to get dressed and pose for our family photo on Christmas morning before any gifts are opened.  Even though Josh is officially an adult now, he's still one of the kids who enjoys opening presents Christmas morning, so it was good that we were all still together and able to continue our tradition.

This year I've also made a "Behind The Scenes" video of us getting this family photo done, check it out on YouTube...

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.
