Photo Traditions and Merry Christmas!

Do you have any specific holiday photos that you take every year? I always take a photo of my girls holding Christmas tree ornaments up to their ears like earrings. It started quite by accident one year while we were decorating the tree, and it was so cute that I made sure that we repeated that photo every year. Now we can't decorate the tree with out our annual earring photo. What about you?

I also try to always take a photo of the kids in front of the tree before opening gifts on Christmas morning. Last year it wasn't too successful though (see previous post) and I'm hopeful that this year I will get my photos. Hopeful, but I'm willing to take whatever I can get, LOL. My little Rachel is quite demanding, and I have a feeling we will have a few tears throughout Christmas morning. Why? Because we do not do a 'free for all' type of gift opening. We open them slowly, taking turns so we can see what the other person is getting too. I fear this will be just too much for my 2-year old, lol. Oh well, it will make for a fun page!

And here are my most recent pages:

Fall Walk: credits here.
Heart Sing: credits here.
Christmas Spirit: credits here.
BRRR: credits here.
Christmas Cheer: credits here.
the Nativity Story: credits here.

In case you are wondering what's up with the nontraditional page shapes... I have noticed lots of paper scrappers scrapping 6x12 layouts. I thought this was a great idea so that I can print some pages at Costco without wasting space :) It's kind of fun to do something different as well.

I also want to wish each of you a happy and safe holiday! Merry Christmas!

I'll see you in about 2 weeks, have a fun winter vacation!

Wonderful LO's - love your bauble earing tradition. I haven't had any particular photos in the past - just the usual type, but I have a new camera this year, and am taking photos of everything and anything.

Love the 6 x 12 LO's too - but we don't have Costco here.

Merry Christmas to you and yours from Northern Ireland.
