I don't know what year this one is, but Penelope is pretty small! If we had coordinated our sweaters, it might have been a good picture...hee hee. I love our wood pile behind us, it represents a LOT of work from my hard-working man.
I like the blue and white wintery feel to this one. I remember the hole in Penelope's jeans and how I hoped it would not be noticed by anyone but me.
This was the year we got Summer, and he was such a dream horse for his first Christmas card photo. He looked right at the camera, and wore his garland so proudly. We took this down at our lake, and it was sooooo cold out, but nice and sunny! This was our first family photo without Lex.
This was 2005.
I had trouble getting everyone home at the same time, so finally decided that for the first time ever, it would be just the girls. Of course they wanted the dogs too, so we put Moses in harness and hitched him to the sled. I bought Pluto a hat and scarf, but he would not wear the hat. LOL. Moses put up with the Santa hat with his usual sweet patience. This was 2006.
We took this down at the lake again, on another cold day. This time Michael was our photographer, and he even picked out our clothes! I love how it turned out. He was so funny, and (revealing a big secret here) he even picked and "planted" the red berries around us. This was 2007.
