My mom always took a picture of each of us in front of the Christmas tree the Sunday before Christmas. I can’t not do this!

Darryl and me! Its our 10th Christmas in love!


Kathryn – she wore this dress that was once mine. She even let me braid her hair so she looks even more like mini me!


Amelia – wearing her favorite color!


Daniel – looking so handsome and really growing up!


Michael – such a character! We had to do several takes and I couldn’t resist posting a few. Someone should have gotten a bigger shirt and vest for Christmas!





And Nathaniel – loves grabbing onto his foot!


Not in front of the Christmas tree, but I had to mention that Darryl cooked a duck for Christmas dinner (we also had ham). I have come to realize that I love duck! I think it started when I was in China in 2002. So when Darryl came home from the store with a duck I was excited. Darryl did an excellent job and it tasted delicious. I think a new tradition is born…

I love these pictures of your family! They are all adorable, especially the one of you and Darryl! I like duck too, but I just can’t get myself to cook one that looks like a duck. I don’t know why; it doesn’t bother me to cook a turkey! But if Darryl will cook it, and not show it to me, I will enjoy eating it!

What a fun tradition, I love seeing these pictures. Especially the ones of Michael – so cute! I’ve never had duck ‘meat’ – but when I was on my mission in France I ate a lot of Pâté de Canard (duck liver) on baguettes. Must admit, of all the Pâté I tried, duck was my favorite so I imagine the meat tastes even better!

These are fabulous photos–real treasures! What a great tradition!
