Our Christmas Photos

After I began seeing friends posting on facebook about their Christmas cards being done, I realized that I had yet to even take our photos!! Normally, I have the photos done by October and ordered by early November (I think I have a pretty good excuse for being a bit behind this year). Thankfully our family photographer is easily reachable and I was able to book her on short notice to take them at Apple Hill today. **In case you're wondering...yes, we recreated THIS (above) pose for our xmas photo this year...hehe.**

Back in October when we were at the pumpkin patch, I began thinking about how I could include Cole in our Christmas photo this year. Obviously I can't hold him in the photo, but he's still our family member and I wanted to think of a creative way to honor him in a happy way. I thought about including one of the photos of Mr. Howard or I holding him on the card or even putting his footprints in the card. I settled on my favorite few ideas, but I wasn't sure how it would all come together.

Today we took the photos and I have to say that I came up with something I love. It's the perfect way to include him in our Christmas card this year in a way that is happy and loving. I can't wait for you all to see it! Thank you Katie Taylor Photography!!

**Several months ago, I was dreading taking these photos because I thought I was going to be fat and ugly (I seriously puffed up when I was pregnant with Connor in my last couple months). Now, what I would give to be fat and ugly and still PREGNANT. I have seriously learned my lesson.**
