    I need to start thinking about this! You look adorable in that plaid skirt! I love snow pictures. We only get a nice snowfall like that a couple times a year here, but I always try to get photos of the kids. I usually do a tripod pic of us all by the tree. I need to start thinking about outfits!

      Sounds like you have a few options already for your Christmas card photos. Sometimes I recycle a picture from the year before since we usually get the best snow in March.

      Thank you! The bows were an addition to our Christmas decorations last year and I think we’re going to be keeping them around for a long time

      Thank you! We don’t get much snow where we live for a white Christmas either, but we always vacation in Colorado in December so we can get some snow.
