Our Christmas Tree is decorated and beautiful. Each and every ornament. We have a tradition of buying the girls ornaments each year. Something just for them. Fitting and personal. Some day they will remove them from my tree for their very own.
After we decorate the tree, we always try to capture a family photo (or two or three). It’s fun to look at the outtakes and see what was captured in time. Always a reminder of these days when our girls were young. Sometimes, we manage to get some pretty priceless photos.
Of each and every one of the four people who have captured my heart completely. My gosh, how I love their silliness and their giggles and their smiles. Those big beautiful smiles.
And… somewhere in the bunch of digital memories, I find one where we are all looking at the camera. At the same time. With gorgeous smiles on our face. My family.
