At the top of my Wish List this year was a family photo. Something even more important since it's likely to be our last (for a while) to include Michael because he's planning to move 600 miles south in just a few months.
We took more than 400 photos with the usual 5% to 10% "keeper" rate. These were my favorite five. As always, click any of them to see a larger view.
Aunt Laura sent a package for Gwen and Maddy and they were pretty thrilled to see the wrapped present and didn't even insist on opening them. Just look at those beautiful faces! (above)
Here's a goofy fun casual family photo. Really, this best reflects our family because there's always some degree of goofy fun taking place!
Here's Michael and his girlfriend, Kelsey. She's a real sweetheart and they're such a cute couple!
