What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and the work flow. ~ Martin Luther

Christmas Eve 2009

Christmas Eve is always spent with my side of the family in their home.

It's always a mighty full house and the children outnumber the adults.

Here are a *very* few shots from there. I get frustrated with low-light situations and would rather not take any photos at all then to waste time taking bad shots. Call me lazy. Call me dumb for not knowing how to clear the flash hurdle. Call me whatever.

But it would be a SIN to not take a picture of this funny moment:

Those headbands from way back when were worn in a different way than I had anticipated. Much more stylishly I might add!


Mom really wanted a family picture this year. This is my brother Benjamin's first year back home in many a year, so it was extra special to have him for Christmas.

Can I remind you how much I HATE taking indoor shots when the sun goes down at, oh, 2 o'clock?? H.A.T.E. it. They are always ALWAYS grainy.

But here they are Mom, full of grain and all. Hope you like!

I couldn't decide which I liked better, so I made a black and white version too.

And because we are who we are, a silly version was absolutely necessary.
