Every year since having Graham, we make an effort to take a family photo so that we can send it to family and friends and have an annual record that I am, indeed, part of this family. I love going back and watching our family grow.

2003

2004

2005

2006

2007

2008

2009

Last year we also included a photo I had taken of all three kids, as we thought it kind of captured their personalities perfectly. It’s framed and on our fireplace mantle as well.

2010

Last weekend, I took one of the three of them as I was setting up my tripod for our annual shoot.

It, too, captures their personalities but I’m not sure if that one will go on the mantle.

I managed to grab a photo of the five of us that we all liked with less than ten tries.

(We tried to get a photo with the dog included in it but he kept facing the wrong way.)

We sure have come a long way. Happy holidays, folks.

    I absolutely love looking at your family pics.

    we got our first family picture EVER this summer. I am so angry that we’ve never taken them! They are such a treasure.

    In the 2004 photo, Graham TOTALLY looks like Daniel! Also, you look like you haven’t aged a day since 2003. I love this year’s photo and I love that you posted all the years, so awesome to see the changes in the number of kids and in the kids themselves.

    I got all excited just now, remembering I took 2009′s family photo!

    Also, I have that picture of your kiddos framed and on my mantle, too. Though I suppose it’s less “mantle” and more “console table.”

    Also, you are beautiful, A.

    That’s a beautiful photo! Wow, have those guys grown :)

    Also, I’d totally have inlcuded the one with the dog butt – somehow it seems appropriate for the species.

    CUTE!

    Also, the fact that all your kids have blond hair gives me hopes that when Vahid and I have a kid (ya know a LONG time from now) that maybe they will have blue eyes. (His mom has them so they run in his family and I obviously have them. One can hope right?)
