Me and Mine…A Family Project December 2016

Me and Mine…A Family Project December 2016

I had plans for our December family photos of the four of us by the tree on Christmas Day in our new home. But of course plans go out the window when you have a young family.

With moving house a few weeks before Christmas life was very busy. We had lots of festive things planned in the lead up to Christmas, plus we had a house full of boxes that needed unpacking. It was all a bit crazy.

But, somehow we managed it. The boxes were unpacked, the Christmas tree was put up and the house slowly came together. We had two weeks with no internet which was particularly stressful, but we got through it. Our house became a home.

We had our families coming over to our house on Christmas Day and I was hoping to get the photos before everyone arrived, but I didn’t manage it. But I really wanted the photos of us for December to be in our new home, so before we took the tree down I quickly got these photos of us.

They are not the perfect photos I had imagined in my head, but when you have a crazy two year old that was never going to happen. The light was terrible, but this is us in our new home and we couldn’t be happier…

One of the best things that blogging has given me is photos of my family that I would never have taken before. Especially the photos of the four of us. Before I started to join in with the Me and Mine Family Project I only had a few photos of us. Now I have all of these…

    Happy new home! One of my friends moved to their new home on 2nd December and she was stressed to the max. But it’s so worth it when you get your home in some sort of order and you can start to enjoy it. Lovely photos from the year.

    It’s so lovely to look back at the year just passed isn’t it? That’s one of my favorite things about this family portrait project. It’s always hard to get them to sit still but I think the non posed funny ones are the very best memories to recall though too. Gorgeous. Happy New Year! #meandmineproject
