Behind The Picture: Christmas Edition

It has been quite some time since I wrote a behind the picture post. Basically, I share some pictures and tell the stories behind them!

Here’s a look at the pictures we took for our Christmas card this year πŸ™‚

Family Christmas picture

-We took these photos in our backyard with a tripod; no fancy photographer here.

-Sadie is obsessed with our next-door neighbor and the second we went outside, she wanted to hang out with her. Our neighbor had to bribe Sadie with a snack to take pictures with us πŸ˜‚

Toddler in Christmas dress

-Sadie’s dress has a bow on the back and when Jimmy got her changed for the pictures, he wasn’t sure which side of the dress was the front. He ended up putting it on her backwards and she looked like she was wearing a bowtie. I couldn’t stop laughing!

-Sadie’s hair bow is so cute… but she very rarely keeps one in for more than a few minutes πŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ

Girl and Siberian Husky

-I don’t know how we got Niva to sit still for this picture?!

-She also got a major case of the zoomies and almost knocked Sadie over a few times 😳

-My hair? It pretty much never looks like that. That took some strategic taming and curling, lol.

Toddler hanging in tree

-Sadie didn’t want to take a picture with Jimmy holding her, so he pulled the cool dad card and let her hang from our dogwood tree. This ended up being one of my favorite photos!

-After this picture, she wanted to hang from the tree again. And again. And again. She wasn’t very happy when we went back inside πŸ˜‰

Guy holding black cat

-We had to bring Malcolm in on the fun! We’re those people who send Christmas cards with our cat in the pictures πŸ€“

-Niva is really good with Malcolm in the house, but when he comes outside, she instantly wants to hunt him. Jimmy was holding him to make sure he didn’t get down and run away from Niva.

All of the memories these pictures bring to mind are such blessings!

Do you ever have “behind the picture” moments?
