Mommy and Me Monday- The 42nd Edition- Christmas Tree Style


It’s time again for Mommy and Me Monday. Pop out from behind that camera and capture yourself in action with your kids.  Check out the inaugural Mommy and Me Monday for more information.

I think this is the first year that we have ever put the tree up the weekend after Thanksgiving.  It just doesn’t usually happen. 

Something in church last week motivated me to do it.  The magical special time of Christmas. 

The birth. 

The wonder. 

The joy.

And this weekend, we needed to capture our pathetic cute little Charlie Brown Christmas of a tree with the family.  (Thank goodness for the timer on the camera and the fact that the light blinks giving the girls something at which to look.)



Join in this week.  Let’s see those beautiful mommas in front of the camera with your little ones.

Mommy and Me Monday at Really, Are You Serious?

**There really is only one requirement here, a picture of you and your baby or babies; your children, your “baby” (ie significant other) or even your fur babies.  If your picture doesn’t feature you (meaning you must be in the picture), I will have to delete your link.  It’s not fair to the others that follow the rules.**

Make sure you head over and check out all of the other Mommy and Me Monday posts and leave them some comment love.  It makes me sad to go to posts at the end of the day and only see one comment.  Please spread the love!  And, I never mind the comments, either:)

Trying out a different linky this time!  What do you think?

    That is a great family picture! Everyone is looking (and looks good) at the camera which is a miracle itself. I love your post about the birth, the wonder and the joy. I am trying so hard to concentrate on that this Christmas season and not all the stuff. Thanks for sharing your Christmas tree and family with us!
