christmas in october

over the weekend, ryan's brother, sister-in-law, and two nephews came up to visit from north carolina.  we took a trip down to ryan's parents' house on saturday to see them and to celebrate "christmas" with them since we won't be seeing them again for a while.  ryan's dad made "chrismas dinner" and his parents decorated for christmas and even put up their christmas tree in their living room.  it was so nice to spend time with everyone.

while everyone was together on staurday, we were able to get a family photo.  (thank goodness for tripods and camera timers!)  we were pretty impressed by the fact that we were able to get a picture with everyone looking at the camera . . . even ryan's parents' kitty ginger!

merry christmas in october!
love, laurie

I'm glad these photos turned out so well. It is so seldom that we all can get together and it is good to have photos to remember those times. We really enjoyed seeing everyone.

That was a fun day being with everyone. The portrait of the family really came out nice. You look good holding the little one.
