The Holidays are over, sharing my memories...

The holidays may be over now, and the New Year is only a few days away, so I thought I'd share my Christmas Memories.

It started out rough with a failed portrait session at Portrait Innovations. If you've friended me personally on Facebook, you already know my feeling about "that" place.. If not.. I'll spare you the horridity and tell you NEVER go to Portrait Innovations !! after 45 minutes of watching people who came in after us, sit for pictures, pay and leave.. we spoke up and then customers decided that they would stick their nose in our business. Now we had 8 adults and 5 children... We wanted several poses but most importantly to my MIL was a photo of her & FIL with the 5 grandchildren and a full family picture.
We could have all together spent well over $300.00 with all of our different family pictures, but instead we left empty handed and very angry.

After that, we decided to do pictures at home as best we could...

Here is a slide show of our home created portrait session:
*First is our whole family:
niece Izzy, BIL, SIL, my brother (fresh from Iraq), me, hubs
newest niece Gabby, MIL, FIL, Luke , CJ, SIL, & Anthony
*BIL & SIL's family
*MIL & FIL with Grandkids
*my BIL with his girls

Next is a slide show of Christmas Eve , Christmas Day, and the 26th when we all got together for dinner.
There are various pictures of the family doing different whatevers..... Oh, each pictures cycles once for 8 seconds)

Now my brother is making the drive back to Louisiana, Hubby is at work and my boys have a week off to enjoy their gifts. All in all, it was a nice Christmas with healthy happy families and well behaved children. Great food and great memories...

I hope you and your family had a wonderful holiday season as well!
