Holiday cards and matching sweaters!

I happened upon these pictures taken on Thanksgiving day in 1999.

Ryan was 4 1/2, Caroline 2 1/2, and Chris and I looking much younger . . . um, ya, we haven't aged at all ;-).

It appears to be a photo shoot in my parents' Bountiful yard for Christmas cards that year - which would be back in the day when I planned for such events (i.e we all had a certain "Christmas/holiday" look), well, since about 2007, we're just happy to get a decent pic of all of us together - this year hopefully from deep within the 2010 archives. 

Since I'm on the subject of Christmas cards, look what I found in the same pile of pics . . .







It seems I used to take such great efforts to make sure everyone coordinated . . . I'm afraid those days are offically a thing of the past, but it was fun while it lasted :-).

I love it! Isn't it fun to look back?! Yeah, we'll be lucky if we even get a card out this year. I don't think we even have a picture in our 2010 archive of us all together.

I think it's so hilarious that instead of working on your cards for THIS year, you're posting about OLD cards! LOL.

BTW, I still have that first card in my book. And no, you two don't look older AT ALL. No fair.

Right on Kristin! I actually started this post, and thought the same thing, so started digging through our files to find some pics, finished my cards that same night, and THEN came back and finished this post a few days later - haha - my cards should be here tomorrow :-).
