Cristina over at Home Spun Juggling got me thinking about holiday pictures a few weeks back. So, I decided to post a photo essay of the pics we've sent out every year since Luke was born, back in 2000.
I look at them now and think, 'they were never that small!' But of course they were, making this trip down memory lane even more amazing to me, who was there.
Luke, at about four months.
When he was about 16 months - not walking yet, but he loved to balance on his tootsies!
A friend took this of us in our backyard - Ben and I have changed somewhat since then too!
Luke at three - when he saw this pic a few minutes ago, he got all nostalgic telling Owen about the amazing leaf piles we used to have at our old house. Nostalgic for him, maybe, but not for the grown-ups who had to rake all those oak leaves!
In this one, Luke is four and Owen is about six months old.
Our five- and one-year-olds, on a hike in the New Hampshire mountains.
The Halloween that Luke was six and Owen was two.
The boys with Jeffrey the Snowman in 2007
Luke and Owen last year, at ages eight and four.
And now they are nine and five. Amazing how time flies, isn't it?
