all dressed up

I'm not so great at math, but I can tell you that the more kids you have in a picture, the harder it is to take a good one. Here are my attempts at capturing the little ones all dressed up in their Christmas finery for church on Christmas Sunday.

(you can tell this is pre-haircut for jack)

I love Christmas Sunday. I love everyone dressed up--especially the children-- I love looking out over the congregation and seeing all variations of Christmas colors. I love singing the Christmas music, especially trying to bust out the harmony on "Angels We Have Heard on High." I like teaching the children that day, and watching them make their presents for their parents, chatting while they make cards to go with it. I like their squeals of delight when I give them those lame-butt Christmas tree cakes from Little Debbie.

And I really like dressing up the girls in their coordinating dresses (how much longer will that last?), laying out their shiny black church shoes, seeing them get excited over picking out their hair accessories, etc. It's just kind of fun, you know, a fun nerdy little tradition. Then I go back to my underachieving life already in progress.


  1. So beautiful! I, too, love these traditions! K's already started not letting me dress them alike... sigh... why? When did THAT happen... so you saw our church clothes... unmatched & crazy but I guess that's just "The Marriners"! =) Lovely photos - all of them!

  2. Too funny! I think you're pretty good at math... I don't know if that's a compliment coming from me???

    Hope you guys had a Merry Christmas!

  3. Love these pics Aim. You did a good job! :) Beautiful babies!!!
