Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas from the Lester family!

This year I decided to plan a frosty photo shoot for our Christmas cards with sweaters, scarves, hats and mittens. A couple of mugs of hot chocolate -- actually just whipped cream -- served as a great prop for the group photos. The photos at the end of the  shoot were really the cherry on top. Can you see the difference between sisters and brothers in these pictures? My sweet girls above.

And my boys. They love each other, too. To death, I am afraid.

Carson really wanted to put the whipped cream in Christian's face, and even though Christian agreed I initially said no. But then I reconsidered, repositioned them and snapped away as they laughed hysterically at Christian's whipped cream beard. These photos turned out to be my favorites from the afternoon!

Sweet Sisters.

Oh, Brothers!

The whipped cream in our hot chocolate: Christian, 10; Mary Ashley, 7; Emma, 5; and Carson, 12.

I hope your cup of blessings overflows this holiday season!

Merry Christmas,

I love this idea! Isn't it a blessing (most of the time) that each of them have a playmate??!!!

Beautiful! When I see your lovely family of two girls & two boys, it takes me right back to when my four eldest children were little. (they're all in their 20's now) Now I am blessed with three more little boys to keep me busy. It looks like you had great fun, Sally xx
