Writing about those ornaments last night made me more nostalgic than usual at this time of year, so I have been looking through our Christmas pictures from the past five years. There is nothing like a retrospective of your children on film to really bring home the cliche that "time flies."
Here is Kara last year. She was helping Dave put Christmas lights in our tree just outside our front door.
This is 2008. So proud of her fancy Christmas dress.
2007 at Dave's parents house. That yellow monkey, shockingly, is still around. He is affectionately know as Cheesy Monkey.
This was 2006. She is playing peek a boo with "pillow guy" - the 18 month old's favorite game.
2005. Kara's first Christmas. She is not quite 7 months old and loving the new feeling of sitting up all by herself.
I need a tissue.
