Top 10 Photos to Take This Christmas!

Early in December my friend Katie posted to her blog the "Top 10 Photos to Take This Christmas!" I am happy to say I achieved most of these and want to share my joy with the world. Let us conveniently ignore the fact that it is now mid-January, shall we?

10. Outside of our home with the porch lights on: the lights are on, I swear!

9. Close up of my favorite ornament: Barbie & Ken ornaments we used as our wedding cake topper

8. An action shot of our family participating in a special tradition: the boys decorated cookies for Santa

7. Favorite family recipe(s) all baked up: all of my favorites from a very Ballard Christmas

6. A Christmas Collection: Patrick's Opus 'n Bill ornament collection

5. Kids holding all of their gifts at once: this is the first year we were in our own home on Christmas morning

4. Something special we did this season to keep the focus on giving to others: Topher bought and donated a board game to the woman's shelter and Nathan brought cleaning and bathroom supplies to class for their adopt-a-family

3. Group Photo on Christmas Morning

2. Dining table all dressed up for our Christmas meal: Morrison/Marx January Christmas at Mom's
