Day One: Family | Christmastide – 12 days of blogging


Happy Christmas!

I’m excited for the 12 days of blogging that will coincide with Christmastide (the twelve days of Christmas).  It’s a series of blog posts of photos I haven’t had a chance to post!

Since it’s Christmas day today, I thought the first post would be about my family.  Well… primarily my nieces and nephew, as they are so fun and growing up so fast.  This year I’ve stayed in Vancouver for Christmas and, while I saw my (Saskatchewan) niece in October and I will see my (Ontario) niece and nephew in January, I still miss them lots and lots today!!!

This is my family (summer 2012):

John & Anna were pretty excited about bike riding this summer.

I went back home this October because my Grandpa passed away.  Grandpa was 90.  I miss him.

It was nice to be home then – it was almost Norah’s first birthday!  I was able to take some family photos for the special occasion.

So much to discover – like strawberries and pineapple!

And books are her favourite.

I’m looking forward to visiting John & Anna in their new house this January – I’m sure I’ll have more pictures to share from that visit!

Merry Christmas!

    I am constantly in awe of your talent Marlis. We just put up a few of our pictures in our house (yes, we are that far behind), and I LOVE looking at them. You know how to capture people. And love. Your family is very lucky to have you around to capture all the love of your family!!

    Thanks Lenore! I'm so happy to hear that your photos are on the wall, no matter when they get there! Your session was so fun - and it was easy to capture the love between you and Brett :)
    Merry Christmas!
