Well, we managed to take our 2014 annual family Christmas picture in front of the tree right before taking it down this past weekend. Back when I started this tradition, it was just Jake and I and 2 of the dogs. Now this picture is much more of an ordeal and if I'm being honest, I actually kind of dreaded taking it this year. So I put it off and put it off until the tree was dead and we almost just said, forget it. But then I thought about how I would regret it so much if we didn't take it and I guilted Jake into it and we made it happen for the 8th year in a row... and I'm so glad we did.
Here is our picture from this year, and for comparison's sake, every year since we've been married.
