Then and Now

The first Christmas after we left the Amish was the first year we had a tree. A new tradition was born that year, of having the children sit in front of the tree for pictures. It's been fun watching them grow and seeing the difference each year makes.

The first year.

Buddy joined our family.

This year.


  1. We have a photo album specifically for photos we take of the kids in the same place each and every year. I love going through it, remembering days gone by, watching them grow right before my eyes.
    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and your beautiful family.

  2. Beautiful photos. You have a beautiful family. I wish you all a happy new year.:)

  3. I love the photos. Blessings to you and your family in the New Year!

  4. Blessings and Best wishes for you and your family in 2016!

  5. Such a beautiful family! We used to do this when our children were still at home. I get those pictures out every so often and look at them from birth clear through to when they moved out of the house. Thank you for sharing with us. Happy new year!
    Blessings, Betsy

  6. Oh, Mary Ann, your children are beautiful! I know you are so very proud of them.

  7. We do the same at our home. It's always amazing to see them grow! You have a beautiful family!
