All My Babies

I wanted to share a picture of our Christmas nativity. Unfortunately, as you can see, we were unable to have all the children together in a presentable manner. At least most of it looks cute. :-) The children did a great job.

Also, I just love looking down into Andrews face and seeing that all my children look like "our" children. They all have traits that look like each other. I decided to put the pictures all together to see if you can tell which child is which. The funny thing was that while I was putting this together David and Rebecca came in at separate times saying how cute Andrew was (the funny part was, none of the pictures I had up were of Andrew).

Now they are all up, plus one extra just for spice. Have fun!

2010 Siler Family Christmas Card

Merry Christmas!

I'm sure you've been curious to see how we used the pictures from our Christmas photo shoot (click here) in our Christmas card. Well, wait no more!

We've placed our year-end family summary (a.k.a Christmas letter), along with our photo, on our family website (click here).

Christmas Photo Shoot

We had been putting off taking family photos for our do-it-yourself Christmas picture until little Andrew came. It turns out that we're too afraid to take him outside still, so we ended up doing it piecemeal anyway. Regardless, we think the pictures turned out wonderfully! (In fact, Walmart didn't want to let us print them because they questioned whether we had permission from the copyright holder. It took some convincing for them to finally hand the pictures over--we had to fill out some form, and the children vouched for it, too! All that trouble for an image we threw together in PowerPoint!)

Here are our favorites of the nearly-200 we took today (stay tuned for the official card collage):

The Coveted Squeeze!

A lot of love

What is the youngest saying here?

Unto us a child is born...
