Christmas roundup

Once again I had to struggle to get everyone agreeable to the annual family photo.  It's so much easier when children are younger and more happy to pose for the camera!  And this year we had to factor in a time-delay shutter with an energetic puppy who just wanted to escape and play ...
We have had a lovely couple of days here, Christmas day at our home and Boxing Day at my sisters.  I feel truly blessed to have such a great family and as people have grown up and found husbands/wives/partners everyone has joined into the extended family so well. 
This is just a quick post for the moment to wish everyone a happy and healthy post-Christmas - I'm enjoying blog hopping around to see what you have all been up to, not too much time to leave a message on every blog at the moment, but I will be back!

It is good to have an annual photo of the family together and I know what you mean about reluctant game players. As children grow and marry and have their own families it does get even more difficult, but like you I am blessed and able to spend the holiday period with them. Hope your Christmas was more restful than the time running up to it.

We have 3 reluctant 'children' round here....getting a photo of all of us together is well nigh impossible....glad you're still managing it.
