The Wielenga Christmas Photo Through The Years

 We've sent out a Christmas picture every year except last, and I thought today it would be fun to take a look at our annual Christmas photo through the years.  
The first few you'll have to forgive the quality - we didn't have a digital camera back in those old days. :)

2001: Obviously packing on some of those early marriage pounds!  
That's when I was a good wife 
and baked a dessert to eat after every four course meal.

2002: When our cats were our kids.

2003: Moved to Erie Road! 

2004: I can't seem to find!!  
I probably will remember what it was sometime in January...

2005: Obviously you can't tell from the pic,

2006: First Christmas picture with a precious little one to join us!

2008: And then there were four!  
This photo was taken in my friend Marie's bathroom.
In case you wanted to know.

2009:  Finally! 
 A baby girl is in mommy's tummy for this one!!

2010:Probably my favorite
 one of all, at my favorite place of all.  Silver Beach in Saint Joseph, Michigan!

2011: Procrastinated too long for the photo so we made a collage with our favorite shots.

2012: Kids are leaving the toddler stages behind!

2013: First year we skipped!  Life must have been too busy?  So much has happened since then I can't even remember! :)

And now for 2014:

A picture of our family at our new home, taken by our  talented friend, Josh Teo, in front of what is hopefully the dwelling we grow old in!

Merry Christmas to all my wonderful Kammy's Korner readers - thank you so much for following along in our endeavours!! 
 May you KNOW the true reason for the season, which is not what we so often make it about - packages under the tree - but the gift of God's son.  Born to a virgin almost two centuries ago, who's only purpose was to allow men to nail him to a tree, where God would punish him for our sins.  What an incomprehensible gift to mankind!

"For the wages of sin is death, but the GIFT of God is eternal life, through Jesus Christ our Lord"  Romans 6:23
