Me and Mine | January 2016

Tuesday, 19 January 2016

I'm ashamed to say that this is the only photograph I have of the five of us together. Isn't that awful? 

I have tens of thousands of photos of the kids, a fair few of my husband with the kids, a handful with me in them too, but absolutely none of the whole family. 

This madness must stop. 

I've seen some of my favourite bloggers take part in a photography project called 'Me and Mine', where they take a family portrait each month for a year. This is it. The perfect motivation for me to capture my favourite faces in one place for a whole year. 

I've cheated ever so slightly with the first photo, as it was taken on new year's eve... almost January. But as it's our first and only family portrait to date, I really wanted to include it. Plus, I love it. 

The kids had dressed up in their new Star Wars costumes for our little family NYE party, we'd just finished an awesome lightsaber battle and kitchen dance-off, complete with disco lights, and were about to send them all off on a very exciting treasure hunt (more to come on that).

Amazingly all three of them managed to stay up long enough to see in the new year; even if Dan and I were flagging and ready for bed. You'd think they'd all have slept late the following day wouldn't you? You'd be wrong.

This little group of people are my absolute world and I can't wait to look back at the end of 2016 at a full year of family photos. With all five of us in them.
