The Infamous Christmas Couch Photos

I love a good tradition. A Christmas tradition makes it even better. Every year my family makes sure to gather for the holiday. We may not see each other a lot throughout the year but we make sure to get all together to spend the festive day as a whole. A few years ago we started the tradition of capturing this moment on camera. Then around the 3rd year of photos at Christmas, we realized we always crowded onto the same couch. 

And really... I'm guessing the maximum number of people that's suppose to sit on this couch is five. Yet... we still cram onto it and pose for photos. 

Now we realize and continue to make it happen. This year we'll have a new edition to the photo since Amy and Kenneth (on the far right) had a baby! This photo is from last year...

This was also the year Jonathan & Megan got engaged.

So this year, hopefully, we'll all be able to make it to my grandmothers and take another year's Family Christmas Couch Photo. I'd hate to see the tradition end and who knows, you never know what this year's could have in store.

I love Christmas traditions. I'm missing them so much not being home. I really hope my family's package gets here in time! It's great to see in a single picture how the family evolves throughout the years.
