Great pictures Karen.. and I love looking back and seeing how the kids have grown!! It all happens so fast!! Great share as always Karen!!


The vignetting in 2007 doesn't bug me, probably because I'm we bit of a vignette addict. But it does have a different feel. Your current post processing is light and bright with a lot of clarity, like a hi-def TV. It creates a super-happy mood when you look at them. I have poor vision, and vignetted images look closer to how I see the world, darker and somewhat obscured.

Some days I just come here to get lost in your photos and leave feeling happy and at peace. Thanks for sharing your beautiful life with us, Karen!

I think I would like to be a part of your family! You guys look like you have so much fun!

I'm freezing looking at your uncle (right?) in short sleeves out in the snow. Love Courtney Lee's marshmallow branch. And 2007? I think you should get bonus points for the consistency in your vignetting from one shot to the next.


We sure live and learn don't we Karen!!? LOL...2007! Love your pics from this year...and yes, I agree Josh does owe you a nice, long walk in the woods and won't that be the most awesome walk ever? :)

Sandra Lamb

Looooooooooooooooveeeee the pictures! Your photos are AMAZING, AMAZING, AMAZING! Seriously, can I just Photoshop my families faces into your photos? HA! You’re such an inspiration to me personally. What wonderful family memories.:)

Nicole Ellison

wow your pictures are great as always....and about the vignetting....we all did it! LOL!! I can't beleive how grown up the kids look!!!!!

Kelly B.

The weather looked beautiful and I love how your whole family does this each year. Noticed Courtney Lee's personalized cookie box and wondered where you guys found them...Thanks again for your help this week!You are amazing!


Hahah about the vignetting...just remember it could have been could have used SELECTIVE COLOR!!!


Funny,about the vignetting, i was using it a lot 2 years ago and now i don't care for it much either;)

You all always look like you're having so much fun. I almost want to go out and get a real tree just to take the pictures-perhaps i will adopt a family that does and take pictures and pretend!
