Three Christmases...

This weekend, we celebrated our somewhat delayed NCT Christmas party... yes, we were a little late, but the Christmas season is always so busy, we held off until the New Year.

It was a lovely afternoon of catching up; the kids playing together so comfortably; eating a lot of food. And, of course, we had to take the annual photograph. Our third Christmas with these little munchkins...

As I'm sure you can imagine, attempting to photograph seven 2-year-olds was a barrel of laughs!

The Outtakes...

Then the Dads got involved...

And finally we got there...

From this... (Christmas 2011 - aged 4 months)

To this... (Christmas 2012 - aged 1 year, 4 months)

To this...(Christmas 2013 - age 2, 4 months)

And yes... they are all still in their same positions, except little Matthew who has moved back to South Africa (we missed you!), but Heidi was our new addition, and by next Christmas, there will be a least three more to add to the photo!

Oh boy! That's going to be fun!


  1. Aw, sweet! So lovely that you have all kept in touch. I remember trying to take photos of all our group, just about managed the first yr, not managed since!

  2. Oh that is lovely, I hope you can keep taking these photos for many years to come! #MagicMoments

  3. Love this, we used to do an NCT one in the new year too, it's a lovely idea. Great photos of them all lined up! #MagicMoments

  4. Oh wow that is so lovely! What a great idea :) x

  5. How lovely is this! What a change as well, they all look so grown up now :)

  6. Brilliant! What a lovely idea.

  7. That's so lovely that you have a picture from every year. We never quite managed to get all of our babies in the same place at the same time so I've not got a picture of them all together, but when one family moved away we made their little girl a quilt with all of the babies' handprints as a memento.

  8. awww this is lovely, how amazing that you had such a lovely NCT group and that you have remained in touch!

    thank you for sharing and linking up with #Magicmoments x

  9. The one with them in the high chairs is AMAZING! We have done the same with our NCT group, except we normally do it on halloween! x

  10. what adorable photos - we used to do that with our antenatal group for the first few years. xxx
