Blast From The Past ~ Christmas 2000

This week for Blast From The Past I am featuring Christmas 2000. These were the first pictures I could find where we started back the tradition I had when growing up of sitting on the stairs Christmas morning. The kids sit on the stairs and wait while hubby and I go down, turn on some Christmas music, turn on the Christmas tree lights, and make sure the camera is ready to go. This tradition was started when I was a young girl. I remember sitting on the steps of my parents home. We never did the tradition before in our family mostly because we did not have steps in our trailers or the apartments that we lived in while the kids were growing up. We moved into our Habitat home in the summer of 1998. According to the photos we did not think of the tradition until 2000. Now, our tradition is that the first photos to be taken on Christmas are of the kids on the steps.

I hope you enjoy these Christmas photos from 2000.
My how the kids have grown.
Besides the photos on the stairs I choose only one photo of each child from Christmas Day 2000.
