A Story Behind the Picture – Our First Christmas

Today I wanted to link up with sweet Elle for a Story Behind the Picture!


This picture was taken in November of 2010. We had just moved in together a few months backย and were putting together our first Christmas tree as a couple.

Christmas Day 2010-We were taking pictures at my dad’s house and Chris kept making funny faces when I would take the picture…



So I thought I would make a funny face too, except he didn’t…


We finally got our shit together to take a normal photo…



When we went over to my mom’s house we had taken some pictures in the snow. When we tried to take a selfie, Chris decided to photobomb with a snowball to my face. You can see it coming to the left!


Hilarious, that one…you can see his evil grin and everything! Hahahaha

I will never forget our first Christmas together because we had two new nephews (both his sister and my sister had babies a month apart!) and it snowed on Christmas! Something that is so very rare here in Alabama. Christmas is our favorite season and it is such a special time of year. I will forever cherish these photos and I look back at them every year around this time and just smile. He is still making me laugh.

Thanks Elle for hosting this wonderful link up! I hope you do it again next month because I already have some pictures picked out for it!!! Spoiler alert, they are from Christmas pasts as well!

    Hahaha, these are great- especially the snowball one! Sometimes the outtakes are the ones you remember more than the “nice/normal” one; I need to stop deleting them! You guys look like you have a lot of fun together ๐Ÿ™‚

    The snowball to the face is fantastic! This reminds me that I should try to dig up some pictures from our first Christmas that we were actually in the same place (I think we dated for a couple of years before we spent any holiday together). So long ago!

    You guys are super cute .
