Dreading Christmas?  Borrow a Friend's Tradition


This past Christmas was hard for my family.  There is always much to be grateful for, and it is, after all, a time to celebrate Christ.  But my mother-in-law had advanced ALS. We couldn’t help but remember all the Christmases when she was healthy and cooking entirely too much food.  We tried to have our big tradition of decorating the Christmas tree, but truly, our hearts weren’t in it. One night my kids came running in to say that the neighbors had the life-sized antique child's train they have displayed in their front yard, running to raise money for Cystic Fibrosis.  They have been doing this or something like it for 16 years.  We went there instead.  I decorated the tree by myself.  Sometimes a friend’s tradition was part of your tradition all along, and helps you through the ones you can’t get through on your own.

Want to incorporate your sport, art, or activity into your senior pictures?  I mean, come on!  How many hours did you spend doing it?  How close are the friends you made?  It deserves at least a nod during this time when you mark one of the moments between childhood and adulthood, between knowing what comes next and having too many options!

You'll find ideas for Art, Band, Basketball, Cheer Cheerleading, Choir, Drill Team, Golf, Newspaper, Soccer, Softball, Tennis, Theatre, Track and Field, Ultimate Frisbee, Swimming and Diving, Broadcasting, Yearbook, Volunteer, Volleyball, Colorguard, and N.H.S. National Honor Society.  If you want ideas for Football, and Cross Country, I have other blogs devoted to those.

Here are ideas for all kinds of high school seniors and if you are in North Texas, especially the DFW area, I would be thrilled to take your senior portraits!
