A Family Capture {My Captured Moment #103}

After almost two years I have decided that this will be my last My Captured Moment linky. I’ve really enjoyed hosting this link-up over the last 103 weeks and getting to know so many bloggers who have kindly linked up over this time. As we’re coming to the end of the year, I thought it was a good time to end it, so that I can start the new year afresh with some new challenges and a fresh start. A massive thank you to each and everyone of you that have supported me over the last two years, it really has been a pleasure!

Back to this week, and I’ve decided to go out with a Family Captured Moment – it felt very fitting.

Last weekend we were staying with my sister-in-law and her family in Derbyshire. We’d gone up for a few nights to celebrate an early Christmas with them, as we won’t see them over the Christmas weekend. On Saturday we all got dressed up and head out to a local country pub/ restaurant for a big Christmas style lunch. Then headed back to their house to play games, eat chocolates, drink Prosecco and generally relax. For me this is what Christmas is all about, being with family and having fun.

Before we headed out for lunch, I took advantage of the fact that we were ‘all dressed up’ to get a few pictures of us all as a family. I’ve been pretty rubbish at taking family pictures recently, so it was really lovely to have this opportunity.

Incase you’re interested, all three girls’ dresses are from GapKids/ BabyGap.

Share your Moments

Your ‘My Captured Moment’ can be a single picture or a series of shots, new (taken this week) or old, with or without words. The idea is to simply share a moment in time you’ve captured on your camera and make sure it doesn’t go unseen. This could include vintage shots of your own childhood and beyond or a simple picture you’ve recently taken and want to ‘show off’.

How to Play Along

• Link up every Thursday to Sunday (ending at 11.00pm) • Add my badge (or link back to my website using #MyCapturedMoment) at the bottom of your post. • Share the love – try to comment on a few of the other posts. After all that’s what it’s all about.

Go Social

Tweet your posts to me @HeleddLavender using the hashtag #MyCapturedMoment and I’ll retweet. Hashtag your picture #MyCapturedMoment on Instagram (follow me @HeleddLavender) so we can share our pictures and hopefully get some new followers and likes.
