Every year we setup the tripod, line up the family, and take a few pictures.

This year's photos were taken over two sessions: one in South Africa, and another on a different set of steps as we're spending some time in New Zealand.

If you're wondering what happened to the girls Lily and Poppy, they're with my mom in law, living the spoilt life on a farm, chasing donkeys, chickens and bunnies on a daily basis. Their new best friend is Biscuit the cat. ;-)They'll always be in our hearts and we know we'll see them again soon.

Tell us, do YOU take annual pictures? Leave us a link in the comments, we'd LOVE to see.
