One of the many things I like about my siblings is that we all have different strengths.
If I need help finding a unique gift for someone, I ask Sam.
If I have questions about anything to do with money or investments, I ask Ben.
If I have questions about my phone or computer, I ask Bizzy.
If I need help with anything math-related, I ask Philip.
When Christmas comes around each year, I always put on my design hat and start creating our family Christmas card. My siblings and parents know that is “my thing” and they just let me run free. They will give input as to their favorite photos and will answer questions if I have them but overall, everyone steers clear of Jess. This year, with a one-year-old running around, I had to keep the design VERY simple. I was thankful a storm day that allowed me time to complete this project.
My mom is a great photographer but it is impossible for her to be behind and in front of the camera at the same time. With that being said, my parents hired a photographer this year.
About two hours before we were supposed to be in the studio, my dad called and said that they were still harvesting beans and he couldn’t leave his business. Thankfully, our photographer was able to travel to Forest River on such short notice.
The wind was a little rough on our hairdos BUT we were able to get some great shots! In some of the photos, you can even see the trucks in the background dumping beans!
Merry Christmas from the Schanilec Family!
