Christmas was wonderful this year! It was a little surreal since it's the first time in 8 years that I haven't "come home" for Christmas. It's strange being on the other side and having those I'm close to come back to me.. hah.
I'm perhaps not an amazing enough photographer yet.. bc I haven't figured out for the life of me how to hang out with people I care about and shoot at the same time. I did manage to get some shots when I was with my parents and brother on Christmas day, but I decided not to bring my camera to the big family Christmas dinner (sorry I'm depriving you of photos of all of my adorable cousins!). Maybe one day I'll learn that balance.
Not your average Christmas ornaments... this is all mom
Yes, my dad's shirt says "wanna shag"... and we give hefty bags as gifts :)
Rylynn got a pig's hoof... eww
Mom and dad bought Taylor the same card... clearly we do our shopping separately
we go for the "warm" feel with our ornaments
Rylynn might even be too obedient
Oh the things we do to our dogs to make them look "cute"
My mom is beautiful... these photos don't do justice because I don't have an electronic flash for shooting inside. Hope you enjoy anyway :)
Among the fabulous presents this year, my dad got a wii (and wii fit plus), and Taylor and I got a gps. Anyone who knows me at all can vouch that this little machine is going to change my life.
My favorite game so far is the fencing game.. I love playing it as well as watching. Haven't tried boxing yet... I have a feeling that will be my next fav.
Most fun all of us have had together in a long time :)
Check out my mom's arm muscles! whoa
My mom double bags EVERYTHING.. will always be a mystery
How can you resist that face?
This year my mom got an extension on the kitchen as her major Christmas present.. but I think she might have liked these slippers dad gave her more
The end. See you in 2010!! Craziness.
Oh... and wedding photos to come! So excited!
