Christmas, for Real!

At last, the big day is here.
The day dawned clear and bright, perfect!

I cleaned the house yesterday, which made today more relaxing.  We ate the last of the Christmas cake while opening our stockings.  We had breakfast, got ourselves ready for the day, then we took pictures.  Sounds easy but when you are dealing with an unfamiliar camera and a dog that can't sit took some time.

I started by getting the camera set up and trying the self timer.  The first one turned out quite decently
but this is what I looked like when I realized it was taking TEN pictures before it stopped.
Hmmmmm, something isn't right...
I could never get it to take only ONE shot with the timer but we did get a couple of family pictures that were shareable.  hahaha, our tree is so small it's completely hidden behind Bill and I had to crop the picture so it didn't look like he had a tree growing out of the top of his head.
My favorite
Since it was taking TWO pictures, Titan could only sit still for one and then he was done, so we had a few where Bill and I looked good but Titan was blurry.
This one is just terrible AND Titan is blurry...
Scott and Kris came for dinner...filet mignon, garlic mashed potatoes and green bean casserole.  The weather was warm enough that Bill didn't freeze while grilling the steaks, always a plus.

Trevor called Scott and everyone got to FaceTime with him, which was nice.  We even got a good picture of the McGovern men before they headed home.

Wendy called from Texas and talked about their visit so far...lots of church and lots of kids.

I called and talked with Greg, he was fighting a cold and already in bed.

Our Christmas celebration was spread out over a couple of weeks but it was fun and now it's over.  Time to get organized and packed for Florida.

Thanks for stopping by...
