night street*
An uninspiring night street photo. Took this from inside of my car.... too cold to get out and set up a tripod. The dashboard makes a good one in a pinch.
Christmas came and went. I was unprepared but got through it. I guess I had these ideas in mind and not all of them were accomplished so I felt that I was unprepared. We spent Christmas Eve at my cousin's house. We had a yummy dinner, kielbasa, sauerkraut, potatoes. Mmmm... On Christmas Day, we opened gifts in the morning. David's big gift was a Varsity Jacket. He also got a bowling ball, shoes, and a bag. Emily got an ipod touch, and a slew of clothes. After all of that. We went to my parents. She made a lasagna dinner. Emily got a mini fridge from them. lol She has been wanting that forever. David got lots of shirts and hoodies from them. He was difficult to buy for this year. He didn't want anything.
Today we spent time relaxing. My brother and his family will be here tomorrow evening. I'm so excited!

It looks like Christmas threw up in my living room.

51/52 red*, originally uploaded by Jen likes to snap pics*.
These are the cranberries just before they were stabbed and threaded to make a pretty little garland for the Birds of Winter. So far they have yet to find it. I'm going to have to move it to a quieter area out of my backyard. I don't think the birds like that obnoxious puppy or being watched by a very fat cat, even though he is behind glass.
The theme is red this week. I had so many photos this week that were red. I ended up using this one because it's just different, not so Christmasy. I'm really not in the Spirit yet. I'm trying though. I have my Christmas music playing and the scents of the season in the air (thanks to my Wallflowers from Bath and Bodyworks). I'm even doing a Count-Down-to-Christmas photo project. That's already getting old and I've only done 4 photos. This weekend we have 2 different family Christmas parties to attend. I'm not ready. I can't get motivated. It will feel like Christmas on Christmas Day.

music* ornament from our Christmas tree. Emily plays the flute and we got this for her one year. Each year the kids get a special ornament. When they are on their own my plans are to give them their ornaments.

... looking out my window. Pondering the times past.

Today was David's birthday. I cannot believe he is 17! Seriously, where did my "little boy" go?
We enjoyed dinner at Texas Roadhouse with my parents. They surprised all of us by telling them that it was David's birthday. Of course, the staff embarrassed him. They made him stand on the booth, all 6' 2" of him. They clapped and yelled and shouted that he was 17 and for everyone to give him a big birthday "yeeha!" It was funny! He was sure red when he sat back down. =D
