Snap me a pic oh pho-to man...

My son has recently informed me he would like to be a "picture man" when he grows up. "You know mom, the guy who takes pictures of things". Yeah bud, I know what a "picture man" is. I told him that that was a stellar idea, and I thought he'd be a wonderful photographer.

He proceeded to "show" me his talents whilst taking pictures of everything in sight.

Everything in sight.

Then he found the time delay button. Oh my. You can take a picture AND be in it yourself??

I think we've created a monster.

Here is his debut.

Time delay photos of Christmas Eve by ' Sayah'
(his little sisters nickname for him-since that's all she can pronounce)

Ya done good boy. Ya done good!!

There are dayz....

It's Christmas time.

How do I know?

Well...I have to spend my time shopping, wrapping, baking, decorating.

Which means some things just get neglected.

Okay. so not really.
You think I could function in this?
Dirty or dusty? Okay.
Messy? Nope.

On my day off one week I had to make 22 dozen shortbread. Yeah.
I babysat my niece, on top of my 3 kids. (well not exactly on top. She's little. That would hurt) She was here. So were my kids.

And, as you see, my house did not fair well.

Neither did I.
I ended the day by falling down the stairs, crushing about 1/2 of the shortbread.

Good times.

**btw** I can't blame the desk on the kids. It was me. ALLLLLLLL me.

So yeah.
It's Christmas.
Make it memorable.
We sure will.

Take some time and RELAX!!

Sometimes, life can get so very hectic and crazy, that you need someone (other than yourself like say...your HUSBAND) to remind you (or make you) slow down, take a break and RELAX.

Thanks honey. Once again reminded why I married you.

We are very much alive and well....just trying to enjoy this season, "Jesus' birth" , while dealing with the hectic craziness of life. Hoping that each one of you are taking time out each day to enjoy this beautiful, hope-filled time of year.
