2. We attempted to take our Christmas picture with a tripod and our new handy-dandy remote. Obviously this will NOT be one of the finalists for this year's card. My husband couldn't get the remote to work, and the kids were goofing off when the camera finally snapped. All I have to say is that family photographers are grossly underpaid for the grief they endure. Getting five people to all smile and have their eyes open in the same photo is a daunting task. We had snow blindness in one location, high winds that blew our hair in our mouth at another, and curious cows fighting and pooping in the background of another. Just keep this in mind if you receive one of our cards.
3. Later that evening, my husband and I had a date at his company Christmas party. Here we are enjoying the merriment of the evening. If you don't recall from last year's Christmas Party Post, it's held at our local steak house. The one that a famous country singer comes to when he's elk hunting on our mountain. He wears Wranglers and his initials are G.S. That's all I'm going to say about it.
6. My computer is still dead, and I'm still forced to share the little lap-top with my husband who is writing a 15 page paper for one of his college courses. This is the final week of the semester, so he's totally hogging it from me. It's as if he thinks "college" is more important than writing ridiculous little blogs. Can you believe it?!? Totally Kidding. I think a new computer is on our horizon, and it can't get here soon enough! Sharing a lap-top is cramping my blogging style...not to mention that I don't have enough space to upload pictures for editing.
7. I'm only 3/10ths of the way done with Christmas shopping and it's T-minus11 days until Christmas. AAAAHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
