What the what? It’s already Thursday? Here’s some of what I’ve been up to…
1. Sunday morning we took our annual family pictures. Instead of hiring someone, my friends and I just trade off and take pictures for each other. It’s always a little chaotic, but the results are worth it. This year was no different. Here are a few outtakes that didn’t make it on to the Christmas card…
We call this photo shoot “The many faces of B”
We all kinda wanted to send this picture out on our card… would that be weird?
Florida…in the winter.
2. My cousin Jen and her family were in town this week and we had an impromptu family dinner last night! One of the perks of living in Orlando is that people are bound to want to come down and visit the theme parks — so while I enjoy visiting my family in Boston, I also enjoy their visits! It helps that my cousin’s son is 3 months old than L. Since my B & L don’t have any first cousins as of yet (*ahem*), we borrow my cousins’ kids – and let me tell you – they get SOOOO excited about their cousins.
3. The tree is up!
We usually buy a Christmas Tree the weekend after Thanksgiving – but it felt too early this year. We then stopped by a local stand on Sunday and they wanted $10 a foot for a tree. Say what? We usually get a 7-8ft. tree and there is no way in HELL I was going to pay $80 for a tree. So Dan and I went on Wednesday during lunch.
We typically get our tree at Lowe’s but this year Home Depot was closer to where we ate – so Home Depot it was! They had just gotten a shipment in that morning too – so we (well Dan – since I had to go back to work) brought home this beauty (it’s bigger than it looks. TWSS?).
We let it sit for a day and then decorated it tonight.
It’s Disco Tree!
Unlike last year, I don’t think it’s going to tip over!
I still haven’t gotten the decorations up on the outside of my house — but… baby steps.
So what have you been up to this week?
Three Random Questions:
What’s your “go to” silly face in pictures? How many first cousins do you have? Have you decorated for Christmas?
