From Christmas Cheer Meister To Grinch in 5.2

I wanted to do a post detailing our Christmas adventures complete with pictures from each celebration! However, this is how I feel about Christmas right now...

I am just wiped out. We had a great time! My presents...my camera, a vacuum for the schoolhouse, 2 Mary Engelbreit calendars, a office chair for the schoolhouse, pajamas, 6 handmade "felted" Mary Engelbreit ornaments (It took Lil Sis 10 hours to make each one!), shower curtain-handtowel-rug for schoolhouse bathroom, cherries towel and potholder, Our World cricut cartridge, stamp set, and I think that is all...I could be forgetting an item or two.

I have been playing with my camera...here are a couple of my fave shots so far...I feel so intimidated by this camera...but it is so fun to try to learn how to use it!

Playing with close up mode

My furry niece, Morgan.

It is great to be back...I have lots of fun planned for the New Year. First up...De-Christmas my blog! I am ready to move on!
Hope everyone had a great holiday and weekend!

I am so excited that you got your camera. I can't wait to see all the Scrappy goods now.

I am so tired too. But we pick up and carry on right. I love that picture of the passed out fun fest. Cute.

I hear you on the tired of Christmas thing. I might even be ready to take down the try and I usually push that off as long as possible.

Marilyn said...

Looks like you are figuring out that baby pretty quickly! You got some great shots! I guess it is back to normal life now, huh? Of course in my case, nothing is different, lol!

Love the new camera; I got the 12.2 Canon, which I am so very excited about. Your pictures are great! I am missing Christmas already.

I think what wipes me out most about Christmas is that New Years comes so fast--and another celebration to do! Can I come lay on your floor??! Love the furry neice and I totally hear you about the camera being overwhelming. I didn't use mine for 3 weeks after I got it--
