|My little brother was in A Christmas Carol. I stole his hat. And we got photobombed.
|BJ's sister took this one. We were watching a movie...
|Just getting ready to cut down our Christmas tree...
|Look what we dragged out!
|Probably should have known at this point it was too tall.
|But, we didn't realize it until we got it in the house, and BJ had to cut 4 ft. off the bottom.
|We ran out of lights. And the store ran out of lights. It stayed like this for a few days.
|Eventually we got the rest of the lights on... and ornaments... and some presents.
|The tree with even more presents...
|There was supposed to be a present in this box, but I let the cat stay there...
|Best tradition ever! Christmas shopping with my dad and my sister. My sister has been looking for a pair of cute black boots for four years. She finally found them.
|We watched BJ's daughter's dog while she was away for Christmas. The dog and the cat got along fine until the last day. The cat got the dog's eyelid with her claw. I was just glad she didn't get her eye poked out.
|The dog and the horse were friends as long as the dog stayed away from his grain. (Dogs don't speak horse language... or cat language... She did not understand when the other animals told her to 'Stay Away!')
|We took the dog to see my sister's dogs. They got along great. They played hard for four hours...
|A selfie while at my parents' house.
|Sometimes Christmas parties wear him out... :)
|All the dogs checking out their Christmas presents.
|Guess I did good... :)
|She could hardly wait for her present.
|And she loved it.
|We went sledding with some of the kids.
|He stopped. His sled didn't.
|My favorite quote that day was after she went down the hill the first time, "I clearly almost died!"
|My bro-in-law totally looked at the camera and smiled, but I was too slow...
|Last year, they buried me. This year, it was Justin's turn.
|Captain America came for Christmas
|More present opening.
|Guess who got a Macro lens for Christmas? ME!
|"What is she chewing on? Oh... a toothbrush... excellent."
|Guess who I got to meet in real life?? I've met a lot of friends online, but it was even better to get to see his face and give him a hug.
And now... holidays are over. I not only survived them - I actually enjoyed them. Maybe I can remember that fact as next November approaches.
