Christmas Fun  

We decorated a gingerbread house yesterday afternoon.

The finished product was pretty good.

Then we proceeded to take pictures for the Christmas card. Oh, the hilarity. (Not really.)

We tend to be a dramatic bunch.

And silly.

And out of 75 pictures, there isn't ONE that's usable for the Christmas card. Fuzzy, dark and red eyes everywhere. I still have 24 that aren't developed from my Nikon, so we'll see. Cross your fingers. You may have to dig out last year's picture and imagine us all a year older.
I feel:: sicksick

The gingerbread house looks awesome! And pshhh, those family photos are pretty cool, as well. :P

I hope there's something in the 24 you're able to use though. :)

If I had a higher resolution of photo to work with, I could photoshop away those problems for you quite easily. Right now, when I reduce the speckles, it wipes out your eyes:

But things which used to ruin pictures are not really problems anymore.

Sick? Are you ok?

The gingerbread house looks so good! You even have a chimney! Our house last year was pretty much icing because it kept falling apart. :( Is there a trick to keeping it together?

The trick would be that I bought the kit at Wal-Mart. :D

I decided not to go the Martha Stewart route this year.

And HEY! How are you, stranger?

Oh but baking it yourself is so satisfying! (Well, until it all falls apart and your brother starts crying) I just flat out refused to make one this year. Maybe I'll be game to try again next year? Hopefully with more planning, I'll actually have the time to make one. Maybe.

I'm sorry I've been so... absent recently! Life's getting to be one crazy ride, simply because of the amount of stuff I have to get done. I was just thinking yesterday about how well you must manage your time - you seem to be even more busy than I am and yet you still have time to keep in touch and post and write. Any pointers?

p.s. Merry Christmas!

Oh, I'm not all that busy. :)

And you just say, "For the next hour, I'm going to write." Sometimes I set a timer. *shrugs*
