I didn't have my zoom lens at the time, I could have taken much better photos if I did, and then I would have won a set of Yokohama tires. Oh, well, next year!

I hate it. I'm okay if it's in and out and it's to buy me something, like a lens, a book, or a treat. But when I don't have a decent list, or idea of what I am getting, I get a bit grumpy, although I have to admit, I haven't been that grumpy. But I did get a big zit on my chin for the Christmas party tonight. Which by the way, we are going to in style, in a limo.
I've taken pictures mostly for my slow, and sad, Daily December album, but I'm too tire to get my camera and upload the pictures. I have an engagement shoot next week, and a maternity shoot the week after, with some new born shoots to follow. Very exciting!
The house is clean, won't be for long, decorated, all the shopping is done, I hope, the baking is pretty much done, if we don't eat it all between now and Christmas. Now I just need to stock up on my rest!

The house is decorated, the tree is up, and I'm not any closer to being finished my shopping.

I just remembered my Daily December album. What to do? It's only the first day and already I'm stressing about it. I've got an idea, the sun is shining and I'm taking a break from prepping tonight's class.
I may not take pictures and blog the album every day to show you, I might do every once in awhile and then the whole shebang at the end. Or maybe not, we'll see how it goes.

I went to a craft sale with Terrell, and then on to Michaels and hold your hats, I didn't buy anything. I didn't find anything I wanted or needed. And no, I'm not sick.
We had dinner at my parents last night and got all caught up with the F family from Thursday's shoot.
We've, and I use that term lightly, gotten a bunch of Christmas shopping under our belts.
My can-dented foot is causing me pain. I wish I didn't have to work today, I'd like to sit around, get caught up on Y&R and put my foot up.
I mailed my Christmas cards on Thursday, some people got them on Friday, I mailed them TOO early, what was I thinking?

I also believe communication is a big thing, you have a problem with me, tell me. Deal with me.
If you don't agree with this, or you think it's aimed at you, remove me from your blog list, don't come here any more. Maybe while you're at it, remove MY pictures from your blog.

Today, on U.S. Thanksgiving, I got a little heavy box full of goodies, Subaru, scrapbooking, dog themed and chocolate. Hershey's kisses, the kinds we Canadians can't get. Specifically Candy Corn, which I thought was pretty darn good, and Candy Cane, which is good too, but the best darn things are the Pumpkin Spice kisses. 3 bags of them. Which is darn good because I could eat one of them myself and no one would be the wiser, I'd have a stomach ache but what else is new?
Anyway, I want to wish my American friends a very safe and happy Thanksgiving. And to Amy, David and Trevor-Two-Thumbs-Up a very big "I'm so thankful I have the Internet and it led me to friends like you!"
This is totally mushy, must be the endorphins brought on by the wicked box of chocolate!

Last night he told me that the guy on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon had changed his name to Ochocinco and that the guy, Chad, was number 85. And I said "What does his jersey number have to do with anything?" and he's like "Don't you get it? Isn't it stupid?" and I still didn't get it. So I said "Tell me again what it is you are trying to say?" And that's when he said "Ochocinco is like Spanish for 85!"
Today, he sends me a cryptic email one that says he'll be shopping for bike parts on Dec. 15th instead of in the Spring. To which my usual sunny self replied "Says WHO?" and then I hit the send button, that's when the mental link we married people seem to acquire at "I now pronounce you man and wife" kicked in and I got it, maybe bike parts go on sale!
Ya, they don't and let's just say he can get his bike parts and I'll pay off my camera and lens.
My friend, Nancy, gave me a make-your-own-photo-coaster kit a few years ago and I was always too afraid to try it, but then Marg said she was making some stamped coasters and it prompted me to get my kit out. I headed off to Office Depot to get the images colour copied. And it worked! The kit came with 4 tiles, and more than enough of the other supplies to do at least 4 more tiles. I see many photo coasters in my future.

I will add embellishments and days of the month as I add photos. I will also add the year to the cover. I have to tell you, this was much easier than I thought it would be. I started yesterday mid-day, worked on it a few hours and then a few more this morning. I pulled everything from my stash that I wanted to add to it, trying to keep with the colour scheme of the Fa La La Making Memories paper I bought in the summer. By the time it is full, I will have to replace the binder rings with larger ones.

I had my Christmas Cocoa Card Tote class and it went great. I love this littel tote with it's cute cards. Good thing I made two.
Next Sunday is the Christmas Jingle Trifold album class. It's easier than it looks and makes a great gift. It's also easy to duplicate so you can make more. I will be making a few of them. I'm offering a choice of Christmas or Baby theme. I can't decide if I want to even start a Daily December album. The idea is that you make your album out of pretty much anything, it's very eclectic. I have so much stuff that it really shouldn't cost me anything because I could pull stuff out of my stash. And then you are supposed to photograph and journal your month of December. This is from shopevalicious.com. This is Ali Edwards' album. I love the hodge podge feel of the albums, I love the documenting. I don't know if I will love the work. I can take pictures every day, I know I can do that, but of what? 30 days of Linus and Sally will get pretty boring. Maybe I should make mine a Weekly December album or Every Other Day in December.
I also want to make an advent calendar. So many things, so little time! By the way, where did the year go?

I've started watching Glee, it's ingenious. I love it. I love the singing and dancing! I can't sing, but I know most of the songs they use and I will sing them, much to my family's dismay, and I have most of them on my ipod, okay, not the Thong Song. And on Christmas I will have the soundtrack, I bought it from Amazon.ca and told Kerry he can put it in my stocking. And I can't dance, and you can't really count the months of Latin American ballroom lessons we took after Emily was born, because Kerry has conveniently forgotten every single thing we were taught and ballroom dancing just isn't the same when only one person can remember only half of the steps. And I didn't love high school, maybe if we had Glee Club it would have been different.
So as you can see from the day's blog posts, I have been watching Glee clips on youtube.com. Not exactly productive, but it makes me feel good.
The actress that plays Sue Sylvester was on Conan last night, she's hilarious. She might be my favourite.
I've got a list today and on the top is Kerry's "We need 12-18 more red bulbs" so I guess it's a trip to Canadian Tire to get them. He loves his Christmas lights.

Keep checking back to Smugmug, I will be slooooowly uploading photos.
This is where it gets sad, annoying, disrespectful. Dozens of Girl and Boy Scouts are in the parade. Sure they aren't all in formal uniform like the RCMP, Cadets, etc. Their uniforms are fairly casual now. But they are there in the parade paying their respects. But the people watching the parade don't have a clue and figured that after the Cadets parade was over and they started walking right behind them, infront of the Scouts. I just don't get it!
The park was packed with people. We couldn't see anything but these kids could. I don't know how many ended up in that tree, but it was a perfect tree for holding them all. Not one kid fell out.
Saw this on Veronica's blog and thought it'd be fun! A great way to take my mind off the white stuff falling from the sky.
