But I will get there!

Just to make me (no one else minds, I'm sure) happy.

Here are a few scenes from
Christmas 2009

I wasn't a blogger then and photos were of people.
The decorations were second thought.
I was busy snapping Sweet Old Bob
sneaking his second slice of pie.

I have told several of you that 
blue and white are my favorite colors.

When photographing last year I 
the photographer was out of my his mind.
In 2010, I will be photographing with you in mind.
I certainly hope 2010's photos will be better.
Do you see a New Year's resolution developing?

Took a lot of crappy cropping! 
to edit out our family clutter.
We were actually living it, at the moment!

We had to PRETEND 
there was snow in Savannah!
I even had the air conditioning on trying to keep this guy

Still a little snow visible here.
We were freezing our swimsuits off! 
The trim on the china is gold as is the napkin.
I guess I got what I paid for with that photographer.

Mrs. Clause was in the kitchen.
I heard her offer to help with the dishes
in exchange for some candy.

I was able to pay her off with this!
Works every time for every tummy!

 On the kitchen tree!

Allow me to wish each of you




Please come back
for the 2010 Tour

Please leave a comment
They are like Christmas presents to me.

I'd say you were doing very well at photography last year! Love the blue and white ornaments -- I'm using those colors -- with silver -- in my dining room this year. Once I take some photos, I'll post them. Enjoy decorating!
