A couple of you had said that you were curious what it was that put that smile on her face. Well, she went to a place called Longabergers. She fell in love with their stuff and let me tell you, it's not cheap. Although they do have some tote bags that are pretty nice and very reasonable. Amanda has a couple of them and I really do like them. So anyway, she found these mugs that were $40.00 for a set of 2. I told her that the dollar store sells them for a buck and you don't have to get upset when you drop one and break it. She wasn't buying it so I bought the pricey mugs.
The picture isn't very good but you can make out what the mug looks like. They are nice and they are huge but more than I would pay if it was for myself. They were actually on sale when I bought them so it was only $30.00 for two. Still way too expensive in my book.
Duke dressed up in his festive red sweater that Santa brought for him. He was a little too excited so getting a picture of him that wasn't a total blur was not an easy task.
After we opened gifts Amanda and I were playing with the camera and trying to get some good pictures. I thought it would be nice to get a picture of the two of us in front of the tree so I set up the tripod and used the timer. This first one was really odd. I have no idea how this happened. All I did was set the timer and then jump over next to her. I swear I did not do anything to this picture at all. Check out my face. It looks like I'm a ghost and you can see right through my face.
I wonder if I am the ghost of Christmas past, present or future?....lol
This next one was taken exactly the same way on the exact same settings. I did fix the lighting and color on this one a little but no ghosty look to this one at all.
