Merry Christmas!!!

Wow, Christmas Eve is here!!!

We actually had snow for the first time in 40+ years a week or so ago in our part of Texas. Most of it didn't make it past the trees in our yard, but our second floor balcony had an inch or two.

I was taking some photos with my phone and then realized I had to get out my real camera to capture this pre-Christmas weather miracle. Heck, my kids have never even seen snow before! Unfortunately  I was in a rush because the boys were sick of me taking photos, so I didn't notice I was shooting in manual with my focus set to the wrong part of the lens... By the time I corrected the problem the kids were over it and I was only able to grab a few more shots and almost all of them were fuzzy (I forgot to adjust my ISO higher)! Seriously, I need to spend more time with my real camera, it is embarrassing.

Both my sisters and their families are in town so we are going to be crazy busy and enjoying catching up and eating delicious food. And of course the kids are excited about presents. :-)
