Hey guys, I'm extending the Christmas photo assignment by a week, since it's already Tuesday, there were NO submissions (c'mon Luke and Tricia, I KNOW you have some to send in!), and all my Christmas pictures were taken on my bro's fancy camera, and since they are in Raw mode, I can't put them on my computer without him converting them to .jpg's for me. I'm very excited to see my pictures on my computer, since I'm in LOVE with a 50mm lens. I might name him Fabio. I knew I never should have borrowed that camera. Sorry Nate.
Did you watch the season premier of The Bachelor last night? I don't think I've watched since the Ryan and Trista season, but that commercial they played with the girl sobbing, and absolutely no dialogue was stinkin genius marketing, in my opinion. That was some funny stuff. Nothin like a little reality trash TV! Plus, American Idol starts in a few weeks! Squeee! Although it's not the same without Paula and Simon, and I didn't really get into the X Factor either.
I went back to work today after a vacation of 10 days for the holidays. I should probably refrain from commenting too much, but I'll just say that my time spent at home was much preferred to the time I spend at work.
The kids got a Kindle Fire for Christmas from Grandma and Grandpa H. I highly recommend it. I'm sure we haven't even gotten a taste for it yet, and they love it! Tons of free stuff you can get for it. Very fun.
Lastly, if you feel so inclined, head on over to:
and nominate your favorite blog(s) that you read. I'm not swaying you toward voting for any specific blog. No, of course I'd never do that. Ever.
P.S. The pictures of my finished Christmas crafts are on the fancy schmancy camera too, so I'll post about those soon too!
