I took all of zero pictures during our family visit to WV. It was much like my blogging lately--sheer laziness. I'm making it one of my New Year's resolutions to try to do better.
One of my Christmas gifts from my sister, Laura, was a new camera. I am wanting to invest in a Rebel but, until then, the old 4 megapixel needed updating. The new camera was a Black Friday purchase and a HUGE improvement over the old one. Now if I can just improve my photo-taking skills...
I DID take pictures at our day after Christmas gathering at Bryan's parents' house. Jonathan and his cousin, Aiden, do not get to spend much time together. But when they do, both of them are pretty much in heaven. Seeing those boys play together makes me so happy. Even though I am pretty sure we are not going to have more children, my heart is warmed so much by their interaction that it reminds me of the value of having a sibling.
Bryan received the obligatory socks. His faux happiness would be convincing if I didn't know him so well.
As you can see from this shot, Bryan's Dad was totally into the holiday spirit:
I hope everyone had a great Christmas! I can't believe it is over again for another year! It always goes by too quickly, particularly, it seems, when you have children.
