While we all know I could backdate these puppies, let’s just be honest. It’s time to do a MASS PROCRASTINATOR STYLE CATCH-UP on the ol’ December Photo Challenge.
I’ve been great about taking the actual pictures, yes, but not doing the postings. Which was the point, yes? Go figure. So here goes.
Pay attention to captions, folks. That’s where the gold is.
21 photos of Christmas:
DPC #7 – celebrating all things clangable, bangable, and worth sticking one’s tongue out for.
DPC #8 – Ok, ok, it was more like a few hours in the life. But MAN, oh man. Those few hours . . . . . redefines holiday chaos.
DPC #9 – Have you SEEN a happier face? And we don’t even have cable! (A more than lovely gift from my supportive father-in-law.)
DPC #10 – What can I say? My boy looks good in pink.
DPC #11.1 & #11.2 – Our fab 60s Christmas card! Thanks to the @j9pers for the photo & effects (including tree!).
DPC #13 – The Project: that which I almost killed myself over to prepare for Jude’s maternal great-grandmother. Let me tell you kids something – long distance group projects are NOT for the faint of heart. Nor for the light on sleep.
DPC #14 – What is it about this time of year that makes me go into a baking/crafty/homemade frenzy?! Betty Crocker, and all my southernness, is made proud.
DPC #15 – Impromptu Party fixes ensuing chaos and makes us appear . . . normal. (Ha!)
DPC #16 – Complete with presents!
DPC #17 – My two favorite men. 🙂
DPC #18 – . . . over the couch with care.
DPC #19 – Our e-trade baby.
DPC #20 – So it snowed. That was just fine. Preparing FOR the snow on the other hand elicited a few, uh . . comments from our peanut gallery.
DPC #21 – ManhattanSpeak & I went a freezing, er, posting flyers for Inwood Shines Bright and found it all! Sparkling lights, a carousel, a nativity scene, frosty the snowman family cottage – and my favorite! Light Up Palm Trees. Awesome.
DPC #22 – And thus we try again. Yep. He loves it.
DPC #23 – Whew! A wardrobe for cold weather is approved by his highness!
DPC #24 – When a toddler gets hold of the surprise gifts from Mrs.Claus on Christmas Eve – watch out!
DPC #25 – Not sure just one photo can truly capture the joy this child experienced opening his drumset. At Long Last! The woman will let me bang on stuff!!
DPC #26 – Festivities continue Day 2 as we open & skype on the big screen. Grandmommy’s bigger than real life!!
DPC #27 – Crazy cool Christmas gift from Nini proves a full success! The Kelty Kid Carrier – no struggling, no crying, all good. Even my back was happy!
And all caught up!! Whew!
