Christmas Lights Walk-thru

Yes, it is officially mid-January and I am still posting about Christmas-y stuff. Blogger and its' photo uploader HATE me this past month, and it's caused a bit-o-delay in the blogging.

Whew. Glad I got that out of the way.

A few days before Christmas, my parents popped down for a quick overnight visit while they were visiting my GG a couple of hours away. (Oh, by the way, my 93 year old grandmother went to a New Year's Eve party and I didn't. She actually was helping with the food and planning, so I guess technically she co-hosted a New Year's Eve party. I have never once been to a New Year's Eve party. Perhaps I'll start hosting them when I'm 93.)

Where was I? Parents. Here. A couple of days before Christmas. For the past few years, a nearby town has had this cool Christmas light display that you can walk around in, so we went to check that out with the kiddos. It wasn't quite as good this year as it has been in the past, but I still managed to take a few bad pictures of my kids. Someday I will learn how to actually use my camera.

I took this picture of the girls with Brandon last year:


Such sweet baby girls with their chubby cheeks and their short hair.

And this is how the picture turned out this year:

Story of our life. And yes, two-year and nine-month old Harper is still in a diaper. Idontwanttotalkaboutit. Potty training? It could be going better.

We may have broken a rule or two by straying off the sidewalk, but at this point our children fully expect to stick their face right into the light display.

I'm just glad Aidan didn't find someone else's clothes to wear this year.

And with that, on this brisk January 15 day, I am officially DONE posting about Christmas 2011. Maybe sometime in February I'll celebrate New Year's.
