So after spending waaaaay too long trying to figure out a short cut way to upload the photos from my camera to both here and Shutterfly I must again embrace the fact that I will NEVER gain geekdom! In a quick fly by I'm giving you a hint of how our Christmas went down. Gingerbread houses decorated and displayed....check. Manger properly loaded and displayed.....check. Reindeer food made and dispersed....check. Family snuggle while watching traditional holiday movie before bed....check. Table set for Santa complete with treats and welcome/thank you notes....check! Santa arrives and leaves gift sack for the Missy Mayor(Spanish for 'older' for the English readers).....check. Santa arrives and leaves gift sack for the Lil' Cowgirl....check. Girls awake at respectable hour of 5:45 AM and after a hushed conference wisely wait until 7 AM to exit bedrooms and awake parents before diving into gift sacks..... Gift sacks and stash left in heap while family rushes to ready for church....check. Mom forgets to bring camera to church...check! So the rest of the day kind of tumbled down hill for us from that point. There are some pictures taken at the dinner that I cooked at Auntie Peggy's house (because hospitals don't close on holidays and she had to work) and because Uncle Peter was ankle deep in sewer water trying to rod out Grandma's main line on Christmas day, but they would be on her camera...not mine which was still forgotten at home. I'm sure there are even better pictures of all the cousins opening their gifts at Auntarie's, where we went for the dessert part of our progressive day, but they would be on the Aunties' cameras as I never went back home to get mine! All in all we made a great pitcher of lemonade from the pile of lemons that arrived this holiday season!! Hope to get those pictures from the second half of the day posted soon.....especially since the sledding outing from today yielded some cute shots that I'm eager to post!!!!
