    Default Christmas Flashback Friday and Snapshot a Day (12/27): SHARE!

    OK, if you don't have pictures from this week, you have no right to call yourself a photographer. Who's going to share their Christmas pics?

    No snapshot for today yet, but here are my Christmas pics.

    DH got me a 40mm pancake lens for Christmas (and a remote trigger, and a Manfrotto tripod!), and from this point on the pics are taken with that lens.

    Loved this, Nora set up air hockey with her new stuffy (also named Nora, on the tag it came with!):

    The kids got VTech cameras with games on them and the games are a bit addictive. After the new year we will have to put a time limit on game time every day!!!

    We have more from our family gathering, but most aren't that good. We were hosting and I was sick and busy, didn't have time for many good snaps.

    Who's next?

    Here's my snap for today. Micah got an Angry Birds Hot Wheels track, and I took some high-speed continuous shots to try to get one of the cars (not the Angry Bird car unfortunately!) sending the pigs flying. Hard to tell here, but there are actually two pigs in the air in this shot, the gray board (sticker on other side with pig pic) and the smaller one over Micah's face.

    I've just been burnt out lately, have a ton of picture on my camera just need to get to filtering through them.

    Great Christmas shots. I'll have to look into the Angry Birds car track for Natalie's Birthday, she LOVES cars and Angry Birds.

    Tracy - Christmas looks like a WORLD of fun at your house! Looks like you are already rocking that new 40mm lens! Our family loves to play Jenga as well. In fact, Logan got a new version of it (Jenga Tetris, or something like that) for Christmas this year. I haven't played yet, but he and Carlos seem to be enjoying it quite a lot.


    I'm not going to go back and hit all of the snap-a-day threads from late December, but I thought I'd put a few here from our Christmas break.

    here are my pups grabbing a nap together:


    Logan took this one of Carlos and I:


    this is Logan reading a Christmas story to us on Christmas Eve:

    BTW ... this is ONE FUN story ... by Lemony Snicket, the author of the "Series of Unfortunate Events" stories; this one is called Lump of Coal I highly recommend it!

    the dogs had a blast as we opened gifts:


    Logan in his "Zombie snuggie" - he now sleeps in this thing every night


    my first snap w/ the D7100 - no flash, inside AT NIGHT


    Logan and his 3 year old cousin:


    15 month old nephew:


    a plate of Paleo goodies!

    I actually managed to NOT GAIN any weight this Christmas

    my mom and her collection of grandsons


    all 3 boys had SUCH a blast w/ these muppets we found:


    my mom and I:

    the big black "belt" is really a brace for her back, but we told her it made her look like Mrs. Claus

    I know ... that's a lot of photos! And I have SO many more. I guess I will just have to find a way to stay on top of the daily threads to keep this from happening.

    TFL!

    Those are great shots, GiGi! Looks like you had a wonderful Christmas. Your family always strikes me as so warm and loving. Just love the pic of your mom with the grandsons, and the zombie! And that picture of you and Carlos is so lovely.

    AWWWW, thanks Tracy! We're a pretty tight knit bunch. And I *love* the pic of Carlos and I that Logan took. That was just before we left for the Christmas Eve service. Logan has a pretty good eye for composition and is learning more and more about using the manual settings (right now he generally uses ap-priority or shutter priority). I think he's going to enjoy playing around w/ my D80 once I get the hang of the D7100.
