christmas day pics

These are all very small thumbnails. If you want to see any detail, just click on the picture. You know the drill.

Here's the cause of all the ruckus. Santa, trying to look innocent by being asleep. The following pictures detail the damage he did to my brother's living room...

This is the tree where Santa lay down the presents that he littered the room with. Isn't it a pretty tree? It's real and smelled so nice!

These are my three nephews. The two oldest are a junior and senior in high school whereas the youngest has a long, long way to go. 8 years left until college.

The two older boys and someone's butt. You can also see that the gift wrap debris was reaching epic proportions. At this point dogs were easily becoming lost and soon smaller children would be at risk!
My sister-in-law and her middle child. It's so nice when they like to hug! BTW, I'm not a hugger and I get teased about it a lot!

In this one you get three generations with my Mom joining the picture. I might post a few more pictures later in the week. None of the ones relating to gift opening have a different perspective unfortunately. I was hemmed in on the couch by people, furniture, and pets and wasn't able to move about the room as I'd have liked. Besides, I was unwrapping my presents too! There are priorities, y'know?

As a result though, neither my Dad, Brother, Renée or I are in any of these pictures. We were all on the couch and easy chair on the other side of the room. Sorry!

Merry Christmas Utenzi! Thanks for visiting my blog. Hope you drop by again sometime. Love that you have your Xmas pics up already. I haven'thad the chance since I flew back. Will need to do that soon... I'm back here through Michele's! :-)

Perspective was a problem with my pictures too... it was difficult. Of course, few of mine actually worked as I'm photographically challenged, but I gave it a shot. I've got a good picture of one of the kid's knees, some blurry ones of my youngest brother and I think one is supposed to be a dog. I tried to get others to take the pictures!

Thanks for sharing the pictures, Dave. The boys have all grown so much since I last saw a picture.

Teresa, your blog doesn't have an update since the early part of December. Post those pictures! Get your butt in gear.

Chrixean, I'll definitely do so. I certainly want to see your Xmas and vacation pictures.

That looks like my house....

Love the pictures. I hope Santa was good to you!

Every year I say I am going to take more pictures at the holidays or more pictures period and I never do.:(
Nice pictures, Utenzi....It's amazing how the Wrappings can pile up so very quickly...when you see it like this it makes you wonder why we go to so much trouble to wrap presents when the paper is destroyed in 15 seconds or less! (lol)

Here from Michele this A.M.!

Looks like y'all had fun! that's for sure! Glad it was a good day!

That's a lot of presents. We got a car shortly before Christmas, so naturally we weren't too generous to ourselves on Christmas day. And I already fear the day the credit card bill arrives. Brrrr.

But we got ourselves a cute little Christmas tree. So I got into Christmas spirit after all.

Came here from Michele.

Uh... I don't know how to post them, Dave. I suppose I have to get them out of the camera first...

And I did do two posts since early December. I deleted one right off as I didn't like the way it turned out and intended to fix it (but never got around to it). The other was up until this past Monday; I deleted it by request. You've been too busy to check on me, I guess. :-)

Great photos! I'm glad you have your priorities staight! Unwrapping gifts always comes before posing for photograph! Glad you had a wonderful Christmas with your family.

Awww... family photos! I love them - and I completely know that epic proportions of wrapping paper taking over the living room, hallway, kitchen.... :)
Tara said…
Great pics. Looks like Santa was nice!

B/c of my OCD, I have to go around throwing away all of the wrapping paper as my family is opening their gifts, so ours never stacks up like that. I know I have serious issues.
