Scenes from a southern Christmas

I haven't done a photo post in awhile and since I have a ton of stuff to do, what better way to procrastinate than upload a bunch of pictures and write about them? Giddyup!

That was the moon the other night. If I had a better camera, the picture would show the skeletal branches of the hickory tree in our front yard that the moon was peeking through and the creepy slivery clouds scudding by. It felt cold enough to snow and looked like it should snow, but no.

Our annual game of Please Wear The Antlers For One Fucking Second So I Can Take A Picture.

The massive tree in the middle of the Village where we went shopping yesterday. It's no Rockefeller Center, but it's not too shabby.

He looks pissed. He wasn't. I just asked if he had fun shopping with me yesterday and he said "It was the least pain-in-the-ass and most fun Christmas shopping I've ever done."

I TOLD you I had a thing for lamp posts! And ones decorated for Christmas? Be still my heart! One day I hope to own my own.

I'm about to turn all this into a pie. My cousin just freaked out and scolded me for using storebought crusts and I told her to suck it. I'm under enough pressure as it is to make a decent filling - I'm going to attempt my first crust as well? I don't think so.

Photobucket
Oral fixation tools for quitting the damn cigarettes. Brian suggested one more oral tool I could use anytime I wanted.

SOME people ENJOY wearing antlers, you stupid animal!

This one is similar to the one I used in our Christmas cards this year except a miracle happened and in the good picture, the dog was actually looking at the camera with his head tilted all cute. Which was because of the beeper on the camera's self timer. Once the excitement of the beeping wore off, the rest of the pictures looked like this.

One last side note: Ten years ago tonight the dude in that picture above asked me to marry him. I said yes. We had no idea what we were getting ourselves into that night, but here we are ten years later, still hanging out together and making each other laugh every day. I think it was a good decision.

If I don't talk with you between now and tomorrow, I hope everybody has an amazing Christmas with tons of love, laughter, food and fun.

Oh my GOD, I have such a thing for lamp posts too! There's one outside the window closest to my desk, and I spend so long staring at it that I don't get anything done. And these past few days, with snow lightly falling around the warm orange glow? I was a goner!

I've taken lots of pictures of lamp posts, myself. You're more than welcome to snag them any time you like. ;)

As for the antlers...I put devil horns on Jasper for Halloween picture ONCE and he gave me a look that said "I can kill you in your sleep, you know?"

I never did it again.

DL - If I were to see snow falling around a lamp post right now I think I would die of utter joy.

HJ - I think the dogs know we're sort of having a laugh at their expense and they're having none of it. Or, they just don't like shit on their heads.
