Say Cheese!

We got a dslr camera for Christmas this year and I LOVE IT!!! I haven't hardly put it down. The world of dslr photography is amazingly complex so I am playing around with the camera as much as I can and trying to learn as quickly as possible. I'm not very patient when it comes to a few things. Like, I want awesome pictures NOW! So anyway, here are a few shots I've taken the past few days. (i had over 200 pics and we've only owned the thing since Friday) :)

We had our first ever Ugly Christmas Sweater party to celebrate Christmas with my dad's side of the family. It was lots of fun!!! Here are a few pics from the night.

Matt Kettle (dressed as Mayor of the North Pole) and Mit Winter (dressed as, whoknowswhat) were by far the best dressed there.

Jenni (with the bean) and Me. Don't worrry, we'll knock em dead next year since we'll have all year to plan!
Kurt and Lee sported some of the ugly sweaters that I managed to sneak out of my dad's closet. He bought the one Lee is wearing in 1983! Enough said.

Susan and Mit, the happy hosts!

Boo decorating cookies

A1 and A2 wearing vintage birthday hats that my grandma made for her kids' birthdays! Yes, we are aware that they look like dunce hats. :) Based on their faces, they are too.

Wow! Your pictures are great Laura! It really makes me think I need a new camera...although I think you have more talent behind the camera than I do! Love seeing all the pics of your beautiful family!! Have a Merry Christmas!
