Christmas Stroll Down Memory Lane

Last post was a bit wordy. Making up for it with this recap of our Christmas cards for the last 5 years!
This is Bubbles. She was our bearded dragon. She lived in a 75 gallon fish tank next to our bed and liked to stare at us. She wasn’t against wearing fun hats either. She also liked to take long walks on the quad at school. She lived to be 10 years old (pretty good for beardies).
Here we have Matilda (in the house) and Jeeves Fluffywhumps. They were ‘rescues’ we got when we lived in Syracuse. They still live with us.
This is Rita as a baby. She later ate all of those window clings. We still have her (obviously).
Our card from last year. This took about 500 shots. Almost broke the camera in the process. Incase you were wondering, you shouldn’t drop an SLR. We still have them at the moment…
***If you know me in real life stop reading!!!***
Merry Christmas Everyone!

We stepped it up a bit this year, went with the 5-shot collage card. (Got them at Walmart because they do 1-hour and well… time management is not working this year).
Starring: Alfie the Reindeer
Also Featured:
Gobbles the turkey.
The two of us (not the most glamorous folk) with Alfie and Rita Beast.
Alfie is now an internet celebrity! Well, that’s what we told him. He just continued to chew on his ‘floppy’ (what we call his fleece toy). Thanks to The Cottage Market for featuring him!

    Also, just in case you didn’t know, you’re a no-reply blogger so I couldn’t email respond to your comment… you can find a tutorial to help you fix that here. You’ll probably get lots more comments/replies to your comments from bloggers if you do that too! : )
