Fun with our Canon Rebel SLR timer mode!

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas in the Watkins’ home. We’re so excited to be spending our first Christmas together as husband and wife (and dog!). It’s The Hubby’s favorite time of year, and it would be mine too if it weren’t so darn cold outside. But anyway, I’ve had a very rough few weeks and to de-stress we decided it was about time we dusted off the Christmas decorations and get into the spirit of things. Last week Gibran surprised me and bought the tree all on his own. Considering I think picking the perfect tree is an art and usually more my masterpiece, I was very impressed with the selection he brought home. He even put lights on before I got there so we could really get the holiday party started. After a few days of digging for ornaments and shopping for a few new things, tonight we finally finished decorating the place. Here’s a peek at our holiday flavor. My favorite part of the night was us trying to take a family photo in front of the tree using our SLR camera’s timer setting. As you can see, Karma was too busy trying to eat my Santa hat and the gift ribbon to actually smile for the pictured! LOL! I hope you’re feeling the spirit, like we are. Tomorrow night we’re going to try to build our first gingerbread house. (Stay tuned for details!)
