I've realized something about my "photographic style" while looking at my holiday photos: I'm not very good at documenting my family life. When I have my friends and family around, I tend to forget I have a camera and spend my time socializing (aka running my mouth). I did get a few for Thanksgiving, though:
The obligatory turkey shot. One day I'm going to put it on a pretty platter and give it a real photo op, but I was feeding 20 people this year, and I'm not sure they would have appreciated the delay.
My stepsister came from New York to visit from from Tuesday to Saturday and brought along her dog. She's moving to Switzerland in a couple of weeks (her husband has been there since July) so here she is trying out all her new snow gear in my backyard. She's all bundled up, and I was standing there in just a sweatshirt complaining that I was hot. Maybe I should move to Switzerland.
My mom and stepdad. It is really hard to get a photo of my mom because she's so camera shy, so getting the two of them together was a triumph. Don't tell her I posted this.
DD got a new 'do:
Laurie and I hit L.L.Bean on Wednesday night. Here's a crappy snapshot of her out front with the big Bean boot.
