Christmas Pics

Today was the day I dragged Ron out to find a good location for our annual Christmas picture. First I buttered him up with a really good breakfast at Cracker Barrel (you really didn't think I was going to cook it, did you?) Although he's always very cooperative, a full tummy doesn't hurt.

We found a spot that was set up for Santa who was not there yet. Unfortunately there was nobody around to take the picture. Ron tried - humm, let's move on.

We found this tree outside of the movie theater and caught somebody who was going in. I liked this picture, but Ron kind of looks like he has no teeth.

Next we went into Penneys and found a willing saleslady. Ron looks great, but what the heck am I doing? (If you can't laugh at yourself, who can you laugh at?)

At Sam's Club we asked the guy checking receipts at the door. Unfortunately, this is really blurry. Never ask somebody who's busy.

Then we headed over to Dillards which has the nicest Christmas tree department. We arrived right after they opened and there wasn't anybody around. Once again we were back to self portraits. This one really made me laugh. Too close?

Finally a nice saleslady arrived to help us. This was my favorite of the lot, even though Ron has tinsel growing out of his head.

Ron and I wish all of you the very best holiday season and a shiny New Year.

(BTW, we're in Yuma now - more on that later.)


  1. Wonderful, wonderful!!! I liked all the "outtakes" as well as the final best shot. Merry Christmas!

  2. What a great collection of Christmas photos!! And yes, Ron has tinsel coming out of his head, but you have a silver pinecone coming out of your head. :-)

    Merry Christmas to you too!!

  3. Ron is such a trooper, lol. You two did good!

    Merry Christmas!

  4. Ron you have to learn to run. When she says Cracker barrel you say Ho Ho Ho then run fast.

  5. What fun! I admire your persistence.
