Christmas Dinner

We had Christmas Dinner over at our place last night.  It was a good time.  You can check out some of the other random pictures in the events section.  Yow-Yow got a new acoustic, electric bass guitar, and Travis split his pants.  Needless to say we had way more food than we knew what to do with: 7kg full leg of ham, mashed potatoes, salad, beet & green been salad, coleslaw, at least 3 types of desserts, and lots of alcohol.  It was a good time had by all.

I’ve added a new feature, and this is something that I’ve been wanting for awhile.  You may have noticed up in the top, there is a new cart menu item.  This will only be used for select pictures (and I am working on getting a few of the old ones setup with it), but this is the first official picture that can be purchased.  I’ve tested it out a bit, but I’m sure there may be a few glitches along the way.  There are also a few updates I’ll be ironing out along the way, so there may be a few changes.  Thanks!

Lemon

Well, it has officially been one year in Australia as of tomorrow.  Looking back, it has been an interesting year.  Not having snow, or any day even remotely close to snowing was definitely a plus.  However, it is hard being this far away from family.

I’ll hoping to have a post here shortly about the breakdown of things here in Australia so far.  However, in the meantime, here’s a picture of a (of MANY) lemon on the tree in our backyard.  Today was a gorgeous and clear day, and I’ve been wanting to get the combo of green, yellow, and blue for awhile now.  Enjoy.

 

With the launch of the new family food blog, I’m hoping there will be additional food shots moving forward.  I really like the colors and clarity of this photograph.  Plus it’s been awhile since I’ve actually used my DSLR (and I love me some food!).

Speaking of DSLR, man, the D800 is sounding like a sexy beast.  However, I think I need to replace my normal kit zoom lens as it has a lot of dust inside.  It’s quite frustrating.  Plus, having something at f2.8 would be nice, but I’d also love to get my hands on some wide-angle stuff.

Not a whole lot else going on right now.  Our stuff has arrived into port in Melbourne today, but we won’t see it for awhile.  We’re hoping to see it before Christmas.  As of right now, that would be the best Christmas ever: opening all the presents of stuff we’ve already bought!  Yay!
