flattery...and christmas

last night i ordered our family pics for our christmas cards. 100 pics! this afternoon i received a call from the costco photo lab. the lady at the lab wanted to know if i had the copyright for my photos from the photographer that took them. i thought...wow are they THAT good? i told her that i was the photographer and she said, surprizingly, 'oh they just looked so professional' to which i replied, 'well thank you.' (they really don't look professional...it's nevada and they probably don't get a lot of scrapbookers photos that come through their costco) i had to laugh at the whole conversation because seriously in utah as many times as i developed pictures, and i was on a first name basis with the photo lab gal (michelle), i never once got that reaction. they just get more good pics because of all the photographers/scrapbookers.

anywho...i couldn't believe i needed 100 pics. we have loved moving around and meeting new friends and keeping in touch with them all. we don't have friends in others countries...we'll have to work on that one...but we have loved having friends all over the united states. i have a friend in england but he's married by now...and we kind of lost touch after high school. flashback. one of my most favorite things to do in december is to go to the mailbox and find christmas letters from all of you. i love seeing how much your families have grown and hearing about all the fun things you have been up to. it makes me feel like we've been along for the ride. oh i can't wait for december!

That's so funny that she thought they were pro! But they are really great. That one of you and B looking at the kids is awesome! I hope we will be on the CC list this year! :)

Love it about the pictures. Your photos are professional worthy easily. I too look forward to Christmas time because I get caught up with everyone. I think it is the only time of year where I actually check the mailbox everyday.
