Before joining my parents for dinner we took family pictures in the woods (empty lot) in our neighborhood. For the first time I attempted the use of a remote control and tripod with the camera to get shots with all of us in them. Afterwards we went over to my parents house to eat a fully cooked feast waiting for us - much appreciated! And the kids are spending the night over there, so I have time to edit pictures and update the blog. I even ordered my Christmas cards! Great day.
