judging by the amount of loot under the tree, g was a very good boy this year. i spent 5 hours on christmas day assembling the black pearl and queen anne's revenge and i am not even exaggerating. i am very pleased to report that the gman has finally overcome his fear of the pirates of the carribean. he watched all four movies with me this week. i was ecstatic. i have a thing for johnny depp. i have every since my college days when i ran home from class to watch him on 21 jump street.
for the first time ever i went with a non-traditional christmas dinner. steak, mashed potatoes, baked green beans, and deviled eggs. we've started a new tradition. it was that good. many thanks to bob evans for the delicious baked potatoes that didn't dirty my kitchen. and i know you're admiring my elegant place setting. portmeirion botanic garden, oneida non silverware, my favorite buffalo wild wings glass, old hickory paring knife courtesy of elmo, and napkin courtesy of mcdonald's.
pepito wasn't really wearing the santa hat. i was just playing around with cool artsy effects on my smartphone. notice i'm smart enough to work the smartphone but too lazy to apply what i learned to my other photos here.
and i've finally found my missing mojo. i have a couple belated christmas projects up on the jbs inspiration blog as well as a peek at the january kit that i'll be sharing here next week. :)
