I'm Dreaming of a White Trash Christmas

Have a White Trash Christmas

So this was the photograph I was thisclose to using last year for the obligatory Christmas card photo of all four of us. And my title would have made a catchy greeting, right?

But I ended up using a much more normal looking picture with NO BOOZE in the shot. Because what if I got super-organized and actually sent one of these puppies to someone from my husband's law firm? I know, I know. Highly unlikely. Still, it could have happened.

But I thought for my first Flickr photo use (thanks and a tip of the hat to my pal Badger for leading the way) I would use the first runner up to the official Christmas Card Picture, 2004. You know--the one that had a way better personality; it's just that the winner was prettier.

So anyway, it's me, my huzbin, and our two demon spawn in the back of my sister's camper. We're on the way to Rye Beach in sunny New Hampshire.

Oh, and check it out and you'll see that I wasn't exaggerating when I said I'm "carrying a lot on my balcony," as they say in France. (Actually, in France they say it in French, but I can't remember how. So sue me; I'm American and fairly aged, OK?)

p.s. I'm the one in the white shirt.


  1. I wouldn't say you look DEFORMED, or anything.


  2. HA!

    That's only because the shirt lacks the crucially important horizontal stripes.


  3. Now now, your nose isn't THAT big. Oh wait, you weren't talking about...? Whoops. Is my face red!
