I usually go for sticking some tinsel up my pants and saying I’ve got a tail, but this year I wanted to be as shiny as the tree and what wouldn’t a father do for their daughter?
One of the few good things that come with having split parents is celebrating Christmas twice. Although as I think if it now, it’s more sad than fun actually. Like a constant reminder that you’ll never have a big, loving family to sit in front of the fireplace and sing carols with. But making myself sad wasn’t the point of writing this post, therefore I should stop here.
Typically, I took a picture of the tree before we decorated it, but forgot to take one after. I’ve got a thing for B&W Christmas photography. It tones the tackiness down a little.
Here’s my brother, showing off his (non alcoholic, of course) beer. Proud midget.
We had a not very traditional dinner and what’s a decorated tree without a cheesy family portrait beside it?
I need to go now for my house is getting filled by relatives and people I had no idea I’m related to, but that’s ok. It’s Christmas. They’d better not touch my cake, though.
- Me and Daddy
For some time now, Christmas had a rough start for me. Last year I got in a huge fight with dad while we were doing the tree, whereas this year has been no different: on the 22nd, when I was at my dad’s place doing the tree, my mom started ~cleaning~ my room, aka throwing away everything she thought of as useless. Apparently, all the pamphlets I collected during my trips to Japan were labelled as useless and so did the amplifying wire the bassist from Guild gave me when I was to their live
But it ended up as a beautiful Christmas. I wasn’t mad on my mom in the first place, I was just really sad I lost all those precious items.
Unfortunately my Canon’s lens was broken so I only managed to take photos of half of my Christmas, as the title says, at my dad’s place (with his camera). I took a ton of photos but these are the only ones he emailed me
Presents wise, this year has been amazing. I got new lens for my Canon baby, a Pentax film camera (shot 7 pictures already :3), 2 beautiful necklaces and an Iphone 4.
I still have no CF card for my Canon so I had to take pictures of my presents with my iphone, therefore there are no shots of the black baby.
And, as every Christmas goes, there has to be a derpy tree decoration photo, right? : D
Did you enjoy your Christmas? What about your presents? Hope you had a lovely time!
