1st Photo-A-Day of 2009 - Happy New Year!
Photo-A-Day #1364

A little while after the clock struck midnight I took out the XShot and took the first Photo-A-Day of 2009. A look at how I’d like to spend 2009, surrounded by family and friends having fun.

We had a very nice New Year’s party and thank everyone who braved the snow and ice to come to the house and celebrate with us. Allison made a delicious White Chicken Chili or White Chili with Chicken, I can never remember but I know it is really good. I went out and got a bunch of extras like mozzarella sticks, pizza bites, mini tacos and potato skins. We had plenty of food and the house had plenty of people. My parents, my sister Tara and my Brother-In-Law Erik, Meghan and Russ, Mike, Neil and Andrea. We even made it to midnight tonight, and so did Neil and Andrea. Everyone else went home early. We were even able to crack the champagne that we bought for last year’s New Year’s Eve.

During the night we talked, watched the ball drop and played some Wii games like Mario Kart and Guitar Hero. It was fun and we were glad that we charged the batteries earlier that day.

Today was a nice one with church in the morning followed by some lazing around. I read some of Brisingr and took a nice long nap. It was a nice day that got even nicer with a delicious meal with Mom and Dad. They made a Prime Rib Roast that was so good. Tara and Erik had dinner with us too and Eva loved all the attention, of course. Eva’s been expanding her vocabulary every day and she picks up and repeats words so fast. Fast enough that she caught us say “Crap” and immediately tested that word out. Great. Welcome to 2009.

    A belated Happy New Year, I must get my hands on one of those Xshot they certainly make the photo look better than holding the camera just in your hand.

    Happy New Year!

    I’ve been trying to find out what type of camera you use. Is it on your blog somewhere?

  8. Drew says:


    I use three cameras. I have a Nikon D80, Canon SD800is and a Sanyo EC1. The photo above was the canon.

    Happy New Year!
