Thursday, December 13, 2007 the park and other stuffs

We went for a lil photo shoot on the Sunday that just passed....but it was too freakin cold to hang out in the park for long! Here's some funny shots we got......and the tattoo, which I need pics of for a project I'm working on...this is the one I got on my 18th birthday: it's a tribal rose, I designed it myself...pretty simple. =) camera batteries died last night, plus the tree won't look great in the dark lighting anyways with all the apartment windows across the street blaring, so I'll try to get some pics of the twig-tree soon! In lieu, a Christmas survey that I read on Silje's blog:

1. Wrapping paper or gift bags? I love wrapping paper...=)
2. Real tree or Artificial? I'm all for real trees..but we have a lil fake one this year
3. When do you put up the tree? a few days ago...=)
4. When do you take the tree down? They're so cutethis year I want to leave them up always!

20. Do you have an Angel on top of the tree or a star? I like stars...but there's a skull on top of my tree this year...=)
21. Open the presents Christmas Eve or morning? We always got pj's on Christmas eve, and open all the presents on Christmas morning!
22. Most annoying thing about this time of year? Wearing canvas shoes in the snow sucks. Malls in general. Working retail.

What a fun picture of Z. That is really nice lighting the second photo. You're cute! I love the tattoo picture too.
Have fun making lots of presents. I've nearly finished wrapping the ones I've got so far. Yay!

Its too bad there aren't many apartments decorated around your neighborhood. Maybe when you get home to Calgary???
