The Christmas Update

Hey guys!

Super long time, no posts!

    So, quick update, I've been writing my book series, The Watchmen Files for the last I don't even know how long. Right now, I just finished chapter ten and am working on chapter eleven.

   But, enough of that. Back to the update.

   Christmas! I hope you all had a good one. I sure did! Let's do a recap...

Oh, and a quick note: Willow and I shared the expense and bought a Cannon camera. So a bunch of these pictures are taken from the new camera.

This is our tree! And the gifts, of course.

And here are a couple of things I got...

This is a pen that looks like a sword (Bilbo's sword) from The Hobbit called Sting, and a Bilbo bookmark.

Sorry about the fuzzy picture, but this is a T.A.R.D.I.S. necklace (it's a Doctor Who thing) from a store called Hot Topic.

The Tenth Doctor's Sonic Screwdriver. I just love this one :)

Oh, I will :)

And Ammelia (she's a also on Blogger and writes on our (Willow shares it with me) blog The Call) made these gloves for me (minus the flower). They're so warm and fuzzy :)

And The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug Chronicles: Art & Design book (hardcover)! Not as good as the Unexpected Journey art book, but still good :)

And another Hobbit gift, Thorin's key (the key to Erebor) necklace. I wear it proudly!

One of my favorite things about Christmas is going to Grandma's Christmas Eve and opening some presents there (oh, and did I mention the awesomely delicious food?). This is her (perfectly color coordinated) tree. She also has a very tidy house.

This is an ornament on her tree. It says God Jul, which, in Danish, means Merry Christmas.

Grandma has a good friend who is an awesome painter, and she does Christmas ornaments for her. This is one of them. Grandma really likes humming birds :)

She painted this one too...

... and these four are too (this is now our tree, btw)...

 Back to Grandma's white tree again


Merry Christmas in Danish (again).

I've had this elephant ornament for quite a long time, since I was a little kid. It has survived one or two tree fallings.

And so, these are some of the photography shots I got this Christmas...

 My dad works with ships (blueprint designing, etc.) so this is his ornament

 Nice shots of the Christmas lights on our mantel over the fireplace

These are my Grandma's.

Quick note about our Pinterest, we have a few new boards, if you'd like to check them out. One about music/dancing called Let Us Dance to the MusicAllons-y! (Doctor Who), ~The Desolation of Smaug~, Of Elves, and a Modern Story Characters board.

Well, I'd say that that's all I have to say... but please, don't send these pictures around the internet. No stealing or pinning, please :)

A Merry Christmas to all, and a happy, happy, happy New Year!



Remember the true meaning :)
