The Christmas after Christmas with a guest

Brandi here. I hope you're all recovering from the holiday extravagance. My wonderful older brother Mathew is our guest today he won Jay'me's Wordless Wednesday. Matt has a gift for words so I'll let him say it all.

Not two steps in the front door and Brandi is on my case about taking a picture. Apparently, I'm your guest photographer for the day. This is your punishment for not being good boys and girls all year.

I'll admit to a touch of panic when The Sister reminded me of my duties.

I said duties. I'll give you a moment.

Moving on. Panic subsided when I saw Scott XII's picture and reminded myself to keep it simple, we're not going for Ansel Adams quality. So the following is an on the spot and off the hip rendition of a nativity scene. Look at the shot and declare my damnation if you choose. Or just make the connection. Mother and father looking in adoration at their baby boy with a sheep and some fancy glass in the background.

My best to you all at the end of 2010. Be happy. Be lucky. Love one another.

Tune in tomorrow where I'll have the winner of this weeks Wordless Wednesday. This is the last night to get your name in the hat.


  1. Matt-amazing composition in this photo. It has to be the best I have seen on this blog-no questions asked. Very original idea as I have never seen a nativity photo during this time of the year.

  2. I have hung around churches my entire life... and I have a rather nice collection of Nativity Sets. I gotta say... that is the biggest baby Jesus I have ever seen!!!!!


  3. Dear 6'4" gigantic baby Jesus, layin' there in your manger, watchin' you're Little Einstein videos... The smirk on Justin's face makes the whole thing. Looks like he could burst at any moment.
