Christmas in September

Yesterday's post was probably pretty boring for most people.  At least those that don't really care about the behind the scenes sorts of stuff here at PardonMyReach.  So I was going to write a post last night about some of the fun weekend stuff Amber and I did, but I wanted some pictures that hadn't yet been pulled off the camera.  And I also got sidetracked looking at photos from a hike of Little Si last year and then looking up stuff on the National Geodetic Survey, and basically I never got around to writing the post.

100_1339Over the last few days, I've also been trying to catch up with uploading pictures to flickr and I'm almost done with all the 2009 ones.  Here's a picture of me stretching to get the star on the tree.  I'm sure if we had a video camera going, hilarity would have ensued and we would have been a shoe-in for the top prize on America's Funniest Home Videos.  I'll be continuing with uploads as time permits, so keep checking back.  I'll admit openly, most of them are pretty bad, but there are some that are pretty good.

Last night was also occupied with some last-minute housecleaning before my dad and sister arrive.  They are driving up from Oklahoma and we were expecting them Thursday, maybe Wednesday if they made really good time.  Based on their last known position, they are making really good time, so we are now expecting them today.  Mind you, we weren't trying to put off stuff until the last minute, but it's hard to get everything in when you are busy.

    We're all friends here Michael. It was put off to the last minute (at least on my part)

    But hey, we did the heavy lifting type stuff ahead of time so it was all good

    Enjoy your time with your family! : ) At least they KNOW what day it is... H's Uncle Joe told us he would arrive on a Friday, showed up on Thursday (surprise!) instead and didn't know what day it really was until sometime that weekend!
