This Thanksgiving, whilst we had the family gathered, my sister and I thought it would be a great time to get some family pictures. We would all be fairly dressed up, most of us had combed our hair and makeup was applied. Plus, my grandmother would actually be there.
This was imperative because, as I’ve mentioned before, it is super hard to buy for her. She’s 84 now, or so, and don’t get me started on how picky she is. Now, I will admit, I am particular. I like what I like, and as such, if you ask what I want or need, I’m liable to send you a link or a picture. But my grandmother takes the cake when it comes to picky.
Which, is okay, I don’t mind picky. Like I mentioned, I am too, so I understand it.
Here is the difference. If you ask me what I want for Christmas, or my Birthday, or just because you love me, I can give you a list of half a dozen things that I’d LOVE to have! I keep a running list on my phone.
I’m not even kidding.
But, if you ask my grandmother, she has no clue what she wants. In fact, she hates that we start shopping for Christmas so early because she can’t even think what she might want before December 1st.
I’m getting off track.
She’s picky and hard to buy for.
But my sister came up with a brilliant idea.
A few years ago my sister bought a beautiful picture frame collage thing. She didn’t use it for what she wanted, so we are going to use it and fill it with pictures of her grand kids and great-grand kids.
We pulled pictures off my computer to use, but as long as everyone was at the house, and sort-of cleaned up, after dinner we grabbed her for some “family pictures”.
I was going to just use my iPhone camera.
It works fine.
But, my mom recently got a DSLR camera thing. So, we grabbed that. I was told to turn it on and press the button. So, I did. Several times.
Then I got in the picture and had mom take some shots.
It was awesome!
Here is how my favorite one turned out:
And here is how my second favorite one turned out:
Because you guessed it… the camera didn’t capture any of the pictures.
Something about the SD card or whatever.
So, after she left we discovered that none of the pictures took.
I wore makeup for no reason.
But, the food was good!
