Christmas Day- Photo an Hour



As I told you a few days ago, I was allowed to open my DSLR (Canon Rebel T2i/D550) on the 23rd so I've been playing with it ever since!! It's actually my 21st Birthday present (my 21st isn't til March..) but I've very impatient!! Obviously it's only in Auto mode at the moment, but I have a "Canon D550 For Dummies Guide" to help me along the way!!

7am



Christmas!!

8am

Presents!! Inception and The Godfather Trilogy on DVD, a book on 20th Century Fashion, new GHDs (Yes!! Mine packed up after 4 years a few weeks ago), Canon DSLR remote, Lily Allen Panda Necklace, Camera case, New York Calendar (I'm going for my 21st in March), Canon D550 for Dummies book, Christmas day dress, and fur gilet :]]

9am




Frozen milk!! The bottle exploded when we got it inside!!

10am




Christmas breakfast!! Christmas breakfast is a Crowley tradition. We used to have it at my grandparents but my nan is too old now so we have it at my Auntie's.. I don't eat meat so there's not much I can eat, but this year I was desperate for beans on toast!! American baked beans are weird and in some kind of sweet, bacon sauce so I have to buy vegetarian ones, and I find the bread in the US really sweet too, so I was so excited to have beans on toast back home!!

11am




Think I was the only one expecting this photo!! I was looking through my cousin's wedding album while we were at breakfast :]]

12pm






Playing with my camera and remote :]] and a family picture :]]

1pm




Being home= endless cups of tea.

2pm






Christmas Dinner...





And my Christmas dinner!!

3pm




Yay, TopShop vouchers :DD

4pm




I can't get vegetarian gravy anywhere in America, so I have to get my parents to send it to me. I eat gravy with everything (I'm a Northern girl, what can I say?) but especially Christmas Dinner.

5pm




My Christmas drink of choice. It tastes like Dr. Pepper :]]


And even though I don't like it, Christmas pudding, because I know you American kids don't know what it is.

6pm




My mum's home-made Christmas cake.

7pm




This is a game we play every year. It always funny because it's a Men vs. Women game, and we have two men (my Dad and my Uncle), and then 5 women (Me, my Mum, my Nan, my Auntie and my cousin Jeni), but the men always win!! It's great fun!!

8pm




And the drawing game we played afterwards. According to my nan, this is a guitar.

Well after 8pm I stopped taking pictures so these are all I have!!
Hope you had a lovely day and got everything you wished for!!

  3. In Seattle we have two stores PCC [only in the Seattle area] and Trader Joe's [all over the country] and they are very vegetarian friendly. I think PCC is a bit better when it comes to finding vegetarian substitutions for meat, but you could probably find a store like that in Minnesota.
