Since it was my 13th wedding anniversary this week I figured I would do a Throw Back Thursday pic from 2000. This was our first attempt at a "family" Holiday Card. We thought it would be a great idea to throw on some sweaters. Set up the camera. Turn on our gas fireplace. Grab our children (aka cats) and take a beautiful pictures. We took the first few and it wasn't as fun as I thought. The cats would not cooperate. And it wasn't looking like I wanted. Do you see that roaring fireplace in the background??????

So we then ALLEGEDLY got the bright idea that it would be so much more fun and the picture would look so much better if we smoked a bit. Again, just didn't turn out the way I had pictured it………..
