To all my wonderful online friends and readers …

Just to cover those of you that are not on FB (or my FB friend yet)
… here is our Bertelson Annual Photo 2010 edition 🙂

If you are my FB friend, you can see the photo (and comment 🙂 HERE

Everyone can see it here (and larger)

All 205 photos were taken by Maddie’s (White #6) friend Reid Garnett – he has been her friend since they

were 3 years old in pre-school. Very talented phtotographer … his flickr stream is HERE

After picking the finalist/winner photo I created a stop-motion video all 205 photos in sequence, with some

awesome, very appropriate music underneath …. that you can see (and comment 😉 here

Hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas/Holiday – full of smiles, laughter, relaxation, suprises (good ones!)

…. and here’s to an awesome rockin’ 2011

This will be a mishmash of bullet point, pics and videos I think …

Where were we before … Oh yes, this year the infamous Bertelson Bulletin 2008 Christmas edition, along with annual family photo will NOT be reaching you before Christmas!!

Fear not though, it WILL be reaching you (especially anyone who sends US a newsletter and or family photo – hint hint – I love getting them, but not just a card with no news or photo, I always feel that such a waste of a stamp these days!!) ….

…it will reach you sometime in the New Year – sort of a welcome to 2009 nugget/suprise for you once you’re back in the doldrums because the holiday season is all over and the bills that made it happen are starting to roll in!!!

The reason behind this is because we (all 6 of us) are going on a Christmas Cruise (east carribean) with my MIL Joanie, and SHE’S footing the whole bill – yeah baby!! We leave on Dec 20th and return Dec 28th ….

We will be taking our family photo sometime while on this cruise, the exact location and or background to the photo will remain a secret to further build your anticipation… although as the children get older, they are less receptive to my crazy wacky ideas of how to do the photo!

Sadly, and I know some of you are SO sad at this (snort) Twix and Twizzler will not be featured in the family photo since they cannot come on the cruise with us.

Matt – recent photo – was going surfing (the water is chilly, well for us Floridians it is!)

My Son & I

Was taking a bunch of photos of Matt (to showcase his almost 70 lbs lost in the last 8 months)

What amused me about this photo, so I zoomed in was the girls chores pasted on the door behind him!!! His head is blocking Maddie’s (12) list, don’t worry she doesn’t get out of chores! Mel is 17, Kenzie is 11

The Chores are always there!

 

What else ? – Done 50% of the shopping, we will be doing our Christmas on Dec 19th before we get on the cruise, so sense lugging all those presents onto the ship (well maybe not ALL those, but the few there will be, trying to not go overboard this year)

Oh here’s a Hairy Happy Greeting from Twix!!

Happy Holiday - BIG grin

She’s The POSTER child, well I mean dog for ‘A Norwich Terrier that needs stripping” – LOL

Her hair is SO long and shaggy, I stripped (grooming term – google it!!) Twizzler recently (3 hr job!) but neither hubby or I have gotten around to doing Twix completely – you can’t see it but her rear end is done, so she looks even weirder from the side.

She is SO cute – we love her
