Silhouette Tree (12.7.13)

I took a few pictures in front of the tree yesterday.  Google turned one into a gif and made the tree sparkle. Luckily I was able to download it and crop it so you didn't see all the boxes on the ground around the tree.
I used photoshop to darken the background so the lamp isn't so prominent in the background.  I took quite a few pictures and think the one where you can see tree on both sides of me is my favorite. It was hard to do that. I kind of jammed myself into the tree so that depth didn't make it even worse. Here's a time I miss my old bigger tree.
Here's another one I liked since you can't see any tree behind me.   If I was mailing Christmas cards this year, maybe I'd have a picture like this included.  Maybe I should just email it to people.  Well maybe I'll do a second photoshoot from a different angle to compare. Santa is facing a different way after all. I just did these quick.   These kind of want to make me go somewhere with a huge tree to get some cool pictures.

  2. BTW: You are Almost as huge as I was with your hubby, but as I said in the cocoa butter message I sent you right after you told us the good news, he was 3 WEEKS late!

    1. My family has babies early and has them close to 9 lbs without them being late. We shall see! Sometimes family history is the opposite and maybe I actually have a small baby in this belly.

  3. I love these pictures!! Google made a collage of my Christmas tree pictures sparkle, and I had to share them with Tanner because I loved it so much.

    PS: I think you look perfect for how far along you are!

    1. Google only made 1 of my pics sparkle. The very first 1 I took. I took maybe 20. Too bad the first one I took showed boxes. Luckily I was able to figure out how to crop it and still have it be a gif. I can't edit the gifs that google makes. Sometimes I wish I could figure it out because they might make an animated gif with 8 pics but one of them is dumb in there so I don't want to share it.

    2. I wish they just let us choose which pictures we wanted to be a gif or have certain effects like the sparkle. It would be less of a fun surprise, though.

  4. It being a fun surprise isn't so much of a fun surprise with me. Every day that I take my daily pic, I get an animated gif. Sometimes I get 2 or 3 if I move locations for the pic. So I just know I'm getting those at least.

    1. You take more pics than I do, though. To me it's still a surprise each time.

    2. I do take a lot. Also my pictures from my iphone never back up even though the settings say they should so the iphone ones never get added features to them.
