Can't Upload Pictures??


So a little while ago I had that problem when I went to upload pictures it would tell me that my picasca web album was full! So I was just going to buy more space on there or upload them through a different program. But then my dear sweet husband did some research and came up with a solution!! So you wanna know what it is? :)


Picasa Web Albums offers 1 GB of free storage for photos and videos. However, files under certain size limits don't count towards this free storage limit. This applies to uploads for other Google product that store photos and videos in Picasa Web Albums, including Blogger, Google+ and Google Maps.

While Picasa Web Albums offers 1GB of free storage for photos and videos, files under certain size limits won't count towards this free storage limit. If you're a Google+ user, photos up to 2048 x 2048 pixels won't eat up your storage space. For non-Google+ users, the photo size limit is smaller: 800 x 800 pixels

I was so happy to find this out cause I started uploading them through photobucket and that took a lot longer. So if you just don't upload your pictures bigger then  2048 x 2048 and it won't count on your free storage!

So there you go :)

Sledding

 Saturday we got a text from our friends wondering if we wanted to go sledding. We checked the temperature outside, -29C (-20F) windchill eh we are Canadians we can handle it! :) So we bundled up and headed out. We couldn't decide if it was worth the climb all the way up for a few mins of joy for the ride down! :) But it was fun anyways :)
Yeah for cell phone photo's !! :)


 




After our toes and face were frozen we went to DQ for ice cream....So that way out the outside and inside of our bodies where equally cold! :) 

Fun times!!

Christmas 2012


Christmas was a success this year! :) Not that it isn't any other year, I just didn't know how to start  my post so I thought I would try that :) 

On the 23rd after church we went to Henry's parents to celebrate with his family. 

We ate a delicious lunch and topped it off with Christmas goodies and Lynda's famous fruit pizza!



 We picked names this year, so after lunch we all gathered around and opened the gifts.


















Soon after the presents were open we all headed back to church to watch the kids Christmas program, it was so sweet :) 




On the 24th after we did a bit of Christmas caroling with church friends, we headed to my family's for fondue!!






That night we watched "A hobo's Christmas" we used to watch that at christmas when we were kids, so we decided to pull it out again! :)

We stayed overnight and enjoyed a yummy breakfast in the morning followed by a game of risk.  





Well these lovely ladys prepared Lunch






So much yummyness!


And this is the last picture I took of the day! 
Guess I was having to much fun to take more pictures :)

After lunch we played a bit of hockey till we froze (it was COLD!) and then watch the Nativity Story, had some supper then Henry and I headed home. 
Yes, it was a good Christmas!
