I hardly picked up my camera over the Christmas break. I was too busy enjoying it to photograph it.
Luckily, our friend awesome Jennie was here. She caught the moments I was savoring. Here are three of my favorite pictures as viewed from her camera:
My sweet RedDog, the first one to sit down to Christmas Eve dinner. I love his little body in that big chair, all lit up from the glow of candles. What a sweet boy he is. We hosted 24 people that night and I was running around the three different dining rooms to make sure all was in order. So glad Jennie thought to capture my boy in this moment.
Our family at the Washington DC Temple. We go every year as a family to see the beautiful lights and the nativities displayed from all over the world. This is the first year (in nine) that we have had only light jackets on. No bundling up. No gloves and chattering teeth. Look at Big C who's as tall as me. My family is getting so big. I can't stand it.
This picture of me with my Owlie boy makes me want to burst. This little fellow is my partner in crime. He and I are serious buddies and we're going to be tight for life. He wanted to see the lights with me and no one else. I didn't mind at all. I just love him in his bear hat.
Thanks Jennie, for being our photographer. So happy to have captured these memories.
My computer has been sent off to the doctor for a week. It is very ill. I am typing this from the floor of the piano room with my old laptop plugged into the wall for internet connection. After being wireless for so long, it feels very foreign. Please bear with me during the next week while I muddle through at a much slower pace. Maybe that means the boxes of Christmas decor stacked high in the basement will be put away?
