After making a list and checking it twice…and all of the running here and there…late nights spent with rolls of wrapping paper and ribbons…weeks of anticipation…the moment finally arrived…wishes were granted…memories were made and then it was a wrap!

Over the years our Christmas Tree decorations have reflected who we are as a family. In the beginning our tree was decorated with twinkling multi-colored lights and a spattering of ornaments. For several years our tree was a beautiful hodge podge of ornaments created by our son at school Christmas parties and dollar store treasures. Then there came the day when the colored lights were replaced with white lights and the ornaments were treasured purchases from numerous vacations. Now we are empty nesters with no grandchildren. So now our tree reflects a quieter more serene palette. This year the decorations are a reflection of our love of outdoors and a life blessed beyond measure.
I hope you are enjoying the wonderful holiday season…Christmas is my favorite of all of the holidays. This particular holiday seems to bring out the Martha Stewart in everyone…If you are a book lover you will really enjoy these creative Christmas Trees. Merry Christmas!!!
As I scanned through my friends posts on Facebook I came across the most adorable interpretation of a Christmas Tree...From what I can tell from where I came in on the story is that Sue at Reblinged was asking her Facebook friends to help name her creation…I read a few of the comments and there were several clever suggestions…However, I agree with Sue and have to say that there was absolutely no other choice…So let me introduce you to Audtree Hepburn! Isn’t she a knockout!

…Snowflakes and Cupcakes!
I can’t wait to see the kids faces light up when they see the tree for the first time this weekend.

Last night my husband and I drove an hour North to see the Legendary Lights of Clifton Mill in Clifton, Ohio. I was excited to test out my new photography skills, since I’ve taken a few classes, and am now shooting only in Manual mode and RAW format. And because I now have a remote shutter release for night-time shots. The 50 degree temperatures and weekday night made it the perfect time to go. We didn’t freeze and weren’t squeezed by too many people! We arrived at 5:30pm and there were already a few photographers set up even though the lights don’t come on until 6:00pm. As we munched on some popcorn, since we didn’t have dinner, I talked with the other photographers a bit. An announcer came on a loud-speaker two minutes before the lights came on to notify us and once they did, I heard a…
