All is merry and bright!

It's that time of the year again.  I love Christmas.  It is my absolute FAVORITE time of year.  The songs that everyone sings.  The decorations that are displayed.  The traditions that are upheld.  The joy in children's faces.  The time when we remember our Savior came to Earth as a baby with the sole purpose of taking our place on a cross so that we may live eternally.  It is truly a magical time.

One of the traditions that my family holds is going to Bellingrath Gardens to see the thousands of lights on display.  To see more about the actual history of that tradition, please visit my personal website here.

We spent the better part of the evening walking through the 65 acres of gardens admiring the view.  Of course, I took my camera along for the ride.  Here are few shots that I was able to capture.







Merry Christmas everyone!

Fair Game

A few weeks ago, Craig and I decided to take Canon to the fair.  We knew he couldn't ride anything or do anything, but we also knew that he would absolutely love the energy, the lights, the excitement of being there.  We were spot on.  This kid had so much fun.  It was sensory overload for him.  In fact, it wore him out so much that he slept until 9 am the next morning (he usually wakes up about 6:30).  All in all, I'd say it was a hit.  We may have to do this every year!

Happy Friday!!!
