Something I learned about Trish when she was visiting, she loves trees, and every night she feels Called to go out and watch the sunset.  
Now that Thanksgiving is over, it's time for us to gear up for Christmas. 
But God has sent us some beautiful weather this week, and beautiful sunsets. 
I like watching the sun set from my front porch. 

Meanwhile, inside, Eric got the big family tree up and lit this past weekend. 
But it's a little hard to get the kids all together, and behaving enough to put on the ornaments. 

So Mommy gets to play with her phone, with bokeh, background lights.  

I'm happy to break out the big guns this holiday. 
I love my Christmas Spirit, it's a wonderful combination of Orange, Cinnamon, and Black Spruce. 

This is my new favorite picture from this week. 
My phone wasn't focusing on the Christmas tree, so I got a screen full of bokeh lights, and I hit Snap, and got this beautiful shot!  I have no idea how it happened.  But I like it!

I did get the upstairs snowflake tree decorated today. 
I was rather proud of myself, since I had a bunch of other kid drama (one kid to orthodontist, and the other requires daily visits to the school to give him eye drops.) I haven't been able to get much done this week.  Still, I love this blue and silver tree. 

And I unpacked our Disney tree decorations after Eric set it up. 
It seems to me, there could be more room on this tree for Disney ornaments. 
On this day, in 2009, we took the kids on their first trip to Walt Disney World, to celebrate all Christopher's tube and ostomy triumphs. It doesn't seem like it's been 8 years, but it has. 

It must be time to go back.
