Week 52 – silent night
It’s rarely silent here, and I feel like there hasn’t been so much downtime in the last 9 days for us. It’s the last week of 2012′s Focus 52 and I decided to focus on Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve, at moments when it was mostly silent.
This is after Santa has arrived (with lots of gifts from us, Uncle Eric, Aunt Meghan, and Grandma & Grandpa under the tree). Our elf, Gumdrop Fred, decided to pose for one last photo before his departure for the North Pole.
Fast forward a week to New Year’s Eve … the littlest member of the family didn’t make it until midnight, or even 11pm! He wouldn’t wear the hat while awake, so I snuck it on his head for the photo.
Soon after, his older sister succumbed to sleep. She was very upset this morning when she found out that she slept through the ball dropping. She decorated her 2013 crown herself, and she wore it again for a good part of the morning.
And so now it’s a new year. I’d like to do another year of 52 themed images, as it’s a good way to think about things differently than just randomly taking photos during the week. I’m hoping for a good year, with my family and friends, and lots of moments to remember together.
Thanks for spending time visiting my blog. I hope that you have a happy and wonderful new year.
