How did the last couple months get by me so fast. I spent some time yesterday sorting through pictures I have taken and I am certainly a bit behind. Today I will do more sorting.
So last night we celebrated the new years with our friends. We went to two different gatherings and had a wonderful time. Being the designated driver, I didn't drink any alcohol, but I certainly feel like i have a food hangover this morning as the food was all delicious and I ate too much once again. The conversation and company at both parties was excellent.
The day before yesterday, I took a couple walks down to the National Christmas Tree on the Ellipse on the south side of the White House. Surprisingly, it was still exceptionally popular and there were lots of people visiting. Not only is there a national tree, but a smaller tree for each US state and territory with decorations provided by various groups. There was also a Yule log, nativity scene, and Santa's workshop. I visited all of this in the early afternoon and once again right after sunset. I was so pleased about the evening walk as the sky was a lovely blue and all the lights were already on.
I've been searching for good pictures to make into Holiday Cards Next Year. I'm not sure I captured what I like. I did get some nice ones at my church.
