But 2 days after Christmas, I took baptism pictures for my friend's daughter in our favorite forest:
And while we were there, we saw the tree in the first picture all decked out.
Loved it and had to bring the whole family back later that day to show them.
After a little trip to the library, Justin obliged my request to walk around by Coast Guard Pier.
All the Christmas lights were still up and it was so pretty. I felt like I hadn't been out much since Thanksgiving and wasn't quite ready for the Christmas season to be over. This brought me some closure.
This, and getting up close and personal with my favorite "Peace on Earth" lights. I didn't see them as much this year because of where we live. So sometimes I would specifically go out of my way just to drive past them.
On an unrelated note, we let the kids choose out their ornament for the year the day after Christmas (50% off, yay). The price tags aren't left on to be tacky, they're there so we can exclaim in 20 years about how cheap they were.
K now I'm done w/Christmas. I think.
