2011/364 December Photo Hunt

Whew! Just made it for Karen’s December Photo Hunt. It’s been one crazy month around here, with the kids taking turns getting sick, and enough trips to the pediatrician’s office to consider permanently moving into the waiting area. I really didn’t think I would have time to get all the pictures together, and went ahead and posted the one for Frost, that I already had (and then gave Scott permission to link to it for his photo hunt submission). But, on Wednesday I decided to try to get my act together and play along, so here goes…

1. Lights  This is actually a reflection of some Christmas lights on my living room wall. I noticed them Tuesday evening, but was too lazy to go and get the camera, and put it off until (not so) bright and (way too) early Wednesday morning.

2. Ornament  This was one of my Christmas presents this year. From my best friend in Germany of course! She sent several more, but you’ll have to wait until another time to see them.

3. Card  A little peek into the basket where I have all of our Christmas cards.

4. Frost  Wednesday must have been my lucky day, because we actually did have some frost in the morning! As soon as it was light enough outside, I ventured into the yard with my camera to see what I could find (more to come at a later date!). This is the cover of our fire pit, covered with frost.

5. Treat  The treat I had in mind, was sneaking off alone to my favorite coffee place (Saxby’s – so much better than Starbucks!), but that never happened, so here’s the next best thing: cookies, baked by Greg and Sara. Peanut Butter, Molasses, and Tollhouse Chocolate Chip Cookies Cakeys (I think me mis-measured the baking soda, and they puffed up like this. I actually like them better than the original recipe)

6. Family  No sense even trying to get a picture of my family, so here’s a picture of the Family ornament I made several years ago. It has all our names on it, too.

As for the bonus, show me the winter holiday of your choice, I think most of these cover Christmas pretty well 😉

  1. Yay! I’m so glad you decided to play! Your interpretation of lights is very cool! And isn’t it strange that you seem to have gotten more frost than me this month? I love your macro. Great idea on the “family” shot for a photo-shy family. Beautiful work as always, Michaela. Thank you for participating! 🙂

  3. Good ones, Michaela! Oh, I like those kind of cookies, too. Even the extra large version of the chocolate chips.

    Ah, that’s the kind of frost photo I was hoping to get. Thought this weekend…nope, temps climbing into the 50’s. I’ll have to keep waiting.
