week 52 | what life is all about

OK -- maybe that's being a little dramatic.  I had planned to take a fabulous picture of the loves of my life ~ Doug and the kids.  But life was crazy-busy (duh) this week.  This picture, however, comes pretty close.  Life is about family, fun and traditions, as shown in this, my last Project 52 photo.  for 2011, anyway.

week 50 | festive colors

It doesn't get more festive than a fresh Christmas tree, decorated in years of memories.  These are the newest ornaments in our collection this year (so far), and they're actually old.  They belonged to my Grandma and Grandpa Sackett, and I just acquired them from my sister.  I love them!

week 49 | traditions

The first Saturday after Thanksgiving, it has become our tradition to get the Christmas tree.  This year it took less than 15 minutes (and tears from only one child).  We ended up with a "9-foot" tree that takes us almost the entire living room.  The kids can't wait to get it lighted and decorated!

the kids and Stephanie -- the lovely gal at Foley's who helped us find the perfect tree this year!

week 48 | twinkle twinkle

Lots of lights this week.  But my favorite were at the Creche ~ lighting Darren's gold paper nativity.

week 47 | water

With our big weekend getaway to visit the Payne cousins, I didn't really have time to get out and take pictures of any of the rain water.  I did capture this shot on a nature walk Thanksgiving morning.  I'm thankful for sunshine, crisp cool air, and blue skies.

week 46 | over the top

The Livingstons came to Seattle for business and asked us to join them for dinner.  I decided to work from home and then take the light-rail into Seattle where Doug would meet me before we met James and Lisa at the restaurant.  I happened to look up while I was waiting for Doug, and found the monrail over the top of me!
