Tree Decorating Time!

The decorating of the Christmas trees is an occasion that is very much looked forward to. Each year the children hunt out their ornaments and exclaim over them. I am always amazed at the memories they have already created in their young lives.

Because we remember moments, not days...

Banana Basics.

Front lit and back lit bananas. Not too exciting, but you get the idea of different light exposure anyway.

Still Learning

For most togs, text on photos is nothing new. I however, am a slow learner when it comes to anything technological. I am currently taking an online course that gives me not only the hows of editing, but the whys. I have to know why I'm doing what I'm doing or it just doesn't make sense to me. I do love the look of text on photos on occasion, so this was a fun and helpful thing to learn.

Editing has become much more fun and now I can post process photos too -- not just Murray.

365/09 Day 322

Last year on this day, we had our first snowfall and it never really left. This year the leaves are raked and the gardens are bedded down for the winter, but no snow. Thankfully.

I took these photos in the same spot at various times throughout the day. As you can see, it got progressively more cloudy. It is now raining, but at least it is not snow!

Just after sunrise to mid afternoon. I love how the light on the tree changes in each photo.

Lace Curtain.

For the entrance to the courtyard, provide a curtain twenty cubits long, of blue, purple and scarlet yarn and finely twisted linen—the work of an embroiderer—with four posts and four bases. Exodus 27:16

Because of You, Unknown Soldier

By Courtney Tanabe

Because of you, I am here
Because of you, I am able to live freely
Yet I do not know you

And I have not done anything for you
But there you stand, ready to fight
And there you are prepared to die
For me

You've fought before
And you'll fight again
For someone you don't know

So thank you Unknown Soldier
Fighting for me
I'm here because of you
And I owe my future to you

Late Autumn Moss.

Sundays| Sarnia Lambton County Lifestyle Photographers

After a busy morning of getting ready for church, attending church, and often having coffee with fellow church members, we like to spend the afternoons relaxing or playing outdoors. Today was especially beautiful -- and perhaps one of the last gorgeous fall days we will have this year.
The guys played a little one on one.
Then it was time for some fun on the tire swing and in the leaves.I love those splayed out little toes!!
Bub peers down from his perch atop the monkey bars.
Off for a hike through the field and to the creek.
I'm pretty sure were no socks in these boots.
Walking the the furrow was much easier. Still a little bit of fall colour on some of the trees.
Should I cross the creek? I wonder how deep it is?
Whew! We all made it!
Aww, Mom!! No posy pictures, please!!
What a gorgeous afternoon!
