Christmas In Our Neighborhood

Kevin, Katelynn, Sara and I went shopping for Winter jackets and boots. Since we didn’t wanted to get home right away, we looked at some Christmas lights in our street and the next street over. I told Kevin, I have to bring my camera and capture some photos.

Tonight, I walked over to shoot some photos. Three houses had their whole front yard decked out. There was a neighbor between two fully decorated yards, who had a sign saying: “Ditto”. That was very cute and made me laugh. It’s one way to decorate for Christmas. πŸ˜€

The December Waning Gibbous Perigee Moon

The Waning Gibbous Perigee Moon looks very beautiful in the background of our Christmas lit house. I captured some photos, before the Moon was too high in the sky.

UPDATE: Ha! About an hour after I took these photos, the clouds rolled in with thunder and lightning. What a lucky moment I went outside and saw the Moon, in time.

πŸŽ„Christmas LightsπŸŽ„

Christmas stars shine on high,
Golden stars in the wint’ry sky;
Christmas candles in windows brightΒ 
Send s greeting into the night;

While in our hearts the Christmas flame,
Glows with a love like his who came,
The infant Christ of lowly birth,
To bring good will and peace to earth.

Vitruvian Christmas Lights

Last year, our local photography group had a field meeting to capture the Christmas lights in the Vitruvian Park in Addison. This was my first visit at that park. And I really enjoyed it. Going late November or early December is the best time for photography. The park is not as crowded than toward the end of the season. Here are some photos I’ve captured, while we were at the Vitruvian Park.

Christmas Lights & Tree

It’s this time of year, again. Traditionally, the lights and the Christmas tree go up in and around our house the day after Thanksgiving. Kevin works on the Christmas lights going along the roof, and Katelynn works on setting up the Christmas tree in the front room. Sara helps both of them. And I make sure, everything goes to the right spot. And of course, Joshua is the inspector to make sure, Daddy installed the light as they supposed to be.

… and this evening I had the chance to photograph the Christmas lights at dusk. Sara had a friend over. And they were dancing around our little “Charlie Brown Tree”.
