{Theme Thursday} Lights

Time for Theme Thursday with Clan Donaldson!

This week's theme, as I'm sure you've noted, is "Lights".

After my earlier post Prayer, Friends, and Wine, many lovely friends have sent messages about getting together.

This morning, a friend invited me to attend the lighting of the tree ceremony at our local military installation (you all have those within 5 minutes of your house too, right?).

Well, yesterday, the weather was lovely for December....a downright balmy 45 degrees.

Then, the artic wind swung in.  I believe with wind chill, the temperature was more like 2 degrees at mid-day.  Not exactly perfect weather for an outdoor trip.

Luckily, there was a space to watch from inside and then we got to see Santa, drink cocoa and eat cookies....the makings of a great field trip!

Little Bean was happy to see Santa

Sweet Pea was not!

Beautiful tree

Silly ducky

And, the piece de resistance.

So in love with the little wisps that have taken 18 months to show up!


  1. That silly ducky picture is stunning...what a beautiful baby! Sounds like a super fun field trip.

    1. Thanks so much - we're pretty fond of her :)

  2. Too bad the arctic came, you're right yesterday it was so nice! We were going to go to Christmas in the Village this weekend but may chicken out! I love Sweet Pea's eyes, beautiful. :)

    1. I admit, I have no plans to leave the house today, SPECIFICALLY because it's cold :)


I welcome positive, supportive sharing in this community. God bless!
