I’m a week behind but I couldn’t resist sharing my Christmas lights for Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Lights from last week.

At one point I thought this was the closest our lights were going to get to the tree!

At least the window lights worked!


And these were quite pretty although quite tangled!

Cee's BW Challenge

Twinkle, Sprinkles and Twizzler

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Twinkle.”

┬áHere are some of the Christmas lights around our house. The other night at dinner, five year old CJ was looking at the Christmas tree squinting and blinking his eyes. He smiled at us and said, “I get sprinkles in my eyes when I look at the tree. Sprinkles, frosting and marshmallows!”

And while we are on the subject of Christmas, here’s the latest escapade of our elf, Twizzler. Much to CJ’s delight, Twizzler has been finding some interesting places to pop up!
