December Daily - Day 26

Like last year, I am stopping at the 26th. That is when we take our family pictures in front of the tree and it is a good place to stop.

December Daily - Day 25

Three pages this year for Christmas day. Our annual sugar cookie baking and decorating. The beautiful tree. Pictures of me and my husband and me and my mom taken by my sister.

December Daily - Day 24

Christmas Eve. The presents are under the tree, the stockings are hung, and Luna is ready for a long winters nap.

A trip with the family to Pedernales Falls at sunset. The water was cold, but we enjoyed the fresh air.

December Daily - Day 17

We added a Santa hat and beard to Luna's Christmas photos this year. She didn't mind the beard, but still hates the elf hat and Christmas sweater.

December Daily - Day 16

A long awaited craft. This has been sitting on my desk for the last three years. It even got boxed up, moved to the new house, unboxed and set on my desk again. I also made a wreath that day, I need to take pictures and post it as well...
Then we went to the Hobbit.

December Daily - Day 15

We checked out Bastrop's River of Lights and spun under the Zilker tree.

December Daily - Day 14

We spent three hours in line waiting for the best bbq I have ever had at Franklin Barbecue. We also spotted a certain celebrity (read tag, I don't want it google-able). Then we browsed the state surplus store.

December Daily - Day 13

Enjoyed a lovely massage, just what I needed with the Holiday stress. Finally decorated the tree.

December Daily - Day 12

Luna went to the vet. They told her she was softer than a bunny. We bought a new car!

December Daily - Day 11

Finally picked out our Christmas tree and enjoyed our sixth year in a row at the symphony sing along.

December Daily - Day 5

First day in Big Bend. It was hard to choose from the 400+ photos I took that day. A 6x6 page just doesn't fit much. :)

Hurried to get my Christmas cards in the mail before heading out to Big Bend.
