So, we sit here watching videos from Christmas's past! My 12 yr old son as a 16 month old. Those chubby cheeks, the eyes, the hand that goes up so he can step over the train tracks. My now 16 yr old daughter as a 4 1/2 yr old. Jumping up into the camera, laughing, doing that "artistic flip of the hair", no teeth. Then there is my mother in law, who passed away in March. Tears sprung to my eyes. This will be our first Christmas without her. Talk about emotional - going from the tears from laughing so hard at my son (bearing his teeth at the camera, about 1 inch away) to tears for my mother in law. What a ride. I am so happy my husband has this thing about video taping everything.

Anyway. We went to look at the lights at Wheaton Regional park on Sunday with my sister and her family.  The lights are soooo amazing. Such fun.

 Ah, family!

 My sister and daughter.

This is my favorite! My 2 yr old niece!

The dolphin.

Love this shot!
