Revisiting a good week...

I've noticed something.

I tend to be very quiet about the big days. (With exceptions. It's not right to add another person to your family without publicly acknowledging it. ☺) But many times when we have something big going on--something one would think merit a mention--I just don't talk about it here. I seem to need a few days to emerge, and then it seems dated to post about it.

Last weekend, for example. We had an unusually full and blessed few days. When these days happened, we were immersed in the moment. But this time, I am not worrying about being less than timely.

Happy Thanksgiving, by the way. And Happy Advent.

Here are some of the big days we had.

Getting a Christmas tree

I actually prefer to get a tree later in the season. Some in this house have a different opinion! And the chance to go with extended family, in town for Anwen's baptism, was too good an opportunity to miss.

My birthday rainbow at sunset...can you see it?

All of this post's pictures count for at least one of Pretty, Happy, Funny, and Real. But here's a bonus:

Real. That's me; for my birthday, my family crowned me Queen for the Day with an artificial lei.

I tell you what, I'm as rich as a queen every single day with them.

Your photos are so beautiful and inspiring. Especially like the outside of the church and the little ones in close up. So precious. Thanks for sharing these to brighten our days.
