It is the Christmas season, and as we’ve learned in Florida and Panama, one need not have freezing weather and snow to get in the Christmas spirit. The season is also evident in the Seattle area where we have been enjoying a bit of the festivities. One fun thing was shopping for a Christmas tree.
The nearby Botanical Gardens had a gorgeous display of Christmas Lights, so we decided to check it out. It rained all day Monday but we got lucky in the evening. The rain stopped, it wasn’t too cold, and it was a perfect evening to go out. I managed to find the manual camera settings in the dark so I could get some photos. I had fun taking lots, and here are a few of my favorites. My daughter told me that the display is all done by volunteers and they did an amazing job.
The baby is a great traveler and has slept through every single outing to do errands and shopping, and tonight was no exception. The lump under Drew’s blue jacket is the baby in a fabric carrier where she slept through the whole visit.
The cat stands by the tree looking serene and angelic. So far none of them have gotten into too much mischief with the tree. Breakable ornaments are high and out of reach though, just in case.
My other daughter and her baby are due to arrive tonight, so there is going to be even more fun in the house in the next few days! We are all excited and looking forward to this time. Poor Drew! He will be the only male in the house with a grandma, to moms, two girl babies, and three female cats. 😀 Somehow though, he seems to calmly survive anything we throw at him.
