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.
What a wonderful light display and you captured them well with your camera. So happy for you to have both daughters and granddaughters together. Have fun!
Thanks, glad you enjoyed the photos and we will definitely be having fun! 🙂
My cats destroy the tree asap. Not much is safe on there. They climb the tree to the top. I’ve learned not to put the special ornaments on it. I don’t want to deny them the fun of playing in the tree.
How nice to have both your daughers and grandkids there for a time. I see great fun coming!
You did well taking the night time photos.
I think cats are notorious for playing in Christmas trees, so we are pretty lucky with these cats. Thanks, glad you enjoyed the photos 🙂
