The last of the Christmas pics. I just love how the outside lights look in the rain. Since I was planning on taking everything down between Christmas and New Years, I had to take the opportunity to shoot them.
These two were through the kitchen window.
We had the kids over for Christmas Day and we did munchies and deli sandwiches. I also baked up some Italian knot cookies and I was dying to try these brownie trees. They came out pretty good!
I should've taken a pic of the table with all the food on it but I was so busy putting everything out and everyone was digging in so all I got was a pre-visit picture of the Christmas crackers, cards and scratch tickets. No one but me ever heard of crackers before, but they seemed to enjoy them, and we all wore our paper crowns the rest of the day.
Later that night, I went back outside to take a couple of pics of my neighbour's laser lights up in the trees.
This is with the brightness boosted quite a bit, as it was roughly 8:00 pm when I took them.
Another house down the street had them as well.
Couple more pics of the kitchen window.
I hope everyone has a happy and safe New Years Eve! I always attempt to stay up for the ball dropping in New York but the past couple of years we were well on our way to sleepydreamland by 11 pm. Gone are the days of all night Dead shows at the Oakland Coliseum!
Happy New Year!
