I'm finding myself here wondering if I'll ever get through these 100 joys. I had hoped to be done by this weekend and here I am with 11 more to share with you but still not finished. But I have to say that I'm still enjoying them and going through each photo and picking just the right one is a great way to relive all of these joys! You'd be amazed at how many photos I took/take when trying to share something with you or for me to preserve the moment. LOTS!
#69 is of a manger scene that my parents have in their stairwell. I'm pretty sure that this one had previously belonged to my grandparents. Either way I grew up with it and I love looking at it every year and remembering every year past.
#70 is a good game of Wii boxing between cousins. They were sweaty and worn out after this match.
#71....umm, excuse me I'm eating here. We had all gone down to Silver Dollar City to see their Christmas Lights and on our way we stopped at McD's for dinner. Caught one of my nieces off guard.
#72....We finally made it there and we're walking from the parking lot up to the front entrance. I love going there every year to see the lights. I don't think it will ever get old.
#72...is Sam poising with one of his cousins. They were having fun and chatting with each other when I turned around and took this picture. They stopped what they were doing and poised for me.
#74...THE TREE! This tree is lite up in different colors and is always changing. They also put it to music and we love stopping to watch and listen.
#75...okay...it's really the same as #74 but who can resist another view of the tree in a different color?
#76...Sam and his other cousin having fun. They all had fun this year and got along so that made us all very happy! One year they will be grown up and won't want to hang around with us so I'm cherishing these moments as long as I can. I hope that they stay close the rest of their lives.
#77 has got to be my favorite tree in the park! I look forward to it every year.
#78 is a picture of my niece and myself. It's really not easy to take the best pictures of yourself by holding the camera but this one turned out the best.
#79 is a picture of Sam and his cousin on the train ride inside the tunnel. I love the expressions on their faces as it was at night, pitch black in the tunnel and they had no idea that I was going to turn around and take their picture. These are great moments!
