Deck the Halls (a bit early, I know)

Lily has been so excited about Christmas this year. More specifically, Christmas trees. When we go to the stores, she always wants to see Christmas trees. And since they've been in the stores since what, August, she's seen LOTS of Christmas trees. We usually decorate after Thanksgiving but since it's late this year, we decided to get things going early this year. Here are some pictures of the event.

I love all these shots...both for their technical quality and more, for the spirit they exude. Lily looks well and wonderful...

Your photography and Lily's smile make even the sparkliest tinsel seem dull. Your pics almost revived my Christmas Spirit, which is pretty much worn thin by all the commercialism.

Ahhh, dude, it is good to see you back at it! As always, marvelous pictures! I like the tree and ornaments the best!

We'll be getting our living tree from WalMart again this year...with hopes that it'll survive the replant this year.....

Happy Thanksgiving!

P.S. I originally thought that with the new header you were going with a Star Trek theme...."This is the universe. Our mission....."

Been thinking about you and yours. Hoping your Lily is feeling as good as she looks.

It's never too early ;-)

Oh, this makes me excited for Christmas! Have you all ever watched A Muppet Christmas Carol? It may be a bit old for Lily now, but it is one of my all-time favorite Christmas movies!

Val said...

Oh, I am so jealous! I wanted to get our tree up this weekend and never got around to it! Beautiful though!

And another tidbit....when I see the cutest little girl standing next to a Christmas tree wearing the most darling little skirt and sandals............................
I freak out a little cause its like 30 degrees here!!!!!

Lovely tree. Lily, of course, is always cute and looks like she is doing well.

I really love the close up shots. They are wonderful.

Raven said...

Oh... forgot. Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Well, besides the fact that your daughter is simply adorable, I just LOVE the shots where you have the ornament half way off the side. Those are so beautiful. Those would make wonderful Christmas cards. Very nice, Robert! :D

Hi Robert!
When I opened your page and saw the header I knew there would be a new post - yeah!
Wonderful shots that have put me in the mood to get started tomorrow.
Lily is as cute as ever and I hope she is doing well now.
Take Care.

Fun! My favorite is the shot of the candy cane hanging on the tree.

I haven't visited in awhile. I can't believe how much of a young lady Lily is now.

Love the pile of candy canes and all 3 ornament shots!

LOVE the ornament pics! And the one of Lily pointing at the tree melts. Remeber the one of her last year watching the train? Love that one, it's an "archive" photo. You should post that one next to a new one so everyone can see hows she's grown.
