Holiday Collections – Tell us about yours

The Holidays seem to be full of collections.  I have plenty of them.

Memories – Of holidays past and stories of family members that are no longer with me but so much apart of me

Lights – Oh did I say lights?  I meant LIGHTS  Too many to count.  Just wish they all worked :)

House decorations

And of course, tree decorations.  Our tree has collections of the old (think my first appartment), collections of hand made items by our kids, collections of expensive Radco oraments and collections of of items pasted down.

Here are a few of colection for you to enjoy.

If you are so inclned, we would enjoy hearing about the collections you hold dear to you in the holiday season.

Merry Christmas.

Taking Pictures Through Tears is a bit tricky

I found out the other evening that taking pictures with tears in my eyes is a bit tricky.

I had the honor of photographing the Women’s Christmas Celebration at my church, Lakeside Church.  Oh, I was alright until I started taking pictures of the groups of ladies.  That is when I lost it as I saw all the amazing women, on fire for God, through my lens.

If you have a chance, stop by the Lakeside gallery at http://lakesidechurch.smugmug.com/

May all of your holiday time be blessed with your family and friends.
