lights all a glow


solo post tonight - Nikon d40x Sigma 30mm lens

I got the lights up tonight and it looks so pretty. I think kodi enjoyed the process too. She's behaving pretty well so far - she hasn't jumped in the tree yet.
It's your last day of finals and you must feel a relief. See you soon and we'll put up the ornaments together. You can put the angel on top - I'm too short.

“Until one feels the spirit of Christmas, there is no Christmas. All else is outward display - so much tinsel and decorations. For it isn't the holly, it isn't the snow. It isn't the tree nor the firelight's glow. It's the warmth that comes to the heart” - unknown

Oh how I love multi-coloured mini Christmas lights...they are such a vivid link to my childhood, especially the older type...still haven't gravitated to the LED's quite yet. Christmas is so nostalgic...I think whatever you grow up with is what you want to stay with when you decorate your own tree and home.
Wonderful pictures!

Your lights are so warm and cheerful, and that quote is so pretty. :) Also, thank you for your sweet comments on the advent calendar. I think the chocolate ones are wonderful - my son would love them just as much!!
